Digital photography makes your print processing easier and cheaper. You can choose your photo paper, which printer type to use or choose an online printing service to print yo…ur photos. Here are some of your printing options: . Online printing services. The ease of an online printing service often outweighs the expense, since at home you also have to consider the expense of toner and a printer. Most services allow online uploading of your prints, and mail you your prints for pennies on the dollar. Some even provide online cropping and noise reduction tools or the ability to store your photos online. . Printing on photo paper. Buying a printer, toner and good photo paper can be expensive. However, you have more control of the quality of your prints and you donï¿½t have to wait to find how your prints will appear. Answer The great thing about digital photography is the number of choices that you have as well as the fact that you can now print only the photos that you want. Here are some of the options for printing: 1. Photo printer at home-there are quite a few home photo printers that have the memory card slots right on the front of it so you can either download the photos to the computer and then send what you want to the printer (allowing you to edit and save the pictures first) or you can simply remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the slot on the printer and hit the print button. Some of the printers even have an LCD on it so that you can scroll through the photos and do simple editing on the printer. 2. Photo processing retail-Almost all of the photo processing shops that you used for your 35mm film will now have equipment for digital processing. You can drop off your memory card or some shops have you select what photos you want as well as the quantity off of a computer monitor like device. 3. Online printing services-very low cost-you just upload the photos to the site and make your selections and then they send them to you in the mail. Also great for special occassions because most offer space on their website for your pictures and give you a password that you can send to your family and friends so they can view your pictures and order what they want, pay for them and then have the pictures sent directly to them. Digital printing offers various options and your creativity will make things better. There are templates that are available online to fit your different specifications. There are photo booths that would do the printing job professionally for you, and of course, photo printing at home is a hobby that is gaining so much popularity because of the satisfaction that emerge out of the efforts exerted by the ordinary people.
When we all shot 35mm film, we all produced images with the same aspect ratio (3:2), and the ever popular 4x6 print is based upon that. In the digital world, however, digital …cameras do not all share this 3:2 aspect ratio, and as a result, all digital photos do not convert well to 4x6 prints. The most common aspect ratios for digital cameras are 3:2 (most digital SLRs) and 4:3 (most compact point-and-shoots). Some cameras allow you to choose your own aspect ratio. Aspect ratios differ between manufacturer and even between models from the same manufacturer. Awesome, huh? . What is aspect ratio? Aspect ratio is simply the relationship between the width and height of your image --as you see in the chart below, we get the aspect ratio of an image by reducing the numbers to their lowest common denominator. . Print Size ---> Aspect Ratio 4x6 ---> 3:2 5x7 ---> 7:5 8x10 ---> 5:4 20x30 ---> 3:2. Some day, this discrepancy may sort out--maybe labs will print in other aspect ratios and maybe manufacturers will agree on an aspect ratio. Until then, here are a few things you can do to prevent an Insolent Cropping Crisis: . If you know what size you like to print, get a camera that agrees with that aspect ratio. . Some labs (try Snapfish) allow you to select "true digital size" and will not crop your image. . Print with a lab that allows you to select your own crop when you want to -- try myPhotopipe.com. . Be vigilant when taking your photos and leave enough "safe space" around the edges so that an auto-crop won't cut off anyone's head or eyeball or some such. . Write to your congressman. If they have time to pioneer HDTV, they have time to save us from crappy crops. . Origianal Post by Susan Moriarty at www.picturesnob.com
Digital printing "sees' the information in a digital file andtransfers it to a digital printer driver. The driver commands theoutput unit, known as a printer, and output is pe…rformed with ahard copy made.

A few things are required to digitally print banners: 1) Suitable banner artwork with the message you want to display 2) A large format printer With regards to artwork…, if you have no idea how to digitally prepare a file for print I suggest you emply a graphic designer to create a visually impressive image to capture your target audience attention. Artwork will need to have a minimum file resolution of 85 to 150 dpi at full image size, depending on viewing distance of your banner. A lower resolution of 85ppi for banners that will be viewed at a distance (greater than 3 metres away) and a maximum of 150ppi for banners that will be viewed up close (less than 3metres). If you do not have a large format printer, I suggest you look for a wide format print service provider. All you will need to do is specify to the print service provider how long you want the banner to last, what type of environmental conditions will it be placed it (eg. rain, full sun, snow) and budget. With these things in indicated, they should be able to make a recommendation as to what print material, printer ink type and finishing method is required.
You will need a USB cable. If you bought your camera brand new check the box. This is a small cable with two connectors at the end. Plug this into the USB port, this is either… at the back or side of you laptop or if using a computer on the tower. Go to 'Control Panel' which is either on your desktop or available via the start menu under 'Programs'. You should see an icon that says Device. Click on it and you will see files. Click files and you will see all of your images. Select the image and then right click then print.Good luck.
Generally when people talk about 'digital printing' it is in opposition of 'offset printing'. This can be confusing since they both begin with a digital source. Offset print…ing is the kind of printing that newspapers and magazines use where the print is separated into usually 4 different color plates (hence the word 'offset') whereas 'digital printing' relies on a digital file being sent to a RIP (it processes the file for the printer) then the RIP tells the printer how to squirt the ink onto the paper. No separations are needed for digital prints. The trend in printing is moving away from offset altogether, however offset's strengths have always been incredible speed (of printing) and cost effectiveness. As digital printing advances these differences diminish. HP even has a 'digital offset' printer that works like a modern digital printer, but with the capacity and speed to rival an offset printer.

The Decorated Apparel Industry was taken by storm in late 2004 when some of the first commercial based direct-to-garment printers were released. Before you can truly understan…d why digital garment printing has become so popular, you will nFor years, if you wanted to print a couple of cotton shirts you would use either digital transfer paper or try to screen print the order. Both of these decorating methods have their positives, but they also come with negatives. Digital transfers allow you to create as little as a one-off shirt via a standard desktop inkjet or laser printer. The cost to make a single transfer can range from $0.50 to $2.50 depending on what ink and paper is used by your textile print. However, the transfer paper is covered with a polymer (AKA adhesive) that glues the ink to the top of the shirt. The polymer typically will leave a hand where it is applied and can discolor the shirt or create a window around your graphic. New transfer papers have been released that either minimize the window or uses a 2-step process to eliminate the window completely. Screen printing has traditionally been the decorating method of choice for most of the apparel that you see in retail stores. With screen printing, ink is only dropped down on garment where the design is, thus eliminating the undesirable window that can occur with some digital transfer paper. However, a graphic must be separated (the process that breaks the down graphic into the different colors needed to print it), a screen must be burned for each color and it requires a screen printing press to be setup. This can become a very time consuming and expensive process when you only need a few shirts. Commonly referred to as a short run, which can be as low as 1 shirt to as many as 48 depending on the size of the shop, the cost per a screen printed shirt could easily be more than what your customer is willing to pay for. With the changes in fashion leaning more toward short-run, limited edition personalized garments, the need for a high quality solution grew. Of course, apparel decorators are never satisfied with the concept that things are never going to get any better. Manufacturers and distributors continued to push the boundaries by finding cheaper and faster ways to screen print or to creating better inkjet transfers papers with less hand or feel to them. But the introduction of DTG digital garment printing allowed us to take the positive aspects of both inkjet transfers and screen printing in a solution that could be done in a compact space. The concept of DTG digital garment printing is basically using a digital printer to lay down a textile water-based ink that has chemical binders that allow the ink to remain on the garment without a polymer being applied to the top of the shirt like a transfer. The ink is then cured to the garment using either a heat press or a textile conveyor dryer. On average, an apparel decorator can take the artwork from a customer, put it on to a garment and get paid by the customer in less than 10 minutes. With some modification to the artwork, the decorator can personalize the next garment with a name, number(s) or different colors and produce another custom garment in minutes. That is the beauty of DTG digital garment printing - short run, personalized garments in the matter of minutes. eed to understand some background history. you can conact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
