Why Is It Important To Use a Professional Photography Lab To Print Photos?
If you have obtained a copy of photos on USB then you might be like some people who like to print photos using places like officeworks instead of a professional photography lab. This can be detrimental to your photos and here’s why!
One of the most important reasons to use a professional photography lab to print your photos is colour. When professional photographers retouch their photos they sometimes have specific filters they add to the photo or they have adjusted colours to ensure the correct colour of the image. When printing at places other than professional photography labs you will find that the final finish is not the same as what you see on screen or what the professional photographer intended.
The second reason is quality. Most professional photography print labs guarantee their product for up to 100 years or your lifetime. This means that once the photo is printed once, your family and generations to come can appreciate these images without having to reprint them because the colour has faded and the photo has disintegrated. The quality of the professional photography papers are thicker and last longer so they stand the test of time.
Variety…..professional photography labs have variety in the types of photo papers they use. The standard papers are satin and glossy but you can also print your images on specialty papers such as metallic or pearl. These professional print papers will allow you to add that extra special something to your images. You will also be able to print a huge range of sizes as well as custom sizes for your images.
Do you want to risk printing your images at a mediocre print lab? Either purchase a product from your photographer so they can use their professional photography lab to print your images or if you want to do it alone then ask your photographer who they can recommend for printing. Often as a consumer you won’t have access to professional photographer labs that they use but there will still be some around that can cater to the general public.
