As you know, I switched from all print to digital images in galleries. It was a hard decision to make but I completely understand that technology has changed how we share our images with family and friends. I still want everyone to understand the importance of printing their images but with the changes I've made, it will be the best of both worlds.
Let's talk about those galleries! I love them. I didn't think I would ever be happy with digital galleries but I've grown to love them. It has streamlined my editing process which allows you to get your images much faster than before when I had to wait for prints to arrive. So how do they work?
Each session has its own gallery. You can share the link with family and friends all over the world so they can enjoy your story with you.
Make sure that you download all of your images from the gallery and store them on archival discs/USBs or in the cloud to ensure that they are safely tucked away. In Collections that include a USB, I recommend still saving your images in more than one place. Computers fail, hard drives fail, discs fail, USBs can fail too. Just take a few minutes to save your images to a couple different places to ensure that they are kept safe.
You can also buy professional quality prints directly from the gallery. You can right click on an image to bring up a section where you can purchase them. You do have a print release and you are welcome to print anywhere you'd like but you have the option to print with my professional lab at lab cost. For instance, the lab charges me $8 for an 8x10, so your price for the 8x10 is $8. I don't put high markups on any of my prints because I want you to have access to archival quality prints at an affordable price.
Family members and friends will also be able to download and/or purchase prints from the gallery when you share it with them.
If you have any questions at all or need help with the gallery, please reach out to me, I'm always here to help! Even if it's just to decide where to get a certain type of print like wood or metal, or where to find the best quality canvas.
Have a blessed day :)
