    Good morning as you know I go on many country walks and I saw these put your images on to canvas adverts well I thought I have a particular favourite view point from an old wooden bench at Luddesdowne of the sunset so I had it done and I am quite pleased with it ,its 3 ft x 2ft and I have hung it in the front room this photo doesen't really do it justice:smile:

      That is beautiful Woo. I have two photographs I have taken put onto canvas more than twenty years ago, one of The Gower Peninsular and the other of The West Coast here,

        That's lovely Woo, you picked a good 'un, mate! :blue thumb: I like the sound of the size too, big enough for the viewer to appreciate the detail in the photo but not large enough to dominate the room.

        Are you managing your walks a bit better now, then? :)

              I'm presuming you need to take the original picture with a fine or raw setting on the camera for it to blow up that big with out turning into a blurry image.
              Don't know what I'm taking about, just thinking aloud.:smile:

                Good morning @pete my friend I usually use the chart below my camera 20 mega-pixels although I take most of my photos set to 10 mega-pixels and my ISO set to 100 but I still have a lot to learn as this was only my 2nd photo to canvas:smile:

                ps.I find JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)to be the best file for me I know they lose some of their DATA but I have used Raw files when I used to do wedding and portrait work:smile:

                      I've got two cameras that I use, an old Nikon SLR and a Sony compact.
                      The Sony one has a lot more pixels than the Nikon.
                      Sony is 20 but the Nikon is only 6.

                      But I also find confusing the fact you can change image size.

                      I usually have mine both set to Jpeg as it's the one most sites prefer for uploading.

                          I never worry about changing the image size as every time I use the camera I probably only take 40 to 80 images :smile:


                          I think its easier to think in terms of how many pictures it will take to fill up your memory card. You will get the maximum number of pictures if the image size is at it’s lowest setting. By the same token, you will get the minimum number of pictures when this is at it’s highest setting.

                          In practice, this means that if getting as many pictures as possible on your card is the most important thing to you, (and its not for me)then you need to adjust the image size to the minimum available setting.:smile:

                            My old 16yr old Nikon will only accept a memory SD card of 1GB.

                            The Sony has a 32gb SD card in it.
                            Takes a while to fill that up. :biggrin:

                              Woo, you can just take a damp J-Cloth to them if need be. I can do that to my acrylic paintings too with no harm. ;) It is oil paintings where the problem lies.
