How to Transfer a Photo to Canvas
To Transfer a Photo to Canvas Select a High Quality Image for Print
To transfer a photo to canvas or acoustic panel begin by selecting a quality image for panel production. A quality image is characterized by high resolution and DPI. Image resolution refers to the detail an image holds. So a higher resolution image will print onto your canvas or acoustic panel with greater detail (below is a chart that explains the exact pixel requirement for the specific panel dimension). DPI stands for Dots per Inch so to transfer a photo to canvas or acoustic panel an image must have a minimum of 200 DPI. It is not necessary to meet both requirements but together image resolution and DPI will result in a quality image print. The chart below will walk you through the image selection process to help you select a quality image to print onto your acoustic panel or canvas.
To transfer a photo to canvas or acoustic panel it is best to select an image that meets both our image resolution and DPI requirements to ensure your image does not appear pixelated. It is also important to note what size room your image panel will be displayed in. If you plan to hang your panel in a small room the resolution and DPI will need to be higher to ensure that your image is sharp because the eye can pick up small details from 2 to 3 feet away. If you plan to hang your acoustic panel or canvas in a large room or auditorium, image detail is not as important. When viewing an image from three feet away or greater, your eyes will automatically make images appear clearer than they actually are.
