    HT0762 - Print with Margins I used to print my images in the wet darkroom as close to the edge of the paper as I could. This allowed me to make larger images. But I've discovered that a lot of those images have damaged or bent corners just from handling. Now I leave a generous margin between the edge of the paper and the image content — just to be safe and help avoid damage to the image itself.

    HT0761 - Print Size and Archivability An odd lesson from my recent downsizing was the challenge of archiving large prints. I realized that the larger the print, the more challenging it was to keep it, to store it, to protect it, to find a home for it. The larger the print, the more of a challenge and problem it was to deal with in my downsizing project.
