However, when new designers work on their prints, a lot of usable and beautiful materials can go to waste because of lack of the proper tool for the job, which is the crop tool. Cropping a picture using the computer can be a breeze.  It’s not actually rocket science, you just have to have some basic computer knowhow and the right software and voila.  But actually cropping an image which you would like to decorate your wall with can be a lot trickier and it is very important to prepare for it before you even order your prints. Following is a short guide on how you can crop your photos prior to ordering them to be printed.

Changing Focus when Cropping for Canvas Printing:


It will be essential to take into account your image focus.  Before you do anything, you will need to step back to see the totality of the picture objectively.  You must not forget that as a designer or a photographer, you should be able to decide clearly what the focus of your image should be.  However, will your guests agree that what you think should indeed be the focal point?  You might need to take a closer and a fresh look at the picture sans predetermined concepts to see if there could be other things in the photo that could be the focus as well.  When you have decided, start cropping it out.  Take out the background or the object, be it a person which may well deter the eyes to improve the photo’s impact.

Enhance the Composition

Cropping the image can also enhance the composition and the symmetry of your photos for canvas printing.  Oftentimes, when we are taking pictures without too much thought, we fail to really get a precise balance.  There could be a lot of blank space round about the subject, or too little or a bit askew. Cropping out the space on one side can easily move the subject nearer to the centre to improve balance so the image will be better presented on your walls.

Altering Tone

Being able to stay focused is generally a good thing.  However, sometimes being totally focused on just one subject, object, or person, most especially if it is the first thing that caught our attention could be limiting as we tend to disregard the annoying background that affects the quality of the photo.  One classic example is when you have a beautiful photo of your grandparents’ anniversary but at the background there are kids acting insanely.  Wouldn’t that not kind of tonal disparity destroy the quality of an otherwise perfect photo?  Good thing that you can crop away that kind of background and restore the main image that you chose to be the focal point of your work.
