Update II: Help Pick Photos

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 14 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Yay! All my photos were selected for display!

Now I need to figure out what size to print them as and what frames to buy. Any suggestions?

All the photos are a 1:1.5 ratio. I’ve found some inexpensive frames at Target that are for 4″x6″, but I can safely print up to 6 2/3″ x 10″ without compromising the image quality. And while It would be cool to print at that size, I can’t find any frames! I suppose I might be able to get them framed at a local shop, but that costs money.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Recommendations?

  1. You should mat them too… If you need any help my dad does all of his own printing and framing for his photography. I’m sure he could gived you some pointers!

    Yes, I do want to mat them. Does your dad have any suggestions on where to get frames?

    So here’s the issue with the larger sizes: for whatever reason, frames come in 4×6, 5×7, and 8×10. The ratio’s being 1:1.5, 1:1.4, and 1:1.25, respectively. In theory, I could get a 8×10 frame, blow up my photo to 8×12 and then crop an inch off the left and right. But then I’ve surpassed my maximum resolution.

    Framing at 5×7 means printing at 5×7.5. This is better then printing at 8×12 because I’ll still be within my maximum printing resolution. I also only have to trim off a quarter inch off each side. This seems like the easiest and cheapest way to go.

  3. I believe he gets most of his frames at Aaron Brothers Framing. Every once and awhile they have a really good sale. The only one I know of is the one in Highlands Ranch although I imagine there is on around here somewhere.
