Hey, Have You Seen This? CanvasPop

Most of your best photos are on Facebook now, right? Or on your phone?

Then check out CanvasPop, a digital printing company that turns Facebook and Instagram photos into canvas prints big enough to hang on your wall.

Yes, even low-resolution photos.

Here’s the scoop from Mashable:

The web-based print shop has been printing Instagram snapshots for mobile photographers since November. Now, Facebook photos can be printed on canvas.

Since inception, the company has wanted to dive head-first into the world’s largest archive of pictures on Earth. Perfecting the process to turn typically low-resolution Facebook pictures into smooth large-format prints took more than two years, co-founder of CanvasPop Adrian Salamunovic told Mashable.

And how it works:

When a small, low-resolution picture is enlarged, its pixels or the little squares making up the picture, get distorted. CanvasPop created PicturePerfect technology, which is a process called “micro-vectorization.” The technology turns pixels into little lines that can be enlarged to any size without loosing smoothness of the image.

Whatdoya think? Is this a service you’d pay for?

If so, that Mashable story includes a link for a discount that’s available until Sunday, March 18.

    That’s super cool! They’d be smart to extend their technology for other uses too. When I used to work in print, there were millions of times we’d get photos for a project that were beyond small. Being able to upload a photo to something like this (for a fee) and have it corrected and sent back would be incredible.
