What do you hate about Digital Photos?

Film cameras became obsolete in the advent of Digital Cameras.  Nowadays almost everyone owns a smartphone and taking digital photos using it is a daily norm.  But there are things that I miss from film cameras namely it's output.  Old Photos taken by film cameras lasts longer and doesn't fade while digital photos usually fade in just a month or two.  
I really enjoy digital cameras but I really hate the quality of its prints.

I don't understand what the OP is trying to say. If you print a digital photo, it will also last as long as the photos taken from film camera, but the question is what kind of machine you are using for printing photos. If you are using a printer that is meant to print documents, then the digital photos will not last long, however, if you are printing photos on a proper photo printing machine your photo will last for many years.

I agree with you. The pictures of the digital camera are not of a good quality. I was applying to be an English online tutor. One of the requirement is to pass a resume with a picture. I went to the photo shop and was taken a shot.

Then when it was printed out. The picture taken was not so good. It was just printed out in a minute. I realized that the pictures before are not like that. They are of good quality.

Storage devices are often corrupted unlike negatives of bygone days. Also there's an issue of such storage devices being obsolete in just 3-5 years time, with how fast technology has been developing. If this happens then a lot of photos would be lost or the owners would have a hard time in transferring it again to a newer storage device.

Definitely agree with you. My brother-in-law loves to take photos with his digital camera and he prints them on printing shops which has proper machines to print photos. Fortunately, his and my sister's wedding photos and our other photos together that were shot for at least 8 years ago are still intact and are of good quality.

I get your point, comparing the outcome of printed photos before and todays technology is obviously differ. Film Photos before were not printed using high end printers. They had this called dark room where they manually printed photos and they used water base chemicals, the processes were much differ than today's ways of printing, nowadays we let machine do the magic. That is why photos today will not last longer unlike photos which was manually printed.

I agree with you. I also don't think that comparing digital print and manual print makes sense. After all, it's already obvious that manual prints will really last long because they take a lot of time to get done whilst digital photos are instant prints where they use inks that will surely fade away after decades.

The quality of photo prints depend on the equipment used to print the photo and the chemicals uses for printing purpose. It does not matter whether the photo being printed was taken from a digital camera or a manual camera. As long as your digital camera is a proper camera (not a cell phone camera), your digital photo prints will come out as good as the ones from film camera.

Agreed sir vinaya. My point is actually the same with yours as I was referring to the way the photos were printed and not about what device was used to take it. But anyways, thanks for the enlightenment because I am probably mistaken about digital prints because I thought all of them will definitely last only for a couple of years but not decades. Turns out it still depends on the equipment and chemicals. Thanks sir.

The paper is also important. There are some papers which are not of good quality to print photos. Others are of poor quality.

I have to disagree because if it's printed by even a quality high end printer and the paper used is high quality photo paper it still won't last 50 years. It would gradually fade unlike output from film which has been developed and treated with chemicals which makes it lasts longer.

If you are using the same printer to print the digital image that you use to print a photo from the film, the quality will be same. In case you are talking about manual printing just like you said the quality might be different. There are various factors involved with the age of printed image. For example black and white image lasts longer than color images, manual printed photo last longer than machine printed photos.

You don't use a printer for old school film development. That's why it's called "Film" in the first place, you don't print it, you develop it.

There's nothing to hate about Digital Photos. They are easier to send to people and are easier to do post-processing on. When it comes to quality, you'll have to check the camera's quality and the materials that you will be using to print it. There's no reason for it to be less durable than old types of printed photos.

Same here, I love taking digital photos because it makes it easier to take pictures any time. Apart from that, you could see the photo taken in just a second. So if it is not good, you know that you can repeat it and don't need to wait for film to be printed. Specially if you are taking pictures of kids. It is hard to find the right timing when everyone is looking at the camera and smiling.

Agreed. I hope the file size could get smaller though. Because if you use a high-quality camera, it would almost always fill the device's storage space. I hope they could make a way to make the file size smaller so we could all take the pictures that we want without worrying about storage space.

I didn't realize the shelf life of digital photos was so limited. I suppose that is why people still buy proper cameras. This is something to bear in mind if you want to make prints for an offline album. I would guess that if you make a calendar online to sell offline or similar, then there is a process that happens that makes those photos useable? So if the photos were printed by an online printer and sent to you, rather than printed out on your own printer, would that take care of the problem? In other words, do they have some special kind of technology the average person printing out at home does not?

“I didn't realize the shelf life of digital photos was so limited.”

It isn’t if you’re printing them with the appropriate quality materials. I have a background in graphic design so I have experience regarding the matter.

Back when I was in college, I owned a Canon PIXMA Pro9000 inkjet printer, which was around $450 at the time so not out of the price range for the average consumer. It was intended specifically for printing photos, to be used with specialized photo paper.

You can’t go and print digital images onto standard office paper and expect them to last, because they’re not intended for that. You have to use photo paper such as Canon’s Photo Paper Plus line of papers, which are obviously way more expensive than office paper but serve a different purpose.

A good quality inkjet printer and paper intended for photos can actually result in photos that last longer than traditional film prints.

edencaga

Yes you are right, I am also a graphic artist so I also have background about printing. You really have to check the settings before you print your photos since there are some options there to choose what kind of print do you want. If it's normal print, photopaper print or special print . And of course the paper that will use in printing since there are quality of photo papers that is not good, you really have to check for good brands and type of paper.

EfficientNinja

Agreed. Aside from the printing process, the source material or the digital picture itself should be of high quality. These two conditions should be met to achieve the highest quality printed photo.

Some people blame the printing service when the real reason for the low quality of the finished product is the captured digital photo itself.

I am not a graphic artist, I don't even have a background in photography or printing but I also think that fading printed photos are not any way related to what camera you used. It is more of the materials you used for printing it. A good combination of the right printer and right paper can produce a lasting copy of a digital photo. This is just base on my experience and observation in printing photos at home.

mark8625

Exactly. It is all about the printing materials at all and not the camera itself. If you will use high quality of paper then it could be lasted for many years but if the materials and ink are low quality,expect the poor quality of the printed photos.

Chinet23

I think so too that it has something to do with the material used especially that what was referred is the quality and longevity of the printed photos not the actual shot. Most digital photos can be printed off through almost all printers and even plain bond paper if you wish. So talking about the prints, I agree that it boils down to the printer and the paper used.

In cameras, we typically speak about resolution in terms of megapixels. While it comes time to print, however, we should reflect onconsideration on pixels in keeping with inch, or PPI. Greater is usually better, however it’s not that easy. Large prints are usually considered from more distances, so you may be capable of escape which a far decrease PPI in the ones instances.

Thank you for this as it makes sense to me. My only experience of printing digital apart from in Boots is my 80 year old Father printing out the pictures put online by the artists in the family. These are never great. Thinking about it, I do have a few photos from boots that have stood the test of time. The main problem for home printing would, I think, be the cost. Coloured inks seem to disapear so very fast and once it is gone, on most printers, the black won't work till you replace them.

“The main problem for home printing would, I think, be the cost.”

You hit the nail on the head with that one. The printer I used may have been of a professional quality, but that wasn’t really the main investment. The ink was what ended up costing me the most.

Since it was intended for printing high quality photos, the printer used over eight different types of ink cartridges; without getting too technically, the standard CMYK and a bunch of other crud in between.

The point is that a pack of those cartridges costed $110, which meant that you could buy a whole new printer after buying just 4 packs of cartridges.

HappyLady

I would like to know why the ink costs so much. It almost seems like some of the printers deliberately make it so that you have to buy a new printer when you run out of ink. There seems to be a reason why black won't print if the other colors run out, that I once read somewhere, but I cannot for the life of me remember what that reason was. You would think some enterprising firm would have come up with a solution to the high cost ink problem by now.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

mdayrit

Companies who sell printers are now promoting a cheaper alternative to buying a new cartridge everytime ran out of ink. You buy bottled ink that you can use to inject or refill your used cartridge. It's almost half the price but expect that quality is not the same.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DenisP

A lot of it actually has to do with the economics of the printing industry.

Most printer companies actually make their printers very cheaply and therefore sell them either at the cost of making the printer or even at a loss. Rarely do printer companies actually profit from their printers.

Because of this system, companies end up making most of their profits from the ink itself. After all, you only buy a printer once every couple of years (or just when it breaks), but ink cartridges are a commodity which constantly needs to be replaced. It would make sense that companies would try to profit off of the item that needs to be bought more often.

Shady business, but what business isn't shady these days?

I do prefer digital photos since it offers a lot of editings that we can fo in order to improve our photos. In what you have said, I believe that the "photo paper and some of the equipment in printing" are the one who is respinsible of the quality of a photo if it can last long. I strongly recommend that you must use a good quality equipments if you want an outstanding results.

But still, digital photos are much more convenient to have. If its only about the print, then try to use a better printer. If you're like me who is living a minimalist lifestyle, you will appreciate everything that is digital, from books to music to photos. You don't have to carry around a lot of things with you.

I agree. I also got this attitude to bring only what's important and needed to where I am going.

You just have to pick the best tool you are going to use since your printed out photo may depende on those things.

The only thing I hate so much about digital photos is the injection of fake appearance in the society today. Just like make up artist are the reason why an individual would have two different personalities in appearance is what digital cameras are doing in the world now. In as much as it makes one look good, the appearance is a fake and it deceives people.

You got that right! Digital photos can easily be manipulated resulting into edited photos. I mean, sure there are times that photos should be edited but most people nowadays would edit their photos so that when posted in social media they would appear so beautiful or handsome but in real life they look the opposite.

The truth is that people will always abuse any technology that is at their disposal and it's extremely being abused in the field of photography with the use of digital cameras and digital studio. Pictures are 100% manipulated until the original appearance is hardly recognized.

A little editing is good, as it helps to clarify the picture quality and make it look good but when it's over done, it makes the person look like a molded icon.

I really agree with you. That is something that I don't like about digital photos. A lot of photos are edited in a way that makes a big difference when it comes to the appearance of the person. There is nothing wrong with editing as long as the changes are minor. But the fact that people manipulate photos just to create a very good look and impress the world is not a good idea for me.

You are so right about that. I completely forgot editing and enhancement regarding one's appearance on how we look digitally is a drawback in today's modern society. We are often insecure about how others physically see us because we are too afraid to be judged with how we look like on social media. There are also instances where edited photos are used in evil ways, like destroying someone else's image and reputation which is downright wrong. I guess there are just some people out there who do have a lot of spare time in their lives to do such things.

What I don't like about digital photos, it is hard to see which filtered and natural, which is edited and original and which is true and fake. Since with the help of photo editors, it is now easy to edit a photo and print out a fake photo. Unlike filmed photos that seems to be impossible to be edited. But I have to disagree with the life span you mentioned about printed digital photos. It really depends on the material you used for printing. It'll really make your photo fade easier if your using a low cost of ink and paper to print them. Good thing about filmed photos is you can keep a raw hard copy of photos you have taken unlike digital photos that you have to back it up so that in case of a system failure you can still restore it.

What I hate about digital photos is that they fade when exposed to sunlight. I can't hang them around in a room and even when you put them in a picture frame, they'll fade and turn yellow over time. The only way you can save their colors is through photo albums but even that is not a sure way to save them from fading.

Digital photos are more budget friendly in my opinion. I have experienced using film to take photos. You can buy them in varying number of shots. Let say you bought 24 shots film, if you're not really that good in taking photos, you'll find half of that film wasted. Not all the shots are good when printed. Some can be blurred, you'll find some photos where someone's eye is closed because of your timing, and a lot more. Unlike with digital photos, you can choose the photos you print. It is readily available to check the result in a second after you press the shutter. No film wasted. You can take photos as many as you can.

I think in terms of durability and quality I would prefer the old films before since it has a longer life duration than the digital photos. The only thing that attracts me with the digital photos are the convenience and the beauty that we can see every time we will print it. It is great to watch because it is colorful and very clear unlike in the old films that they are dull to see at some point and it is very hard and expensive to have them. We can have as much as printed copies we want at digital since it is only very cheap and affordable compare to the old films that are too expensive to have.

I don't have any problem with digital photos. I actually find it good that we have improved our technology and innovated digital cameras which make photography easier. It's good to look back to the time when film cameras were used by people - it surely was a beautiful period of time, but we should also move forward and acknowledge the advantages of our current, much more convenient technology. If I were to find anything bad from the invention of digital cameras, I guess it would be the fact that each photo taken is less special now compared to the olden days, where people have to buy film rolls and pictures are immediately printed on the film with no undo or delete option.

I hate nothing about digital photos. The issue is not the quality of the photos but the paper used to print them. Remember in old days, it was not easier to find fake things like the today.

Papers vary in quality, but most people running businesses are going after cheap because quality comes at a higher price. Just get quality printing papers yourself and your photos will not fade easily.

I think there's no wrong on having a flaw cause that's making you a human.Also in capturing great scenery. I think they lose the essence of capturing it by just editing it. Whats the point of waiting and traveling to see a great scenery when you can see and just edit at your own home.

I feel you. It seems that professional photographers are the most passionate when it comes to quality. They really know their stuff. They'd rather choose things carefully than settle for instant printed copies.

It is true. Professional photographers know what they should need to do to make the quality of pictures lasts longer.

It's only natural for them to be picky. What use would their amazing photographs be if they aren't well preserved as time went by? This is why they're only after the best materials for their printed copies.

Right. I mean why they don't they try to communicate and be partners with Kodak so they get to know and they share the method on how they can make the picture last for years just how photos we used to have before from our younger years.

Does Kodak still exists? Its been a while since I heard about Kodak. I remember when I was young we bought film in Kodak and he used to develop the photos there.

I think so. You can still see it on Google. It's probably a good brand since many have good memories with it. There's even a news regarding Ektachrome film being revived soon.
