Why Printings Are Essential For Your Practice

Digital has entered our lives in all its possible forms,  and frankly it is of course very convenient. It has never been easier to take a picture and share it with hundreds or thousands of people in seconds. But while printing photos is becoming easier and cheaper, the paper is shunned. Why?

How cool is that?

In this article, we’ll explain why it is important to print your picture, either in the form of prints, albums or photo frames.

No matter the format, as long as it is your picture.

Printings, a Way to Aave Your Pictures

It might be less “smart” but it is more durable. That might sound silly to say as the paper can be damaged, burnt or torn etc. But, it might be surprising, the paper can be less fragile than a computer or a hard drive.

Whether it’s film or digital photography, one of the problematics of the photographer is to have a secure archiving system of his/her photos.
