PRINTING YOUR IMAGES
The purchase of your digital images includes permission to make an unlimited number of copies and/or reprints for personal use. Your files have been saved with the sRGB profile which is the color profile most professional print labs use. We highly recommend printing your images at www.mpix.com versus a consumer lab such as Walgreen’s or Walmart. Consumer labs print from a single color profile (not one specific to your file) which often results in a poor color representation, so proceed with caution if you choose to go that route. When printing, if the option is available, do NOT have the lab color correct your files, this is already done for you. Choose matte or lustre paper (instead of glossy) for a professional finish. You can view instructions on how to do this on my website, under DETAILS and then CLIENT INFO, by clicking on How To Print Your Digital Files Using Mpix.
Casual Moments Photography is not responsible for the quality, color, or cropping results of the lab you choose. If you have questions regarding printing, please contact the lab of your choice PRIOR to printing the files.
There is a red “BUY PHOTOS” box on each of your galleries. That is OPTIONAL. It is intended for those who wish to print through my pro lab for a nominal charge, or who wish to offer this option to friends or relatives so that they can order their own prints instead of you doing it for them. You can order prints up to 11×14 (use the 8×10 folder for those) and a few novelty items like mousepads and coffee mugs. AGAIN – you do not have to order through smugmug, but it is a nice way to let others do so if you don’t want to handle it for them.
Before opening your files, it is highly recommended you make additional back-up copies of your images for safe keeping.

PRESERVING YOUR PRINTED IMAGES
Photographs play an important role in documenting our lives and passing on memories from generation to generation. While we can’t save any moment forever, there are a few things you can do to protect and preserve your printed photographs. To ensure print longevity, please review the information below.
The best place for any printed photograph is matted and framed. Why a mat? A mat separates your photograph from the glass and allows the image to ‘breathe’, also making sure it doesn’t adhere to the glass. If the photograph isn’t matted, it will be in direct contact with the glass and, because of changes in temperature and humidity, will adhere to the glass over time ruining the print. When displaying images (including canvases), try to avoid areas of excess heat, humidity, and bright light to prevent fading and/or damage to the print. If you choose to display your images in albums, please be sure they are of archival quality. Never use albums with glue pages or plastic overlay which have the tendency to damage photographs.
Get the most from your images by displaying them in your home where you can be reminded every day of your beautiful family…these images are truly the best custom art that anyone could have! For display ideas, check out my Pinterest Board!
