Adventures of Photo Birth Announcements

If you just had a baby, you are probably curious about photo birth announcement and how they should be done. You can save a lot of money by doing these photo birth announcements yourself, rather than taking everything to a professional.

When taking the picture for photo birth announcements, lighting is very important. Be sure to either use flash or set up the lighting in the room just right. With the proper lighting, you can make your baby's eyes sparkle, which adds the perfect touch to any announcement. After you have taken the picture, use free software from online to edit it.

When editing pictures for photo birth announcements, look at the contrast ratio, cropping and color to see what you might need to change. Many programs will let you change the picture to black and white or sepia tones, if that is closer to the look you are wanting.

With this free software, look at how you want to crop your picture. Many birth photos actually look better when they are close ups on the face, or taken from the chest up, instead of full body shots. This is because close ups capture more of the uniqueness and individuality of your baby, which is the whole point of photo birth announcements.

An important aspect of all photo birth announcements is the angle and range of your photo. Typically, you want to stay away from full body photos, and instead do something that is a close up of your baby's face or something from the chest up. The reason for this is that you want to show off all the little character traits and things that make your baby unique.

Rather than black and white photos, or colored photos, if you choose a sepia toned picture of your baby, you might want to avoid a brown background. Contrary to what it may seem, this is hard to match browns between printing and the picture. Overall, you want to avoid matching too much with only one color.

If you ultimately decide to go with a picture in sepia tones, then try to avoid a brown background, as these browns are hard to match. Also, avoid a monochromatic look with only one color in the picture and background. These monochromes make the picture look washed out. If you like to keep things matching, then choose an accent color from the photo and use that in your background for photo birth announcements. Accent colors will tie everything together and create a professional feel.

Black and white photos work well with cool colors, like blue. If you use warmer colors, like yellow, this can create a dingy look and feel, which you want to avoid. When you are making your photo birth announcements, use these tips and you will create a memorable announcement that no one will ever want to take down from the refrigerator.
