WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
We’ve worked hard to make this process as simple as possible, but there are some basic steps you can take to ensure you get the result you’re after.
At home, you can prepare your images for development by applying any necessary edits or retouching you made need. Remember that once they have been created, the results can’t be altered, and it’s your responsibility to make sure your images are print-ready.
In particular, it’s important to observe a couple of basic elements of your image, to ensure the end result will be exactly what you have in mind. This includes:
- Overall colour: Double-check that all shades and colours aren’t oversaturated, or undersaturated. Heavy colours (like red) can often become overwhelming, once printed, while cooler colours taking centre stage in your image might be further exaggerated, once the piece has been developed.
- Contrast: Carefully weak the contrast of your images during editing, but be sure not to go overboard. The same applies for sharpness and brightness.
- Size and resolution: If you’re looking for services like this, it’s likely you already have a size for your image in mind. Remember that there may be limitations that depend on the resolution of your picture. If you want it to be larger scale and still high-quality, you’ll need to make sure the resolution is significantly higher than usual.
Above all, if you’re not sure where to start, we recommend getting in touch with the experts at Southern Cross.
A photograph is copyright protected from any unauthorized reproduction through development, distribution, public display or manipulations. Copyright protects the rights of the photographer / artist, from another intending to use a photograph without their knowledge and permission.
We take COPYRIGHT seriously at Southern Cross Printing, and respect the work of all artists. Please ensure that the work you submit is yours to rightfully do so.
b) Image Quality
We ask you to remember that whilst we take every care to ensure that any artefacts are removed from your supplied image files ( i.e. Dust spots etc ) , if we should miss some prior to the piece being developed, ultimately it is your responsibility to supply files that are print ready, and therefore blemish free.
With all image printing and various treatments and materials used – there may be slight colour variations. We will use our expertise and experience to maintain the image to as close as original as possible.
