Print Photos Creatively Using the Selphy Printer

Do you recall seeing on Instagram a single photo laid out into three, six, or nine squares? This is to create a more dynamic and impactful visual as compared to a one-photo-one-square layout. Similarly, such creative display of your photos can be applied to print using the Selphy printer. Once you have your photos separated into parts, you can then print them individually to create your own art, which can then be hung up on your wall or stuck on your fridge. Try it out on your landscape, street, portrait, travel/holiday photos today! Here are some of the samples shot with Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and printed using the Selphy printer CP1200.
