    Photo editing help

    Advertisements
    I was hoping to get some of those free 8x10 canvas prints as xmas gifts for family. DH's dad is always hounding me for pics of DS (he's a grandparent, totally understandable), but always comments on how sucky the quality of them is. These are the two pics I was hoping to use:





    A.) Which one of these would be better for the 8x10 canvas print?
    B.) Would anyone be willing to do some editing on the one most people think is best, to make it look uber awesome?

    Honestly I wouldn't use either of those. They're way too pixilated and once you print them as 8x10s they'll just get fuzzier.

    be cool.

    I was afraid of something like that. All the pictures I have of him are from the same camera...should I just forget the whole idea?

    I wouldn't say that. Do you have a friend who has a camera you can borrow? Or even a friend with a good camera phone?

    be cool.

    I'll check and see how much my awesome photographer friend would charge to do a shoot. I'm just afraid that by the time I do that the free offer will be gone. Xmas shopping on a budget: joy.

    Time for a new camera hon!

    They're really pixelated. Like the previous poster said, they'll get much worse when blown up. Picture one looks the best but I would crop it so you get most of his face/chest. You kind of want to center his face as best as possible.

    I do try, but he doesn't stand still long enough for good shots. By the time I get everything lined up nice and pretty he's running away or spinning or something and it comes out blurry or I end up with a shot of just his eye.

    And I can't afford a new camera. I dont have a problem with the pictures I take, I think they're just fine for memories. Not every picture has to be a total 100% perfect photo op, as long as he's in there somewhere and I can look back through the pics I'm happy.

    I bribe my son for pictures.

    I'll hold something over my head and tell him to hold still.

    Lol DS just laughs at me when I tell him to hold still. There is no bribe that works for him, I've tried everything.

    What camera do you have, and how much did it cost?

    Is it sad I only voted because I wanted to check and see if someone actually said your son looked eww?

    jk. I like the first one, but I agree...it's not going to work to be printed.

    I'm free this weekend and if it's not too cold I'm sure Keira will love to hang out at the playground.
