I’ll tell you why.
A canvas print is an amazingly beautiful thing, it not only enhances your photo or artwork but it also give your ordinary picture life and a three dimensional look which is a brilliant idea if you’re thinning of having something to hang on your wall or if the person you’re buying one for has some wall space that needs filled.

Photo restoration and old photo restoration
Ok lets start with the things then can get annoying when you walk into someone’s house, I would like you to picture the scene; your friend has just moved house and they have finished decorating it. They invite you round to show you what they have done with the place; you find that the place looks nice and they have laid out the rooms very well and maintained good colour balances throughout. They then draw your attention to the fine art photography that they have hanging on the wall; you pause a moment as that picture looks vaguely familiar, oh wait you saw it last week in IKEA! More and more people are finding the benefits of utilising their wall spaces with placing fine art photography on them. The main issue that we face is that these pieces of work are not really fine art photographs merely mass produced rip offs.
These companies make a fortune of these prints as even on canvas they will be able to produce them for less than a pound. They will then charge you £10 for that very print. This article is aimed at exploring alternatives such as photo restoration of an old print you have and hanging that proudly above the mantle.
Choosing photo restoration over mass produced drivel
There are alternative ways for you to choose photographs to place on your wall and that is by choosing the work of real photographers. The benefits of doing this are:
You can scroll through limitless amounts of work which allows you to choose a work that inspires you and also suits your house.
You get better value for money as you know that there aren’t as many of artists work in circulation. Depending on the artist you may get an original that nobody else can own or you may have a product that only a handful of people can own (you will usually get an indication i.e. you may get 1/10 written on the fine art photography).
The cost of each work will depend but you will find some up and coming artists will sell their prints at lower costs due to the lack of public awareness of them
You may like an artist and will have the privilege to own a piece of work that has meaning to that artist.
As you can see there are many reason for you to choose fine art photography over the mass produced alternatives, if you would like more information then this can be found by entering the keywords ‘photo restoration’ into an internet search engine.
As a professional photographer, photos are everything to me. In my PC there are literally tens of thousands of photos that are taken by me. I always keep a backup for them in case they are lost in any phenomena. I never lost any photos until one day. I just came back after taking a bunch of photos. It was a casual job but nonetheless very important to me. I decided to start working on my PC. First I would transfer the photos that I had just taken to my PC and then I would filter them and start editing and other things. So I just attached my digital camera through a USB cable to my PC and started transferring photos to the PC. While the transfer was in progress, I accidentally tripped on the USB cable which was the one that I was using to connect my camera to my PC. The USB got detached and there was an error message that transfer was incomplete.
I was not at all worried. I thought nothing would happen. Then I reattached the cable and opened my memory card but there was nothing. I was surprised; I thought somehow the data is already transferred. So I checked on my PC but there were only some of the data, not all of them. I was freaked because they are my work. I did not understand why it happened.
I called a friend who knows about these stuffs and he said that it can happen if the data transferring process is interrupted suddenly or if the storage media is suddenly removed without proper removal process. In my case all of them happened so it is just my luck that I lost the data but he also said that the data (the photos) itself are not lost. They are in there, just the computer doesn’t know where and as the computer doesn’t know about the location of the data, it cannot show it and make it accessible.
He told me of a free photo recovery tool which can recover photos, videos and audios files if they are deleted, lost or corrupted. The name is Photo Recovery by Wondershare. I decided to check it out. I download it to have a try. Turned out it is a great tool which can actually recover all the data that were lost.
I was new to the software but its user interface was really simple for the new users. There were several recovery modes to choose from. I even got to preview the files that were in the memory car to check if I want to recover those data. After using it and being satisfied by its performance, I would like to recommend this tool for you.
Two things to keep in mind though, firstly don’t use a storage media if you intend to get the lost data back. The lost data may get overwritten by new data, so until recovery don’t store into that storage device. Secondly, keep a backup of the data recovery tool. If it gets lost, then that would be really ironic.
