  • Is small the way to go?

    Any input on going small with pictures as portable keepsakes as opposed to doing large wall size pictures? Here is an example of what I mean. The canvas size is about4x5 and I can cut out the oval and display it in a clear glass frame. The picture was one I took of my daughter-in-law and I placed it on an art background I scanned in.

    I think it is an excellent idea. Your example is stunning! Would you also supply frames/lockets etc. for displaying/storing them? Tom

      or how about printing TINY portraits for miniature enthusiasts?

      I bet there are people out there who would love to decorate their doll house with real familiy pictures!

      OR.....with the holidays coming, how about ornaments for the tree?

      or better still how about a "family tree" for genealogists?

        Good ideas. I instantly thought about the lockets, as did Tom. The miniature framed photos for dollhouses is a *great* idea too. Miniatures sell for a good buck, and you don't even have to sharpen them! What more could you ask for?

            Capturing the miniature market. Great idea. I did it for myself and never even thougt of a possible market. I bought a watch that clips to my pocketbook and it has a heart shaped frame to put a favorite photo in. I put my 2 dogs as puppies on a background together, miniaturized it and even made several with different color backgrounds so I could change them if I wanted. It was cute. I can see a market here and you guys have some great ideas. Keep the think tanks going.

              Go take a look...

              At the auction sites online and put in Miniature and your find a large space that needs the painting or photos you mention...

              Go for it!

                Hello! I have two stained pictures. Actually I have more, but these are representative. These pictures were in a mat which had mulitple openings all covered by one piece of glass. Over the years something happened and where each picture touched the glass, the image was stained, basically central. Where...

                Prints from Walmart
                by paulette conlan
                Noticed a sign in our local Walmart advertising that they print pictures in one hour from a card or CD using the Fuji archival processing system - I guess the same one that the online processors use. I was going to originally upload some but because I am still using a modem I though it would take too...

                Your opinions on a "business"
                by Blacknight
                What do you think the prospects would be for someone doing a business (on the side) that dealt with photos not in a "resurrection" manner but more in a manipulation manner such as my sea pix in the thread "whatever happened to oils??
