If you’re like most people, then you have a phone that’s filled with the pictures you’ve taken over the years. With storage drives now larger than most people could possibly fill, and cloud-storage freeing up even more capacity, you might wonder how exactly you’re going to view all of those images. After all, whipping out your phone every time you want to see a particular picture of yourself and a few select friends from a holiday ten years ago is hardly ideal. In fact, most of the people reading this will have photos in their possession that haven’t been looked at in years!
Given that Cheesy Smiles booths provide digital copies of every image taken over the course of a rental, this is a problem we’re familiar with. Let’s take a look at some of the ways in which you might get those photos into your day-to-day eyeline.
Our first solution is the most obvious: if you have a photo you’d like to see more of, why not print it out and position it somewhere you’ve likely to see it? A frame on a desk in an office, or on a wall in a hallway, is an ideal position for something you’d like to see on a daily basis. Not all printing services are alike, so go for something professional and slick. Don’t forget to also invest in a frame to match the quality of the image!
Set them Up as Digital Wallpaper
Just about every device with a screen in your home will also come with a screen-saver. Your phone comes with a lock screen, your computer comes with a background image, and many modern televisions also come with the ability to install a background image when they’re sitting idle. The advantage here is that you’ll be able to rotate several images, which means variety of the kind that you won’t get from a fixed, physical photograph.
One problem with this approach is that images taken on different cameras will be sized differently. If you take an image that’s been optimised for Instagram, it’ll probably be square – which means it’ll display strangely on a standard 16:9 display.
Is image-editing software worth it?
If you have a particular picture that you’d like to make a central part of your living space, then you might be tempted to open it up in Photoshop (or something similar) and tinker. Software like this comes with a little bit of a learning curve – but even hobbyists can get decent results from it, and there are plenty of tutorials available online.
What about Photo Booths?
Cheesy Smile photo booths don’t just provide you with the digital copy – you’ll also get physical prints of the images taken over the course of a night. That means you don’t need to worry about touching up, resizing, or paying extra to have those minor flaws corrected.
