One thing that has really impressed me about my new website partner, SmugMug, is their seamless purchasing system. Simple and safe it is all about giving you the confidence that you are being dealt with by professionals.
If you purchase a large print and are worried that it might not be at its best because the photo can’t be blown up that big? Smugmug has already thought of that and it won’t display an option to buy a print size larger than the image can support! Brilliant.
Of course there always remains the option to just download an image and then send the file off to a third party printer. SmugMug make that easy as well. At the top of the purchasing screen are two tabs, PRINTS and DOWNLOADS. Select downloads and you are offered a variety of file sizes from small internet quality images to the full sized original image. Pay for your download and it will be transferred straight to your computer. Easy.
However, finding a good third party printer who ensures the quality of image that you want may not be easy. I have linked my website to Loxley Colour, a printing company that has my confidence and will make certain that you get the image of your dreams. Want to know more about Loxley Colour printing?
