Not only is the composition spot on, but black and white was definitely the right choice here!

Great way to bring in the reflection to make this photo more interesting.

Simplicity is key – perfect example.  This would look amazing as a wood print!

3 Tips for Making the Most of Your Pixuru iPhone Prints

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

Now that you’re ready to create photo art from your phone, lets go over a few tips to make certain your friends will be jealous of your amazing iPhone prints.

Pixuru Prints

Canvas, Wood, Metal and Framed prints by Pixuru

1) Use an editing app.

Just a couple of tweaks can drastically improve your photo – give Snapseed a try. It has filters to really make an impact, plus other tools to make minor changes if your image already rocks.

2) Pre-plan your space.
Take the time to look at your space and figure out where the best place is to hang your work of art — and what size would work best. If you’re going for a statement piece be sure you don’t go too small, but be careful with overwhelming a cozy room with a gigantic canvas.  Just because Pixuru can print the World’s largest iPhone print doesn’t mean it’s right for every room. Plus, if you’re planning on ordering from the Pixuru app there’s a feature built right in to help you with print size.

3) Match your photo surface with your personal style.
Do you have an eye for the classical? Then go for our classic canvas print option. Wood prints are all the rage right now; they’re rustic, timeless, and perfect for the crafty, DIY, organic-minded spirit in all of us. On the other hand framed and metal prints work well for a sleek modernist feel — framing your art or adding that metallic sheen truly “ups” the gallery feel of any room in your home. If you’re feeling bold, why not try the one that would stand out the most on your wall? After all… with Pixuru you are your own artist.

 

Introducing the World’s Largest iPhone Print

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

When the idea of Pixuru first came up, we knew it would be a struggle to prove how well we could blow up a smartphone photo. We’ve seen it happen, we know it rocks, but how can we really show people the true quality? The answer… the World’s Largest iPhone Print, of course.

WorldsLargestPrint

With our patent-pending printing process that allows us to create extremely large prints while keeping the integrity of the picture, we created this 25 ft. wide by 5 ft. tall panoramic print of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.

This record-breaking print has already been featured by companies such as Built in Chicago and Digital Trends. With the combination of our 3 obsessions; printing, iPhone panos and Chicago, we’ve got a plan in the works to really show off the city and all that we can do. Stay tuned!
