Create your glossy photo prints

What is a glossy photo print?

When you think of photographs you automatically think of a shiny, glossy print. That’s because it’s the most common finish with developed photographs. As you’d expect, they get their name from a glossy layer being applied over the image, creating a shiny and reflective finish. The reason a lot of people go with this choice for their Photobox photo prints is because the gloss layer accentuates the colour intensity and sharpness, giving the photographs a more luxurious finish.

How to create a glossy photo print

To create a high gloss photo print, all you need you to do is head to the Photo Print section of the Photobox website and select whether you’d like premium, large premium or retro prints. At the next screen you’ll be prompted to upload your photo selection. If you decide that you’d like to change the size of your photos once they’re uploaded then that’s absolutely fine – you can choose a size for each image from the drop down box.

Ordering your glossy photo print

Now your photos are uploaded and you’ve chosen the size you want, you’re ready to turn them into glossy photo prints. Simply head to the ‘Extras’ button on the top right of the screen where you’ll be able to click on the glossy option. Now you’re good to go. That’s all there is to it! All you need to do now is click to order your gloss finish prints online and you’ll be taken through to checkout.
