The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not. I transferred over my past catalogs of photos over to Lightroom Classic and eagerly began opening up some of my favorite photos.

After a day it was decided it needed to be changed. I contacted Shutterfly to see what our options were for placing a new order with different text. I was expecting, since the error was fully on our end and was up front with that while talking with the CS agent, that we would have to place a new order and pay the same prices again. Or that maybe Shutterfly throws us a bone and gives us a percentage discount off the final price. I was in no way prepared for Shutterfly to tell us that they would give us a credit for the same number of cards originally ordered and rush deliver the new order of cards at no charge. And we could keep the original batch. Thanks a lot, +Shutterfly!
