Cropping images using Photoshop

Our quick guide helps you use the tools in Photoshop to crop and save your file for standard paper formats.

If you would rather not crop your image to fit, then take a look at our guide on how to add borders.

You can use the settings in the crop tool in Photoshop to crop your image to the paper size you require. For example, 10 x 8 inches.

You can set the exact size and resolution of your image (see the technical help calculator for the exact resolution of each paper type and size) and use the crop tool to select the area you want to print.

Once you are happy with your new image click enter and remember to save the file with a new name using save > save as.

Photo Printing

Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.

Fine Art Giclee printing

While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.

Black & White printing

We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.

Mounting your prints

After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
