FototimeTips to ensure the best quality for Photo Gifts : Looking for the holiday gift that ‘keeps giving?” A photo gift may be just the answer. A very special photo captured in time and printed onto a mug, mouse pad, puzzle or even a Christmas ornament can last for years. In order to ensure the highest quality photo gift item, FotoTime, a leading provider of digital photo and video solutions, recommends several things to keep in mind when you are taking and selecting a photo. First and foremost, your photo should have good lighting, color, contrast and balance. Take some time to go through your photo library. Also, consider using your favorite photo editor to correct common problems such as incorrect white balance or improper exposure.

If you are thinking about mugs for gifts, keep in mind how the image wraps around. This means you should use a photo that is wide (landscape) and not tall (portrait) to insure more attractive results. Also consider that the image will be printed on a black or white mug surface; so choose an image that will look best against these backgrounds. When it comes to holiday greeting cards, most companies offer 4x8 slimline or 5x7 folded cards in both portrait and landscape formats. Whatever you select, choose a photo that either conveys the season, such as an outdoor shot with snow, or is personal and includes your entire family and pets.

In all cases, you can add text but keep your message short and concise. All labs will shrink the size of the text you enter to fit on the cards. If your message is too long, the text will be small and difficult to read. Calendars are very popular gift items. Since you are choosing a photo for each month, give some thought to the 13 images (one for each month and the cover) you select before creating your calendar and make sure the images have the best quality. You might want to select images that depict the seasons or special memories that correspond to months in the year.

Best quality photo gifts - Dimensions
Because of the dimensions of the calendar, FotoTime recommends that you only use landscape and not portrait photos. If you select portrait photos, the lab will crop out a significant amount of the image when creating the calendar. Holiday photo gifts can be a wonderful way to share memories with friends and families. Keep these tips in mind as you begin gathering images for your gift items to ensure best results.
