  • HP Indigo coming to Pikto

    0

    We are excited to announce that Pikto will kick off 2014 with a new installation of a a state of the art HP Indigo press. The HP Indigo will allow us to offer the highest definition, smoothest and most colorful printing available in a digital press.  The HP Indigo will be used  mainly for Photobooks and Greeting cards but will also allow us to offer unique photo products such as magnets, extra thick matt card stocks, synthetics and special inks such as Pantone colors.

    Due to the complexity of installing this advanced press, we expect turnaround times of Photobooks, Cards and Calendars to be affected for a limited time. Any orders for these products received between January 9th and 20th, 2014 will have an additional 5-7 business days of production added to the requested service times. Please make a note and give yourself some extra time for these orders. All other products including Photo Prints and Mounting will have normal turnaround times.

    Thank you for your patience during this transition. We are sure that you will share our excitement about our new HP Indigo when you see the results!

  • 2013 Top Pick Winner announced

    0

    Pikto is pleased to announce Michal Solarski as the winner of Pikto Top Pick Contest 2013. His work from the project Hungarian Sea will be on view at the Pikto Gallery in March 1- April 30, 2014. The panel of this year’s  judges included Carol LeFlufy, principal at the Eye Forward Agency, Gina Martin, Photographer Representative  from the National Geographic Creative and Heather Westfall, Curator of the Pikto Gallery.

    Born and raised in Poland, Michal Solarski currently lives and works in London, UK. Using documentary approach in his artistic practice, Michal explores the space where memory meets the present moment. Lake Balaton, also called the Hungarian Sea, was an annual summer holiday tradition for the photographer’s family. The thread of experiences associated with the Lake became an important part of Michal’s and his sister’s childhood. For the Hungarian Sea Project, the photographer revisits the place of his memories, this time grown-up and alone, to find it almost unchanged, searching for himself and his family in the working class vacationers.

    There is not much to distract the viewer’s eye, we are confronted by the often direct look of the photographed person and/or their body. The light in Michal’s photographs feels cold from the blue of the water and often overcast sky, the figures are positioned orderly within the space contained by the beach, the room, the residencies by the Sea.

    Michal used Kodak Portra VC film (no longer available) to achieve rich vivid colour. “This is how I remember the place. In comparison to the gloomy and almost monochromatically grey communistic Poland it appeared to me as bright and extremely colorful place”.

    0

    Since the submissions for the Top Pick 2013 contest have begun, we've had an incredible amount of entries added to the Pikto Online Gallery. With so many catching our eye, we've decided to relaunch our weekly ritual of bringing our favourites to your attention through our Pick of the Week. This week's choice struck us instantaneously with its incredible amount of depth. Jason Andrew's series Black Diamonds follows a group of primarily Nigerian men who fell victim to a human trafficking ploy targeting football players throughout Africa. We had a chance to sit down and ask the artist a few questions about the hard-hitting series and his experiences in Turkey. Read on for our exclusive interview and make sure to take a look at Jason Andrew's Pikto gallery to share your own opinion on the series, as well as rate and comment on your favourite entries. Each year the two most popular submissions receive $500 in online gift certificates as well as a vote from the panel, so make sure that your voice is heard! If you have yet to enter this years Top Pick contest, make sure you submit your entry before November 1st at 11:59PM EST. Continue Reading Readmore

  • How to Get Your Photos from iPhone and Android to Your PC or Mac

    0

    In order to print Instagrams or other photos taken on your mobile devices, you must first have them accessible on your PC or Mac computer, ideally at the highest resolution that your phone provides.

    Earlier in the year, we created a video to walk you through using your Instagram photos on our iPad Pikto ROES application . Here are a few other ways to get your mobile memories print-ready:

     

    From iPhone to iPad for print via Pikto iPad ROES:

    1) On your iPhone, find your 'Settings' app and open the preferences for 'Photos & Camera'.

    2) At the top, simply swipe the 'Photo Stream' option to ON.

    3) You will have to sign into your Apple ID to have your photos sync to all your devices. Keep in mind photos will only synced when you are logged into a WiFi connection.

    4) All new photos taken will be synced between your devices through PhotoStream.

    Note: To get all old photos currently stored in your camera roll from your iPhone or Android to the iPad,  you'll first have to transfer them to your computer. Once you have them in a folder on your computer, you'll be able to transfer the entire folder of photos to your iPad following these steps:

    1)  Connect your iPad to your computer, open iTunes and select your device.

    2) Click on the 'Photos' tab and select the option to 'Sync Photos from'. Click 'Choose Folder...' and find the folder full of your images you downloaded from your iPhone or Android.

    3) Click 'Apply' in iTunes to start the sync process. Once finished, your folder of images should appear on your iPad under the 'Photos' app.

     

    From iPhone or Android to Mac:

    1) Connect your iPhone or Android device to your Mac using the provided USB cable.

    2) Ignore any automatic syncing options from iPhoto or iTunes.

    3) In your Applications folder, find the Image Capture software.

    4) Select the images you wish to transfer from your USB device. Choose a folder to save your files into. If you just want to select a few, highlight your files and click 'Import'. Should you wish to import all your images (including the ones you have not selected), click 'Import All'.

     

    From Android to PC:

    1) Connect your phone to your PC using the provided USB cable.

    2) On your phone, hold and drag the notification bar, and tab the USB icon.

    3) Tap 'Turn on USB storage' and then 'OK'.

    4) Your phone should now be listed as a removable drive on your PC.

    5) Select and open this removable drive, to find the folder labeled 'DCIM' and again open it to find the folder labeled 'Camera'.

    6) Copy the photos from this folder to any folder on your computer.

     

    From iPhone to PC (Windows Vista or 7):

    1) Connect your iPhone to your PC using the provided USB cable.

    2) Choose Start -> Computer and select your devices logo, click Import Photos and Video

    3) By default, all photos will be imported into the 'My Pictures' folder. Should you wish to change this, you can choose your own folder under the 'Import Settings' link.

    4) Click Import and wait for the download to finish. Once all photos have been downloaded, Windows Picture Gallery will open showing the most recently imported photos.

     

    From iPhone to PC (Windows XP):

    1) Connect your iPhone to your PC using the provided USB cable. Windows should automatically open the Scanner and Camera Wizard.

    2) Choose the photos and videos you want to copy. You can also change their names or select which folder to save them to at this point. Click Next.

    3) Wait for the images to finish downloading. The Windows Wizard will show you the amount of images downloaded as well as a link to access the images on your computer.
