Family travel with flair

How to display travel pictures: the Big App

TweetThere’s nothing quite like travelling to a new and exotic place, capturing it on film or in bytes, adding it to the 1,768 pictures on your computer and never seeing it again. Or you finally get around to putting it up, then reconsider. Witness: When I first took this picture of a vintage petrol pump in Hico, Texas, I really liked it. I had it printed poster size and framed it. Now, several years later, I kinda hate it. But the cost and effort of replacing it with something else has always seemed too onerous. Until now. At BritMums, we are working with Kodak to promote its Big App, which is a great way to cheaply print and display travel pics in large format. You upload your image to the Big App site, its converted into a multi-page PDF, then you print it out on A4 photo paper. (Join our Big App Challenge. I’ts ridiculously easy: you post a picture on your blog that you think would look good wall-sized, include the Challenge badge and add your blog to the Linky. You could win a digital camera or a printer package worth more than £200 including a printer, paper and ink. Check it out now!) So far, I’ve done this with a picture in downtown Austin (I love the music flier and this girl’s rainbow socks) and with a vintage liquor sign in Brenham, Texas (are you seein’ a theme here?). But now I’m hooked and have hauled out a bunch of pictures from years past to see the different looks I can get when they’re wall-sized. So which do you think I ought to use?   Or… Or… Any suggestions?...
