When it comes to memories, you don’t need to be an expert to recognize when one should be included on the wall.  Whether you’re a budding photographer, or simply interested in getting a family portrait up on the living room wall, quality is important.  If you’re interested in learning everything you need to know to frame a print, then the first place to get started is right here at Modern Memory Design, where we walk you through all of the decisions you’ll need to make when it comes to printing the perfect image, and getting it framed properly. 


At Modern Memory Design, our goal is to ensure that you don’t feel like you have to be an expert when it comes to your wall prints, because you can trust us to get you what you need. 


What Does the Image Quality Need to Be For Framed Art Prints?

When it comes to digital photographs that you are interested in printing and framing, then you’ll want to ensure that the image file is as high-quality as possible.  High-Quality photos give you very crisp and vibrant photos that are great for picture printing and framing.  How do you know if you have a high-quality photo?  This all boils down to the image resolution.  This term, image resolution, refers to how many pixels are in the digital file.  The rule of thumb is that the more pixels your photo has, the larger you’ll be able to print the photo without losing resolution.  The preferable DPI or dots per inch for framed art prints or framed photo prints is 300dpi. 


Secondly, a high-quality image is printed in the same aspect ratio as the photo.  In other words, when you take a photo on your phone, you can choose to take pictures in a 1:1 ratio (square) or a 9:16 (widescreen) or even a 3:4 (standard).  If you shoot a photo in a 1:1 ratio, you wouldn’t want to print an 8x10 photo – the photo you print would need to be square, so you would want an 8x8 or a 10x10 print and frame.  You can change the aspect ratio of your photo by cropping it.  Cropping your photo shaves off parts of it so that it goes from a rectangle to a square, or visa versa. 


If you’re looking for a program that you can use to crop your photo into a specific aspect ratio, and also change the dpi, then Photoshop works great.  If you don’t have this program, there are several opensource software options available for download online.  The closest option to photoshop would probably be
