Ask yourself this – what is essential in creating your own wall-o-memories? Photos of course!

What’s different about Greeco Venture is that it offers prints in various sizes – including the usual 4R (4″x6″) as well as 4D photos.
What? Don’t know what 4D photos are?
Well… generally, digital cameras take photos in an aspect ratio of 4:3. This means that some portion of the photo will be cropped out when printed in 4R size.
And grandma may end up very unhappy that she appears headless in the photo on your wall:
Alternatively, if you choose to keep grandma’s head on, you may choose to print with a white border on the either side, which would end up looking like this:
Not exactly appealing, is it?
And so… *ta dahh!* This is where 4D photos come in. Its size matches the aspect ratio of 4:3 perfectly so you don’t lose anything from the original picture.
Impressed, are you? Well, hang on to your hats… there’s more to come!
Greeco Venture offers an extremely easy-to-use software, which incidentally downloads very quickly. Uploading photos online is easy with their photoprint software. And they have a step by step guide on their website.
After downloading their software, browse the folder where your photos are stored. Select what you want to print using ‘drag and drop’ or the ‘add’ functions. You can toggle between your photos until you’re happy with your selection.
If your photos have a low pixel count, the software will prompt you with a ‘low quality image’ warning.
Once you’ve added your selected photos, these will appear in the 3rd column for order processing.
A red ‘REMOVE‘ button appears if your photo does not have sufficient resolution. This is your second warning since the first appeared at the point of adding the said photos (refer above). Of course you can choose to proceed despite the warning, but this might result in quality loss being suffered.
The ‘CROP’ button become ‘RED’ when your photo do not match with the selected print size.
You can then click on the ‘Price List’ to double check the pricing before finalising your order.
You can make payment via Maybank2U or credit card.
As for shipping, you can opt for the photos to be shipped to your doorstep or you can opt to pick up from their store in Penang.
Alternatively, if you are located in Penang, you can also choose to upload your photos offline (which is to bring a CD/DVD/thumbdrive to their physical store).
