A Test Drive

Printing Your Phone Photos

How many photos are on your camera roll? We ask ourselves this question frequently, and our answers never fail to leave us astonished. Our days become marked by the shutter: documenting surprise reactions, quiet mornings, and long-awaited trips. And photo by photo, our camera rolls fill up while our storied lives stay put. In celebration of moving these images off our devices, we asked a few folks in our community to put their camera rolls to the ultimate test — and put them into print.

I probably take 100 photos a day on average, so I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when I actually take the time to print them. Digital files are convenient, but there’s something extra special about having a tangible copy too. I’m always pleasantly surprised at how nicely my phone photos have printed and how easy the whole process has been.

For quite some time now, I’ve been wanting to scan this tiny 4 x 6 image of my mother and me that was printed back in 1986. I have to admit I was nervous to see what quality would be produced from an old photograph that I took a picture of on my phone. It turned out BEYOND beautiful.

My photos always come out looking just like the photo in the phone. To be able to have them printed so easily and in good quality is just so awesome. I also love that my kids have all of these prints and albums of our favorite memories to always look back at.

While I love the freedom and the infinite quality that comes with digital photography, I do think there is something special about printing photos. It feels like the last step to the process, and when I hold a printed photo, I feel like I am holding something that feels timeless and complete.
