Resolution quality from most digital cameras can vary. For best results, use a camera that is at least 3 megapixels and take your photo at the highest setting. We accept JPG format please convert any other format to this format. For more information on cameras megapixels please go to our "Megapixels Explained" section.
Keep in mind, the larger the file, the larger the print. If you are starting with a physical photograph or piece of art, scan at 300ppi resolution at the desired size for best results.
Digital art and photography does not generally need proofing. With other artwork, recommend the proofing process because it provides you, the artist, confidence with the process and we can guarantee the color quality.
Digitizing a physical piece of art: Two options are available, photograph or scan your work. If you don't have a scanner, take it to your local copy store, for smaller images or seek out a local image drum scanner service for larger detailed work and have it scanned. We recommend photographing your work because it is much more accessible for works larger than 8.5”x14”. For the do-it-yourself artist, sign up for our newsletter and receive a free article about how to photograph your artwork.
Then you can upload the image from your computer with confidence.
