Bonusprint, which has been around since 1979, has a heritage of printing happy family snaps and They want to encourage people to take and capture photos that they are ‘Proud to Print’, rather than simply being uploaded onto social media and lost in the digital space.
They've compiled some tips ‘on how to make the most of your mobile pics’ as their research shows 63% of Brits wish they printed more photos, and 65% of Brits admit to editing themselves in holiday snaps. You can see the full interesting finding of BonusPrint's research in the below infographic.
You can download their guide: downloadable guide, or below are some of the top tips for achieving the best photos with your mobile.
- Ditch the Flash – smartphone cameras are overly bright so ditch the flash when you can
- Crop, don’t zoom – you lose quality by zooming too much
- Get close – the nearer you are the more control you have over the lighting
- Wait for the Golden Hour – the first and last hour of sunlight will bathe your photos in a soft, glowing golden light
As part of the #ProudtoPrint campaign, I was given BonusPrint credit to use to print out my favourite summer school holiday photos of the kids. I ordered two canvas's to hang Proudly in my living room, and I was super pleased with the quality. You can see below in the photos I took, the canvas's is perfect!
I found the Bonusprint site well laid out and easy to navigate. They offer a good range of products and gift ideas, from polaroid prints to photo books, canvas's and more - there is something for all, and for all budgets.
I had to upload the photos of my choice, which was dead easy and edit it if required. It will then show you what your finished item will look like, which was fantastic, as one photo I uploaded the face would have been in the fold, thus, not showing. So I did a quick adjust and all was perfect. Once ready I made the order.
The building work on our house is still going on, but once done I can't wait to hang my canvas's on my new living room wall.
