Creative Photo Sharing
Elevate your images above e-mail status with a more inspired approach to showcasing your best shots
Apple iPhoto and Aperture users can organize, design and order custom-printed books, prints and more right in the application. The same goes for Adobe Photoshop Elements users. In fact, many photo applications are building this one-stop shopping into the software.
No matter which software you use, custom digital labs like Mpix feature a variety of specialty prints and photo gifts. In addition to standard offerings like calendars and greeting cards, MpixPRESS can turn a photo of your favorite athlete into a trading card or put your best travel shot on the back of a deck of playing cards.
Bay Photo can print your images on mugs, mousepads, jigsaw puzzles, T-shirts and even ceramic tiles if you want to get especially creative with the kitchen remodel.
The best part about working with a professional lab for these types of specialty prints and gifts is that you don't have to worry about the results. I tried creating a photo T-shirt a few years back with a do-it-yourself kit, and let's just say I needed a new iron, an ice pack and a new gift idea.
