It’s a question we often hear from people, how large can you print smart phone photos? At Apollo Print Services Wigan we have state of the art large format digital printing facilities, so we are able to print to almost any size you can imagine.
When it comes to printing a smart phone photo or any digital photograph there’s a few things to think about first. The final size of the photo, the resolution and of course if the photograph is properly exposed and in focus. Viewing images on a small phone screen or even a laptop screen is very different than printing a photograph large.
Some digital cameras and smart phones take some stunning panoramic photographs, the very best way to view these is by printing them as large as possible, all the amazing detail of the scene suddenly springs to life.
At Apollo Print Services Wigan we provide a complete digital photography print service, our experts can assess the quality of your photograph and advise just how big they can be printed.
