Memories can be fleeting, but pictures last a lifetime. That has always been true with photos, but ones produced with film of yesteryear may have turned brittle and yellow over time.
The technology of today has improved the lifespan as well as the quality of those precious photos, ones that can now last for generations to come in the form of high-resolution prints, books, and other keepsakes.

Photo printing software has enabled everyone from professional photographers to those with only the experience of taking quick shots with a mobile device to produce high-quality pictures. With the ease of simply logging on to a website, making a few quick choices, and placing an order for shipment, any picture can now be turned into a lifetime treasure. Thanks to modern technology, pictures become beautiful mementos.

How to Get Started

Using online photo printing services is easier than ever. The first step is to choose a site that is user-friendly and easy for new customers. A website like Shutterfly is the right option, as the company provides step-by-step assistance through the entire process. After setting up a free account with a user name, email address, and password, and click on some menus to see all of the printing options and familiarize yourself with the site. Follow the prompts to begin uploading photos from your computer or Facebook, and then decide which ones to print.

Memories in Traditional Form

The most traditional way to preserve memories with photos is to order prints. By choosing the type of paper and the size of the prints, those are easy to order. And most sites offer special prices for first-time customers, as well as those returning to place subsequent orders. Enlarging photos is also simple, even in the form of canvas prints, and all choices on the website show the sample of the order before the customer needs to finalize it. Seeing it on the computer screen shows exactly what the print will look like.

Preserve Memories in Book Form

Years ago, making a photo book required a large album with sticky paper and cover sheets. Today, photo printing online allows pictures to come in the form of smooth pages in various types of photo books, with no additional assembly required. By simply selecting the photos from your uploaded files and organizing them in date or any other order you choose, the book is already in progress.

The next steps only involve making decisions, such as a hardcover or soft leather cover (among other choices), adding more pages, and designing those pages. Photo printing sites offer a plethora of templates from which to choose, sorted by theme and style. Simply choose the template that best highlights your photos, and the samples pages will allow you to see how the finished pages will look. And by selecting a user-friendly site like Snapfish, there is likely to be a sale on photo books.

Saving memories for yourself, family or friends has never been easier, and the products available to print today deliver the best quality photos ever offered.
