Getting a good photo is easy! Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect. We want to help you take the highest quality photo so we can give you the highest quality artwork. Please follow these easy guidelines and look at the examples below:
The best photos will have even lighting with no harsh shadows or bright spots. The face fills most of the frame, and the details of the animal’s face are clear. Photos are in focus.
Your pet photo (while he or she is sitting or standing only) should be a close up of your pet’s face (eye level- looking at the camera) and neck (ears in frame) Please don’t send blurry pictures, images that are too dark or photos taken from a distance.
Avoid placing your pet in a spot inside that has direct sunlight, or outside under a tree, which can result in harsh shadows and bright spots.
- Resolution is key! Please upload the highest resolution photo possible. Do not use images taken from Facebook, Instagram or other social media.
- Please send the unedited, original photo without any filters.
- Do not use your camera’s flash, as it can discolor your pet’s eyes.
- If using an iPhone, do not use portrait mode as it can blur parts of the photo, and get close to your pet to take the photo, rather than using the zoom feature.
A good photo will result in an amazing piece of art for you to cherish for a lifetime!
If you are unsure about a photo, please feel free to email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you our feedback.
