Digital Photo

Strangely enough a digital photo looks exactly the same as any other photograph. It is only the basic technology that has changed, in terms of the way the image is captured. Prints really won't look too different from one another. For example, a digital photo may be printed on any size of paper (or other material) and a digital photo may be printed in colour or in black and white. You can even use speciality media (like textured papers) and speciality inks for all kinds of photographs.

Photographic paper is also produced in various different forms that are either glossy or matt, and that vary in thickness. You need to be sure of what you want and the effect that you are going to end up with.

If you are going to produce your own photos, you will also need to be sure that you have the correct software to be able to download them from your camera to your computer. Since you will always get proprietary software with your camera, this shouldn't be a problem. Then, if you want to do a bit of work on your pictures, you will need suitable digital imaging software as well. This is not essential, but you can make huge improvements to photographs and you can also have a lot of fun using special effects with the software. Examples of improvements range from rectifying colours and making them more believable, or natural, to getting rid of unwanted elements. You can also add all sorts of amazing special effects - and even add elements to your pictures.

Printers for a Digital Photo

There are many different printers that you can use to print out your own photos, including laser prints and inkjets. Inkjets are popular with DIYers, but they do tend to use a lot of expensive ink. To save ink - and time - you can use a lower print resolution, but that may not be acceptable in terms of the quality you need. So before you make decisions, experiment on a small scale. Keep a careful note of the results and once you are happy with the results, save the settings that work for you. Then you can decide exactly what you are going to do with your next digital photo.
