How To Print Photos From iPhone | Framing Non-Standard Sized Images

In the age of smartphones, capturing memories through photographs has never been easier, especially with devices like the iPhone, which are known for their high-quality cameras. 

However, when it comes to printing those memories, many of us find ourselves a bit lost. Not only is the printing process slightly daunting, but the thought of finding the right frame for those odd-sized photos can be equally perplexing.

So, how do you go about printing photos from your iPhone? We will walk you through the process of how to print photos from your iPhone and frame them, especially when they don't conform to standard sizes. 

The rise of iPhone photography

iPhone cameras have revolutionised the way we capture moments. With each new model, the technology advances, making it possible for even the amateur photographer to produce shots that are nothing short of gallery quality.

But what happens after we capture our favourite images? Often, they remain digital, lost in the endless scroll of our digital photo albums. Printing and displaying these photos can bring your memories to life, giving them a place in your home or office rather than just your phone.

Selecting photos to print

Our phones are always with us, allowing us to capture those candid moments. Your phone often holds a gallery of your most treasured memories over the years. To streamline your selection process when deciding which images to print, you can use the 'favourite' feature on your iPhone to curate your top picks, creating a ready-made shortlist of your best snapshots.

From there, you can transfer these images to your computer or laptop using the AirDrop feature, or by connecting your iPhone directly with a USB cable. Alternatively, you can use cloud services such as iCloud or Google Photos to sync your images across devices, making them easily accessible for printing and framing.

Preparing photos for print

Sizing and resolution

The first step in printing photos from your iPhone is understanding the importance of sizing and resolution. 

Your iPhone is capable of capturing images in high resolution, which means they can be printed in large sizes without losing quality. However, it's crucial to adjust the settings on your phone to ensure you're using the highest possible resolution. 

When selecting your print size, consider where you plan to display the photo and choose a size that complements the space.

Cropping and aspect ratios

Before sending your photos off to print, consider whether you need to crop them. iPhones typically take photos in a 4:3 aspect ratio, which might not suit standard print sizes. Cropping can help you fit your photo into common frame sizes, but if you prefer to keep the original dimensions, you will need a custom frame.

If you prefer to print your photos independently, you can easily do so with a high-resolution printer at home. Just make sure to use the appropriate photo paper for optimal results. Alternatively, visiting a local print shop is another great option.

Framing non-standard sizes

One of the biggest challenges with printing iPhone photos is dealing with non-standard sizes that result from personal cropping or the device's aspect ratios. 

At Portfolio Picture Framers, we specialise incustom frames that cater to any size or shape, ensuring that each photo is displayed beautifully, regardless of its dimensions.

Material and style selection

Choosing the right frame is about more than just size. The material and style of the frame can enhance the photo and complement your home decor. Portfolio Picture Framers offer a range of frame materials and various styles and finishes that can highlight the best aspects of your photographs.

Consider display options

When deciding on framing, it's important to consider the type of photo you want to highlight. Are you looking to frame a standout family photo, or perhaps you're aiming to create a cohesive display of multiple images? Think about where in your home these photos will be displayed and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve. 

Are you envisioning a single, impactful photo as a focal point, or are you drawn to the idea of a gallery wall that tells a story through a collection of images? Each option offers a unique way to enhance your living space, so selecting the right approach depends on your style and the atmosphere you wish to create.
