What could cause the Nikon D7500 display to look like a cartoon/colour blocking?

It's hard to diagnose without a picture of the problem, but one possibility comes to mind. Make sure that you don't have the "Photo Illustration" special effect turned on (p 64 in the manual)...

Touch Screens for editing photos

This really depends on what you mean by "touch screen" and "image editing" as well as your own workflow and efficiency. I've been a Photoshop user for more than 20 years. I could use a Cintiq or ...

How do I choose a frame for a print?

It's purely a matter of opinion, unfortunately. My own suggestion would be that matted prints always look better than simply framed prints, and some more so with a double mat. I typically go with ...

Is it possible to reduce reflections of picture frame (from human-viewer perspective)?
