Canvas art is one of the most popular forms of wall print for home owners thanks to the value for money and range of images that can be found on canvases. At Fotoviva Art Prints we are well known for our quality canvas prints and we thought it worth mentioning our panoramic prints collection and how they can best be integrated into your interior designs.
When you are decorating your home you may well come across a wall which has an unusual space to fill. Traditional canvas art is based on the normal photographic ratio so may be too deep for the area. This is where panoramic canvas art comes in. Thanks to the wide angle image ratio they can easily be hung in places where there is not much height but plenty of width – think above fireplaces, landings and over beds.
Some photographic images work better than others in the panorama format. We have a great selection of perfect images by our team of photographers which were created just for this purpose. Wide angle forest scenes, panoramic seascapes, wide landscape vistas and panorama floral prints – we have it all, and the panorama canvas selection is growing all the time.
So how are panoramic images created? There are a couple of ways our photographic team produce panoramics. Sometimes a normal photo taken will look better with a panoramic crop, cutting the top, bottom or both off the picture. This works fine but is not the best solution as the image size is then reduced. We offer large panoramic canvas prints so we need to ensure there is enough resolution in the photograph to enlarge to these sizes.
The better method is by taking several photos of the scene and merging them together using software such as Adobe Photoshop. This creates a much bigger file which can then be printed as large panorama canvases without loss of detail. We always check our picture files to ensure they will print at the largest size we offer, and usually the camera equipment our photographers use is high enough resolution even for cropping of the image.
Together with the standard large canvas panoramas, we also offer the awesome triptych canvas panoramic prints. Splitting the panoramic picture across three canvases is a great way to hang your panorama and it gives them even more impact for your walls. Most of the panoramic images will vary in height so we offer them in various width sizes, up to 60 inches wide. We can even print panoramic canvas bigger if required! You can roughly estimate the height of the panorama but if you require the specific dimensions of a particular piece please contact us before ordering.
We can even print your own digital image as a panoramic canvas. If this is what you prefer, just email us the size you are looking for and we can work out our best price for the canvas. We have done many panoramic canvases for photographers who have taken some wonderful images and are selling them to their customers. And rest assured, we take just as much care and attention to detail with your own panoramas as if we were printing our own professional images.
Take a look around your rooms and you will probably find an empty space where a panoramic canvas picture would look great. We've mentioned how great our canvases are and how professional photographers use us for printing their canvas pictures so rest assured, when you purchase a canvas print from us, you will be very happy! Take a look around the panorama wall art section and you will find many great pictures to choose from. You can click on any of these examples to go through to the panorama print page. Enjoy!
