13 Tips for Better Photo Printing

By michellehorton |

If you’ve been following my baby scrapbooking saga, you know that I’ve been working on finishing the scrapbook that I so quickly abandoned after my son was born. I’ve also been working on compiling photo albums as part of my 20 Things Before Pregnancy #2 list.

And although photo sharing/printing sites are great (like Snapfish, Shutterfly, Picaboo, etc.), it’s infinitely easier to print them at home. Plus, you have much more quality control. I can’t tell you how many prints have turned out looking fuzzy or off-colored from photo printing sites.

13 Tips for Better Photo Printing

Take Better Photos

Besides having a decent camera, there's one key secret to taking better pictures: TAKE MORE PICTURES! The more photos you take, the better the chances that one will turn out great. I take far more discarded photos than saved photos. (By the way, this photo was taken with a Canon Rebel, but I have a Canon PowerShot for a basic point-and-shoot. It's all about the photo editing.)

Many thanks to Canon for sponsoring this post and for providing me with a brand new shiny PIXMA printer to play with.
