  • How to Get the Best Out of the Photos on Your Phone

    We live in an age of pictures, and most of us will take pictures on our phones almost every single day. Is it any wonder then that our phones have the power to create professional-level photos at the touch of a button? Using your phone to edit photos has never been easier, and so we’ve got some of our best top tips to help you.

    1. Start off Right

    Even though this list is focusing on after the photos have been taken, editing your photos is a lot easier when you have a good foundation. Take a look at our guide to taking the best photos on your phone here, before you start to shoot.

    1. Have a good editing app

    Apps are the key to editing your photos successfully and there are thousands of them available to download. If you’re wondering which the best ones for you are then here’s our top three:

    Adobe Photoshop Express -If we are looking at the picks for the best photo editing apps for your phone then we can’t go wrong with the masters of photo editing, and it’s free! Adobe have released streamlined, easy-to-use versions of their software for phones which allow you to do all the photo edits you’ll need, like fixing red eye, blemishes, and working with professional filters, all with a few taps of your finger. This free app is sure to dazzle!

    Adobe Lightroom CC -Lightroom is truly the Ying to Photoshop’s Yang. The two apps complement each other to create the perfect mobile editing experience. Lightroom allows you to experiment freely with colour, exposure, and tone to get the right feeling for the picture that you took. Like with Photoshop Express, all of this is made accessible with a user-friendly layout and a very appealing free version of the app.

    1. Showcase your pictures

    Even the best pictures can only look so good on a small phone screen. Giving your photos a physical space in the world can really highlight the importance of them, whether it is a stunning landscape, or a treasured memory.

    One of the best options for showcasing pictures is a canvas. Simply upload your photos to our bespoke canvases and your high-quality print will showcase your photography skills to the world! Get in touch today to find out more.

  • Glam House Decorating Tips

    Having a home with glam décor is the essence of luxury. Even the smallest of glimmering details can make your house feel fit for a queen and so we’ve gathered some of our best tips to inspire you when glamming up your home.





    1. Go with a neutral base

    The bases of your home are the large pieces in the space, like your sofa, cabinet, bed or rug. Choosing to have these pieces in neutral colours makes your home feel grander and more spacious and also allows for any other colours you do have in your home to pop. Neutral furniture is also commonly cheaper than others as there’s more abundance of it.

    1. Add mirrors

    Adding mirrors to your home not only adds a touch of class and glamour to your home, but it also makes the interior look much more spacious. You don’t just have to stop at mirrors on the walls though, why not add a mirrored cabinet or coffee table to your home? This will add depth and act as a stunning centre piece of a room.

    1. Drape faux fur throws

    Nothing adds class like a faux fur throw does! Simply drape giant throws over sofas, chairs and beds for instant definition to a room. You can grab yourself inexpensive faux furs in many high street shops, yet they will still look expensive and glamorous when positioned right in your home.

    1. Add metallic accents

    Any decorative accents in your home like cushions, throws as we mentioned above, or rugs should be metallic in colour. This is because white, bright, silver tones will highlight the room, especially with the mirrored furniture. You should always take consideration into your décor as well as your furniture when reinventing the look of your home.

    1. Display art

    As well as mirrors on your wall, you should also display different pieces of art, as these can really add a touch of colour and sparkle to your walls. Cursive font quotes always look great on the walls too as they match the vibe of the room too. You can even find them in metallic colours to match your furnishings!

    We have a whole range of quote canvases which look perfect in any glam home. You can also choose the colours you want so they’ll match your interior perfectly. Click here to see our full range or get in touch today to create your very own bespoke canvas.

  • Our Top Tips for Creating a Gallery Wall

    A gallery wall can be a work of art in a home if it is assembled correctly. Not only does it add depth, but it also makes the interior of your home look much more interesting as it showcases your personality. A gallery wall can be as creative as you like, so long as you put in an appropriate amount of thought and effort. That’s why we’ve gathered a step by step guide to help you:

    1. Find the right wall

    If you’re looking to create a gallery wall, then you need to find a huge empty wall within your home. We think they look especially great when near to a fire place, above a bed or sofa or even in a child’s bedroom or nursery. They are perfect for a house of any size as you can choose how big you want to scale your art.

    1. Choose your photos

    When it comes to choosing the correct photos, you need to make sure you have a theme in mind for the wall as a whole. Some people prefer to have their wall quite uniform with a clear colour scheme throughout whereas other like the creativity of having their prints with a more diverse theme. You’ll also need to have a rough idea of how many prints you want too.

    1. Plan it first

    The worst thing you can do is go straight to the wall once you’ve received your prints, as if you place it in the wrong position or it doesn’t look quite right, you’ll be left with lots of little holes in the walls. Use the floor space to plan where your images are going to go and in what order, almost like a jigsaw puzzle!

    1. Be daring

    Don’t think that you have to follow strict guidelines or rules when it comes to your gallery wall, as we mentioned above it’s your chance to be creative and fill the space how you like. Don’t assume that central is best, because it’s a gallery and the prints are all positioned differently, it may look better to have them further to one side.

    1. Keep it going!

    Once you have all your prints done and hung, don’t limit yourself by stopping there. The best part about a gallery wall is that if you’ve got the wall space, your gallery will just keep growing and growing as you want it. You can switch up the prints you have on there or the frames too. There’re no limitations.

    If you’re thinking of incorporating a gallery wall into your home, then here at Posh Canvas we offer bespoke canvases, tailored to you. Whether it be a quote or a photo, we have what you need so get in touch today.

  • Sensational Seasonal Snaps

    In winter, you can really capture some beautiful photography shots, but only if you know how to use the season to your full advantage. When it comes to braving the winter weather outside, you need to be prepared. That’s why we’ve gathered some of our best tips to help you make the most of the colder weather.

    Dress for the occasion

    If you’re going outside and taking pictures during the winter, you’re going to want to be dressed appropriately. Ensure you have warm boots and a good pair of gloves that won’t prevent your fingers from hitting that camera button! We may be far from summer weather, but another top tip is to take a pair of sunglasses as even though it is winter, the sun can still be incredibly bright!

    Keep your camera cool

    Wrapping your camera up inside your coat may seem like a safety measure, but it certainly isn’t. When you use your camera in the cool weather after it has been held in a warm place, the lens will instantly fog up and create potentially damaging condensation. Aside from damaging your camera, you also don’t want a prime shot being missed because a layer of fog on the lens!

    Keep your batteries warm

    Now it may sound silly to have your camera cold and your batteries warm, but batteries actually drain faster in cooler temperatures. To help solve this problem, we suggest putting a set of spare batteries into your coat pocket where they will keep warm from your body heat.

    Don’t delete

    Although it can be tempting to delete images when you’re stood in the field and your memory has reached full capacity, you should always wait until you’ve gotten home to delete them. Images may look bad whilst you’re looking on your camera screen but once they’ve been enlarged and looked at properly, you’ll realise you have some great shots or part of an image can be cropped. Simply take along some extra memory cards if you’re running out of storage space.

    Once you’ve captured that stunning shot, don’t forget to get it printed onto a canvas to display in your home. Not only will it make for a great seasonal addition to your walls, but it will also mean that you can show off your talents. Click here to order your canvas today.

  • Making Magical Memories

    Christmas is the most magical time of the year not just for children, but everybody as we grow older and realise the true meaning of Christmas. One thing that is especially important during this festive season is making everlasting memories and photographing them too.

    Include family and friends

    Some of the best memories are created when you have everybody you love around you, so be sure to spend as much time with family and friends as you can during this festive season. Simple things like going for wintery walks with grandparents or visiting Christmas markets with friends can bring lots of fun and quality time with the people dearest to you.

    Sit back and relax

    This special season only comes around once a year, so make the most of it. Although you should have lots of fun filled events planned, remember to leave spare time to relax, sit back and appreciate what you have around you. It is only then, that you will be able to enjoy the moment much more without having to worry about the big to-do list and manic moments.

    Enjoy Christmas traditions

    Each family has their own traditions at this time of year, and it’s important that these are continued where possible. They don’t have to be grand, they could be little traditions like Christmas Eve pyjamas, putting up Christmas lights or baking together. It’s these that are the most memorable as your family grows together.

    Have your camera ready

    Taking photos during this season is incredibly important in order to remember those special moments in years to come. It’s also great fun if you photograph one of the above traditions each year, as you can see how times have changed when you look back. Being with family so much during this season means you have the perfect opportunity to capture some gorgeous family shots.

    However you choose to make memories this season, make sure you have lots of photos to show this. We have a wide range of gorgeous Christmas canvases available, or alternatively you could upload one of your photos and have it displayed in your home.
