The advantages of printing photos over having them digitally.

There are many reasons why you should have prints your photos. Here are just a few:

  • To preserve your memories. They can be safely stored in albums or frames for several years and retain pristine quality. Digital files do not degrade or fade over time and will last indefinitely if backed up properly. The most likely problem with digital images is that they will be lost due to technical issues such as a hard drive crashing, a smartphone lost or damaged, or the online storage service going out of business. Having prints of your most precious photos is a way of ensuring they don't get wiped and lost forever.

  • To share your photos with others. Printing photos gives them a special touch that cannot be achieved by just displaying them on a phone or computer. You can share your cherished memories with loved ones by giving them as gifts. This is an excellent way to create lasting impressions and preserve precious moments.

  • To decorate your home. Adding printed photos to your home is a fantastic way to infuse personality and style. You can frame and display them on your walls, create collages, or put them in photo albums. This is a simple and enjoyable way to personalise your space and make it feel more like your own.

  • To improve your photography skills. Printing photos can provide a fresh perspective, revealing details that may have gone unnoticed on your screen. This includes the composition, exposure, and colour balance. If you take your own photos, this can enhance your photography abilities and capture better future photos.

  • Enjoy your photos. There's something special about holding a printed photo in your hands. It's a tangible reminder of a particular moment in time. Printing photos is an excellent way to cherish them and revisit the precious moments they capture.

What makes printed images better than digital ones?
  • Printed photos are more tactile. The sensation of physically grasping paper elicits genuine and lasting emotion.

  • Printed photos are more vibrant. Printed photos usually have more vibrant and intense colours than those displayed on a screen. This is because screens utilise RGB colour, whereas printers apply CMYK colour.

  • Printed photos are more accessible. At first, digital images are convenient to use and view. However, as more images accumulate, they may become neglected and forgotten. On the other hand, physical prints displayed on a wall or in your home provide constant accessibility to the images.

If you have any important photos you want to preserve, I highly recommend having them printed. It is a small investment that will pay off in the long run. So there you have it, just a few reasons you should have some prints of your photos.
