Creating the ultimate canvas prints from your photographs is easy with editing software like adobe lightroom 5.


Canvas Prints With Digital Photos


When it comes to creating canvas prints with digital photos, there is nothing like it on the market. You can quickly take your digital photos and match them up to your colour palate throughout your home design. Consider the options of trying to decorate your home with all your interior colour schemes then combine your wall hangings, it can become quite the task. Looking for wall hangings, the right size and colour that you like to match your interior design is extremely hard at times.


By using your digital photos, you can quickly create the exact size requirement that is usually impossible with regular store bought pictures. Now you could get paintings created but that option just might require an arm and a leg. With canvas prints, you have the ability to produce perfection without the high price tag. Let me take you through a working example that I have done for my wife and me just recently.


Below I am going to show you an actual Custom Canvas Prints With Digital Photos that I had created for my home.

From the close up above and the distance shot below you can see exactly how fantastic you can create the perfect canvas print that fits just the way you want it. When you look at the wall colour and the actual canvas print you can also see how great the colours of the print blend with the wall colour. It just doesn’t get any better than that.


Now here is where your Custom Canvas Prints skyrocket a hundred fold above and beyond any picture from the store. These are two pictures that I took from my cameras; one was the waterfront of where the old sailing club use to be and the second is the new sailing club.

Canvas Prints With Digital Photos On Wall


The first photograph that you’ll see below shows the waterfront of the old sailing club. If you look along the shoreline, you can see the front half of a blue canoe. In the canvas print above you can see I only cropped a circle of the photo and superimposed it over my second picture as a layer. From there I just added some shadowing to cause a hanging plate effect.


This shoreline photo is just around the corner from where I live about a 2 min drive. In fact every day that I would go sailing I would pass this spot going in and out from my slip. The location of the inserted picture in the top left of my canvas print is the shoreline on the opposite side of the water from where I keep the boat.


Even where the new Sailing Club now sits, I would sail pass it all the time on my way to the open ocean or return home. You find as each year passes all the times you sail past all the young sailors learning how to sail the little 14 – 22 foot boats how great life is. And when you get out into the open waters to see all the other sails on the larger boats cruising along like yourself, you know your living life.

The next picture below now is the main photograph I used of the new Sailing Club. This photo opportunity presented itself when my wife and I went for a short evening stroll around the block. You see this club is only two houses down from the location of my home. If you take a good look at the picture you will see, The Full Moon Rising On The Setting Sun Across The Night Sky. You can even make out the little night light hanging from the post over the south pier.


When you take your photos and edit them in software like Lightroom 5, you have the opportunity to create a one of a kind masterpieces like no other. The good news is even if you do not have graphic editing software, nowadays the online companies have the required software so you can create your masterpiece with them. Once your done creating you can have it printed out, stretch and shipped to your door for an excellent price. Here is a link you can check out on  Best Photo Book Review.

      Hi Ben it sounds like you and your wife are already ahead of most where she has been scrapbooking for years which is great. I just recently started looking at digital scrapbooking.

      The great thing about the canvas prints is you can take your favorite pictures and size them up to the area you want to hang them and get the exact size you need for the space. Where you wife is into scrapbooking she would be able to create a very unique canvas print to be created for you space. Having the ability to mix and match as in scrapbooking to create an extremely custom image would make a fantastic canvas print and depending on your wall space you could even do split canvas prints as well.

      You would have many great options and I think your wife would really have fun with it.

  5. I like canvas prints, but my husband is an artist and loathes them because everyone seems to have them and he doesn’t consider them true art. So we have his stuff on our walls. 🙂
    Anyway, I still get sneak in a few here and there. What sites or services do you recommend that product high quality canvas prints for reasonable prices?

    • Travis Smithers

      Its great your husband can paint pictures to hang and I would rather hang a personal painting over a canvas print that was store bought any day of the week. Most of my canvas prints are of the grand kids and scenic that have meaning to me so I would have both if I new how to paint.

      One of the best places that I would recommend that will give you high quality for a good price especially when you do it on one of there promotional periods would be Shutterfly. They have been around for some time now and have a great warranty for what they produce. There are others the are quite capable of doing your prints as well but I trust Shutterfly.

  6. I love, like you mention, that digital photos that I take, can be customized to size and shape to match my decor.

    Using software like Lightroom 5 is also a great idea. It absolutely can bring the print to life!

    Loved this page. I’ve favorited your site, for a later visit!

      Hi Stephen glad you liked the post and as you tour the site you will see a lot more on using lightroom 5 and other software for manipulating photographs to creating the best possible results. This site is all about taking photographs right through the post production stage to the final product.

      Canvas prints is one great way to show your artistic side with a camera and hanging up pictures that have great emotional meaning. So far I find my favorites are the grand kids and scenic areas around where I live and travel to.

      I have heard of some people going to car shows for those exotic cars to print up and other places like the races and sporting events. The possibilities are endless.

  7. Hey, this is a great idea. I have so many pictures from travelling and have been trying to figure out what to do with them. Rather than just post to FaceBook I’ll take my favorites and have them printed onto canvas. This is an excellent conversation piece as well. Thanks for posting!

    • Thats one of the great things I find with the canvas prints is that you can take your best or favorite photographs and have them enlarged onto a canvas print that you can hang in your home somewhere. Also depending on your home design you could have one picture broken up to fit onto multiple canvases to create some new art form from your photos as well.

  8. Hi travis, let me tell you: your canvas print is so gorgeous. I’d love to have it in my living room, seriously!
    My husband likes scenic photography and he has accumulated a lot of digital photos, but not sure what to do with this. We had created some photo books recording our road trip and our live while living abroad, and we use shutterfly to do that.
    Honestly, I didn’t know that shutterfly can do canvas print too. I will tell my husband about this and I believe he will go crazy and wants to order one already.

    • Hi Rina and shutterfly does do a really nice job on doing up canvas prints for you, I know your husband will like the way they will turn out if he decides to go ahead and create some from his photos.

  9. Hello Travis,
    I never really thought about having canvas prints on my walls at home. I love painting and always thought that was the true form of art. Canvas prints is another expression of art! Your website is very expressive and I like it! Reading some of your posts and viewing your photos have opened my eyes to understanding a little more about canvas prints. Thank you

    • Paintings are a great form of art but for most people they do not have the ability to create nice enough work they would want to hang or display in their homes. Canvas prints on the other hand is something that just about anyone can do and create from their photographs.

      With canvas prints, you have the option of what type of photo you would want to turn into a canvas print. You can choose size, style, single, double triple etc. You can even take your photos and minipulate them with a photo editor to create something really spetacular that nobody has ever seen before.

      So in a way you can get very creative with your canvas prints like you may do with painting.

  10. What a great idea! I’ve never thought abut doing something like that.
    I may have to get some of my pictures from England done or have a nice wedding picture made up.
    You have a lot of info on your site. I love to take pictures and would love some more insight as to how I can take better quality ones. I also really want a nice camera but have no idea where to start.
    I’ll be checking out more of your site. Thanks!
