Create an ancestral gallery with canvas art

An ancestral gallery is based on old
Tip: Photographers usually have the option of enlarging smaller images analogously.
Now colour the picture using a photo editing program. This takes some practice and at first you will encounter some failures.
Notes on printing analog images
Pay attention to the formats of old photo prints, because digital photography and photo printing work with different sizes than is usual with analog images.
Dimensions of analog images
|Movie||Size Negative||Common image formats|
|35mm film||24x36mm||9x13 cm|
|Quarter Plate||70x83mm||7x8 cm|
Photo printing dimensions
|Description||Size in cmv||Hint|
|3 : 2||30x20 to 150x100||portraits; primarily memories such as ancestral gallery, wedding pictures|
|4 : 3||40x30 to 160x120||group pictures; mostly memories|

|Panoramic 4:1||80x20 to 160x40||Landscape pictures: mainly serve as room decoration|
