Copying Panoramic Prints

Photography prints come in all kinds of sizes these days from the small to the impressive extreme size of the wide panoramic. The panoramic photo has been around for many years and the format has been well used over the years to document school groups and landscapes. At first glance, these extra-wide images would appear to be nearly impossible to copy. Although the unusual size makes them technically more challenging to copy, these large images can be copied just like any other print.

Working in Wide

In late 2019 a couple of panoramic photos arrived from clients who were looking for copies of the photos. The first photo was in three pieces and needed a lot of work to get a full print for display. That image had been delivered by e-mail so scanning was not required.

The second client, however, had sent a panoramic image that was a lot wider coming in at a total width of 43 inches (over 3.5 feet or 1.09 metres). The photograph had been taken in the early nineteen sixties and featured an entire school group including of all the staff and pupils. It was a beautiful image that had been photographed and printed to a very standard.

I’d certainly never seen any panoramic photo on that kind of scale before. After scanning the original and some repair work in Photoshop, the photograph was ready to be printed and sent back to the client by mid-December. The whole copying process took just under three weeks.

Questions about Copying

image-copying

A number of clients have recently asked some basic questions about copying, repairing or retouching a photograph, so i thought i would answer some of these queries here.

We start with what happens to the original image and the answer is that is it used to create a digital version and then its role is complete. It is placed in a flatbed scanner which then produces a digital version that can be edited, enhanced and then sent for printing. Scanning is quick and does not harm the image.

One aspect that is important is that the original image is never sent away. It isn’t dispatched to a photo lab or anywhere else. This means that if you use one of the digital services, you are dealing directly with the person doing the work  – me, Richard Flint. No shop assistants or nameless individuals. The original photograph remains safe.

Add to that the ‘while you wait’ aspect where a photograph, negative or slide can be copied and returned quickly without having to leave it anyway, it allows valuable images to be copied with no risk of loss. Ten minutes and i have what i need to work with and the original can be back in your hands. Simple.

Finally i often get asked what i types of things can be digitised or copied and the answer is pretty much everything from pencil drawings to old negatives. The only issue is the size of the original which is fine up to A4. Anything larger than that would need special scanning.
