Choosing A Custom Image - Help

Please note, it is your responsibility to make sure that your photo follows the guidelines below. The custom kit result greatly depends on the image provided.
 
Please avoide shadows in the photo you submit as it can alter the colours used in the paintings.
 
 
High-resolution images work best. Ideally 1000x1000 pixels or higher. If the photo you'd like to paint is low resolution and you don't have any other picture, that's okay. We can do it! However, the best color accuracy and definition come from HD photos!



Pick the right size! If your image is square, 16x16in or 20x20in will do great. If your photo is rectangular, 16x20in and similar will fit perfectly. Not sure about the size? Get in touch. We can crop the image and adjust it for you!

For portraits, make sure that the faces are closer to the camera! This way, it will be easier to capture face traits. Otherwise, faces will be less detailed or blurry. Ideally, family pictures should have no more than 3-4 people to ensure good results. As a rule of thumb, the subject/s of the photo should take at least 70% of the image.

For complex photos, choose a bigger canvas size. A 24x32'' canvas can fit more lines and numbers than a 12x16'' one! We can do your photo in any size, but for detailed pictures, a larger canvas will turn out better. For family pictures and portraits, a minimum size of 16x20" is recommended. If you pick the smallest 12x16" canvas, the amount of detail will be reduced accordingly.

Pick a photo with neutral lighting. Intense background light can blurry details and make them hard to capture! Avoid shadows as much as possible. Ideally, the light should come from the camera angle. Don't use dark pictures as this may affect the colors.
