Many budding artists worry that reproductions (or prints as they are normally called) of their artwork will not be a proper representation of their basic original piece. However, with the proper production and preparation, reproductions can brillianyly represent your original artwork, and even offer particular features that original pieces can’t.

If you’re looking for an accurate reproduction of an original painting, the first step is identifying the artist’s style. Once you know the name and style of the piece, you can look for stylistic patterns. Study the signatures and check the palette of the original painting. You can also search the internet for a painting that looks similar. Then you can choose an appropriate copy of the painting. Before you buy it, you should decide what you want it to look like. If it’s a print, you should make sure that it has an original image. Typically, prints have clean edges and are created with a plate, making them easy to replicate.

Once you’ve found the image of the painting, you can begin to make any necessary edits.

First, you can save the image to your computer. Next, open it up in a photo-editing software. A professional will use Adobe Photoshop, but you can use other programs as well. Then, use the basic tools of the software to make minor edits. These may include cropping, rotating, or adjusting colors. If you’re printing from a digital file, you’ll need additional software to reformat it and adjust its color output.
