Finding the Right Photo Technology

In investigating ways to get high res images for some of my materials that we offer for repositionable wallcoverings, I’m looking into what might be the best, most convenient and affordable photo technology to use.

It’s pretty amazing that with the newest iPhone, you can get a good high res image that might even be better than earlier DSLR cameras — or at least better than my son’s, as he informs me. I think it’s a ploy to get the latest iPhone đŸ˜‰ Actually, he wants a better camera.

In the meantime, I ran across this to explore. In just a couple of months, the technology may have even further improved.

We’ve already found a way to rig a tripod for the iPhone using a coat hanger, but ended up using a Luminex camera to shoot this latest footage. We edited with professional film editing software to be able to compare with the television footage and create our own educational video. This has been very helpful to show that not all repositionable wallpaper is the same.

If you are looking to turn your own photos into high res artwork, here’s a helpful “How To Make [Photo] Murals from Phone Photos” from PhotoJoJo on Apartment therapy. Click the link to read the steps. Not too difficult but you may just want to upload them to Casart coverings, where we can turn them into a large scale wallcovering that can be repositioned, removed and reused. No frame or hanging needed.
