Re: Photography & Riding.
Thanks guys. What I was looking for are comments from the artistic perspective rather than technical. I have been making the canvas panels for about a year now, and have made about 15 panels just this past winter.
FYI, the photo is printed on real linen canvas. The printed canvas is then stretched and fastened onto a wooden stretch-frame. Most people will hang the picture up just like that, and quite frankly they do look fine. However, the formal presentation of such picture or painting is to mount the panel in what is called a "drop frame". You can Google it and see how that works. I am thinking that a drop-frame, large enough for a 16" x 31" picture would be the perfect way to present the 3 composite panels!
Initially, I was thinking of mounting the 3 panels on a white mat (or foam) board to make up the composite, but I can see now that the white will tend to accentuate the gaps, which isn't what I want to do. A "neutral gray" or even matte black background will be much better!
Bob - what setting are you talking about? The only setting that I needed to change was the color profile for the printer driver, which is very easy to do.
BTW, if anybody is interested in the details on how to make stretched canvas panel, just say so and I can get into more details. It is very easy to do, and I will guarantee that the end result will be relatively inexpensive and looks quite professional. Your biggest expense is going to be the printer. The 13" x 19" print that I can make will create a 10" x 16" panel, since I need to have that 1-1/2" border around all sides to wrap around the stretch frame.
