I have had so many people write and ask about the frame I used for this canvas (the frame is totally digital). Did I create it myself? Where did I get it? What shadow settings did I use? Tons of questions and one easy answer!
You will remember that I did THIS post on the cool online photo editor called Picnik. I did the entire frame there and it took all of about 2 minutes and looks totally real.
First I uploaded my full size image (already cropped the way I wanted it)
Then I clicked on the CREATE tab
Then I scrolled down to MUSEUM MATTE (it’s a free one)
I played around with the settings and ended up with the largest size frame and matte
When I was done I clicked SAVE and SHARE
I saved at 100% at the highest quality possible
And ended up with this.
Most canvas printers only need 100 – 150 dpi for crisp canvas prints so I could make this baby BIG (mine is 50 inches long).
And now I smile every time I walk in my room
(except for the fact that I have no bedside lamps…anyone have an in with IKEA and can tell them that Jakarta really needs a branch?)
