In recent years it has become incredibly popular to decorate the walls of your home with canvas photo prints. The reasons for this range from the price to the ease of availability, but the latest innovations in digital technology have added originality to that list of features.

It is easy to see why people feel so strongly about the art works which hang on the walls of their home. After all, everyone who visits you is going to see the images you’ve chosen and like it or not, they are going to make judgements of your personality and world-view based on the type of art which you prefer. In an ideal world, we’d all be able to commission talented artists to produce artworks which exactly fit our criteria, but the truth is that very few of us can actually afford to make this kind of expensive investment. The option which most people fall back on is a canvas print. Prints of this kind, whether traditional art works or more modern canvas photo prints are readily available from art shops, galleries and furniture shops and usually come in at an affordable price.

That much is the good news – the bad news, however, tends to be the limited range of options which are available. If choosing and buying art is a reflection of your personality, then where does the fact that the art in question is mass produced fit in? No matter how much you may enjoy a particular image, the fact that is also hanging in hundreds if not thousands of other people’s houses at the same time can’t help but take away from its’ impact. That’s why creating your own canvas prints is such a tempting option. Whereas, once, it would have required artistic skill and specialized equipment to do precisely this, the advent of digital photography has brought about a situation whereby absolutely anyone can put their own photos on canvas to create stunning works of art.

You may wish to create a gallery standard portrait of your kids, with the difference being that the image captured would have all the relaxed joy of a snapshot taken in your own home. Alternatively, you may want to create a canvas which is purely artistic in nature, selecting a dramatic landscape or urban shot. Whether you want a family image or something which showcases your skills as a photographer, the process is equally simple. Once you’ve selected the image which you wish to turn into art, simply upload it to the website in question. There, you will move step by simple step through the process, altering the size and shape of the canvas and selecting any alterations to the color palette until you have exactly the image you desire. Then it will be printed onto artist quality canvas using the latest laser printing techniques, the canvas then being stretched round a strong wooden frame using the fashionable ‘wrap-around’ technique. Since the canvas is wipe clean and impervious to the fading effects of sunlight, it will spend many years looking just as wonderful as it does the very first moment you first put it up on your wall. The same sense of creation and empowerment can be applied to photo calendars, with a dozen or more images being transformed into a personalized photo calendar to get you through the year with a smile on your face.
