Product Spotlight: Printing with Bay Photo Lab

Learn how to make a large triptych metal print using both ON1 Photo RAW and the ordering process with Bay Photo Lab. I’ll prep the photos in ON1 and then sends the files off to my favorite lab for metal prints, Bay Photo. I will also cover my tips along the way to get the best output in both ON1 Photo RAW and the Bay Photo ordering process.

Most importantly, our friends at Bay Photo were kind enough to offer an amazing discount on wall displays! This includes their most popular products like MetalPrints, Clusters & Splits, Canvas Wraps, Framed Prints, Maple Wood Prints, Xpozer, and more!

    Just ordered a big metal print. It took me a while to figure out how to get the Bay ROES program to work; you must first set up an account online and then enter your username and password in the program before the software will work (which I think Hudson mentioned in the video, but it didn’t sink in to my brain). Also, the software can only be installed onto your C drive, which might be a problem if your C drive is a relatively small SSD. But once you get the hang of things, the ordering process is pretty straightforward.
    And unlike a lot of printing companies, Bay Photo makes it possible and easy to order a custom-sized print (just scroll down to the bottom of available standard sizes for this option). With the 30% promo, my total (including shipping) for an 18×32 print with the inset mounting frame was a reasonable $138.40 — which is a good deal.
    Note also, that the discount will not show up in the $ total showing in the ROES software or in the order confirmation email. It will be applied, however, when they bill you, and you can see your discounted total if you log into and check your order.

    Great and amazing work, sales needs re-thinking pricing, there are other people who provide the same service.
    Keep on the good work but rethink pricing.

    I have been to scared and frugal to try this. Thanks definitely going to give this a go now.
    Ps have you tried the on1 dust identification preset. Makes it easier to find your dust spots especially when you have some whisky clouds.

    Hi Hudson. Love your videos!
    One thing you didn’t mention is that Bay Photo requests that files be 8 bit per channel and preferably 250 DPI. I think On1 is set to 16 bit, 300 dpi by default. I may be wrong.
    An FYI for anyone needing to know if they are working in 16 bit per channel RGB or 8 bit.
    Go to your menu bar in On1, click Edit>Preferences>Files. You will be able to set your bit rate per channel and dpi there.

      Hey there, they like the files to be Jpeg which will be 8-bit at export. The preferred color space is AdobeRGB, but I’ve never futzed with dpi for them and it’s not been a problem.

    Hi Hudson, been using Bay Photo for years. Have also used them for a triptych, however I wanted to use a 60″ with 20″ on either side. Unfortunately they do not offer anything except equal splits. So I then sized my images to the size I wanted from the original using ON1 and submitted three different images. A little touchy to get them to match perfectly. I wish that Bay Photo would offer a more selective option than equal sizes since they already offer other options for splits.
    Enjoyed your video and especially the hint on eliminating the possibility of ‘all white’ within the image. Would never have thought of that!! I intend to use the 30% offer, nice addition.
    Take Care, Dale
    BTW, I was an instructor in the Navy, not very good. However, I do recognize good instructors and you are excellent!!!

    I just started using Bay Photo. I had trouble with my first print. But the Support team walked me through the issues, and beautifully resolved. They’re not great people, they’re fantastic people, they go out of their way to make sure your print is right. Plus their quality is exceptional. So I look forward to your presentation on sending Bay Photo my big prints.
    Thanks! Robert Andrews
