Can I turn my hard copy photograph into a Fracture glass print?
We all have that favorite printed photograph we’ve held onto for ages or have in a photo album, but may be too afraid to display it safely, or want to send a copy of that memory to a friend. If you want that special memory printed on glass, all you need to do is take a high resolution scan of the physical photo and save it as a digital file on your computer.
There are a couple ways to do this:
1. You can bring your photo to a place like Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, or a similar local place with a dedicated photo center that has a scanner powerful enough to scan at a high-resolution. These scanners can provide you with a hi-res scan of your photo and the best possible quality digital file of the picture. Just be sure to let them know it will need to be saved as a .jpg file with no white space around the image.
2. We've also had a lot of great results using phone apps like Google PhotoScan for both iPhone and Android phones.
Once you have the digitized version of your photo, simply upload the file to your own computer and head over to the Fracture uploader.
