    Default duplicate photos..

    Hi guys,

    told a photo from a "studio" and we purchased it while in BKK with my family and my sis would like to have 1 of the same photo.
    how do i go about duplicating the same photo and have it print out..?

    How about asking the studio to send you a second copy? Without going into legal realms, it's the only thing that's fair and reasonable.

    Use a flat bed scanner

    It is not right to make copies from other photographer's work even though you have paid for the finished product but not their intellectual property.
    but for this case is more like a novelty item than a portrait work......

    Yes, just use a flatbed scanner is the most cost effective,
    however, whatever methods you use, degradation of the quality is inevitable for making duplicate copy,
    if you have a poor quality original, you decide whether it is worth the time, efforts and costs to reproduce it.

    to be honest... the quality is really bad....
    will give the "flatbed" a try..
    thanks for the advise!

    I often shoot pictures of pictures and then go to a photo kiosk and print them. Usually for the same type of reason you describe. Not the greatest method but for many instances it is good enough. Haven't used my scanner in years but did frequently once upon a time.
