I love the look of canvas pictures. You can take a basic photo and enlarge it to be hung in a home with no frame required. There are so many different sites out there that run specials on printing canvas pictures. I finally decided to take advantage of one of those deals this past Fall. We had our first professional family pictures taken and I wanted to create a timeless piece of the kids that I could place anywhere in the house.
#1 TIP when you are ordering your canvas print:
Always pay attention to the "warning notifications" that are telling you
that your picture might not be sized or placed correctly.
I selected a "wrapped canvas" which I thought would look really nice since I wasn't planning on framing it. When I was editing the picture I couldn't figure out why the warning notification was telling me that the picture wasn't fitted right for the canvas. After trying multiple times to fix it I finally went ahead and ordered it anyway because from the front view that I was looking at it seemed perfectly fine.
Needless to say that because it was a "wrapped style" it was trying to warn me that the picture wouldn't fit over the entire wrapped area...edges included.
Here is what it should have looked like on all of the edges (3 out of 4 of the edges looked like this.)
Here is what the left side looked like because I hadn't placed the picture properly.
Luckily, I already had the perfect spot picked out for this and the left side wasn't even going to be visible! :-)
