A baby announcement just isn't the same if it doesn't include a photo of your newborn. The old saying that says a picture is worth a thousand words could not be truer when referring to a birth announcement. Words will not be able to describe how cute your new addition really is, only a photo will be able to do that.
The main concern we hear from customers at Basic Invite is they are worried their photos will not print very clearly. No one wants a photo announcement with a photo that is not very clear. However, This is a never a worry when ordering from Basic Invite. If there is a quality issue with your photo Basic Invite's card creator will give you a warning letting you know that the photo you have selected is not a high enough resolution for you photo to print clearly. This allows you to either replace the photo with a higher resolution version of the same photo or to switch the photo to a different photo. This ensures that your photos will turn out brilliantly.
How To Ensure The Best Quality For Your Photo Birth Announcements
What Are High-Quality Photos?
Almost any photo downloaded directly from a camera to your computer or even most photos downloaded directly from a smartphone will produce a photo that will be a high enough resolution to print clearly.
If you have had professional photos taken you will want to make sure that you ask your photographer for high-resolution photos. Many times a photographer will give you low-resolution photos in order to allow them to fit more photos onto a thumb drive or DVD as high-resolution photos are very large and use a lot of memory.
What Are Low-Quality Photos?
Photos downloaded from the web will most often time be a very low-resolution photo. For example, photos downloaded from Facebook, Instagram, Flicker etc. When a photo is uploaded from your computer to a photo sharing site the website will downgrade the resolution so that it is smaller and can load quickly online. This is why when you then download the photo from one of these photos sharing sites the photo will not be a high enough resolution to print clearly on a photo birth announcement.
So just remember when you are selecting your photos for your birth announcements to ask your photographer for high-resolution photos or to make sure you use the photos downloaded directly from your camera or phone and not the ones you saved from Facebook.
