Here are five great tips to help you with printing those great polaroid photos for keepsakes or hanging them on your wall for display:

1. Take a great shot.

Like they always say, taking a great shot is more than half the battle won. Even if you didn’t seal the perfect moment, with Print For Fun’s photo cropping tool, you can always crop the photo to make sure you get a great polaroid print out for keeps.

2. Choose Large Polaroids for printing if picture was taken in landscape orientation.

Tip: Polaroid photos look best when printed in portrait orientation. But if your shot was taken in landscape orientation, fret not! You can print using Print For Fun’s large polaroid, which prints your polaroid photos in a square! This will be suitable for printing both landscape and portrait shots. Phew!

3. I need help brightening my picture!

Had the experience of taking a shot in a slightly dimmer setting and wanted to print out the photo to remember the moment, but the picture was just too dark? When you send your photos to Print For Fun, the good folks have a system in place to check every photo to ensure that the photo has adequate lighting and the print out justifies that amazing moment you wanted to capture. We can’t however, brighten absolutely dark photos.

4. Printing multiple polaroid copies for friends. Nightmare? Not anymore!

Each polaroid shot is unique, which goes to say you will never get to recreate the same shot again, even if you tried. Imagine doing that for a group shot with 10 friends! Sending your polaroid photos for online printing with Print For Fun, ensures you get that same great group shot for 10, looking exactly the same (for 10), so no one will complain they look less flattering in one as compared to the other.

5. Choosing a matte or glossy finish.

We know we only get to choose the size of the shot, or the border of the photo, but we can’t choose the finish! Matte lovers, we have a solution for you – print your polaroid photos online! Print For Fun has a choice of both glossy and matte finish for your photos. In case you can’t decide, print both!
