We’ve been slowly (Lynn thinks too slowly!) making prints for our family room. We like metal prints and have been pleased with ones we’ve ordered from MPix. When they sent us a 25% off coupon last week, it was time for another order.
Having images tagged and organized in Lightroom is a big help for something like this. Using its filtering capabilities helped me quickly come up with some (too many) candidates. It was also easy to choose images based on size. I needed enough pixels for a quality larger print.
I spent a few minutes converting some I thought would look good to monochrome. I sorted them based on which ones I liked the best and then asked Lynn to help. We narrowed our B&W choices down to the ones you see below. They’re in date order, along with info about each.
In the end we liked the photo of the deer the best. I think we can appreciate looking at it for a while. Our print should get here next week – I hope it turns out as well as the others we’ve ordered from Mpix.
Do you make prints of your photos? Have you tried metal prints? How do you pick the ones you hang on your walls?

It looks like tropical storm Elsa is heading our way. If you’re in the projected path, stay up to date and stay safe.
And for those of you in the US, Happy Independence Day!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Take care of yourselves and each other. And if you can, make some prints!
