Framing an instagram photograph from your phone.
We were asked recently if we could take an image off an iphone4s and print it A1 size..
Never one to turn down a challenge we decided to have a go.
The first step is to look at the image compression to see if we could get a decent size. Looking at the image there we knew that there would be a loss in quality when printing that big, so we added some noise and colour adjustment in Photoshop and then printed the image on an archival lustre paper.
This is a great quality paper, very heavy with good colour density. Next step was to cold mount the piece to a conservation board to prevent the paper waving (Cockling).
For a frame we chose a large ash frame which we limed to get a beautiful soft white finish and box framed the work to paper size keeping it off the glass.
