Transfer Digital Photos from Hard Drive to Real World

Ok, so you have thousands of photos loaded up on your hard drive with no place to go. What's a novice photographer to do? We rounded up some of the best ways to present your photos, with some help from our friends over at Apartment Therapy.

  • Wish Frame Bank: This 6-by-8-inch box plays double duty as both frame and piggy bank. Just slip in your inspirational cash saving photo and start saving.
  • CollageWall: A foolproof way to create that scattered artwork look we all seem to be after. You select the arrangement you'd like based on the templates CW offers. Then upload, size, and select your final layout. CW then sends everything you need, including your uploaded photos printed and mounted onto a rigid foamboard, as well as a paper template to tape onto your wall in order to install your wall pegs properly. Sockets on the back of the foamboard help lock your pictures onto the wall pegs.
  • Mailable Photo Frames: Turn your prints into personal postcards. Slide your photo into the clear plastic sleeve, seal it shut with the self-adhesive flap, stamp it, and put it in the mail! Once it gets to its destination, a fold out cardboard stand lets your beloved sit it on their desk.
  • Canvas Pop: Send in any quality photo and Canvas Pop will help you stretch your fave pic onto canvas.
  • Best Wallpaper: This UK-based printer will turn any photo that is at least 4 megapixels or scanned at 300 dpi into an oversized wallpaper.
  • Rasterbator: This free online tool cuts a single photo into several pieces, which can then be individually printed and puzzled back together on a wall for a cool oversized poster effect. PosteRazor is a similar tool you can use.
  • Wizard Prints: Most printers top out at 11-by-14, which can be a problem if you want to display photographs in a larger format. Wizard Prints offers large poster prints of digital photos as giclee fine art prints, poster board, canvas, vinyl or cloth material. Lauren of Pure Style Home used the company to enlarge a Durer etching on an adhesive-backed fabric.
