Frequently Asked Questions
Uploading Your Photo(s)
1. What kind of file format is required?
Our website accepts photos uploaded in the following format: JPEG, PDF, EPS, GIF, BMP, PNG or TIFF. You will be able to view if your file is in the correct format by viewing the file name for example: Molly.jpeg, Molly.eps, Molly.pdf, Molly.gif etc
2. What kind of picture resolution is required?
A resolution of 200-300 dpi for the photo will result in a high quality card being produced. The average digital picture is approximately 500KB or above and this will result in a high quality printed card. To check the type and size of your file copy your picture to your PC desktop and right click on your image and click on "Properties" at the end of the list. Under the "General" tab you are able to view the type and size of your file.
3. Checking Picture Quality
If you have uploaded a high resolution picture you will be able to zoom into the uploaded picture and position it correctly within the red box. If you are restricted by the zoom feature and unable to position your picture correctly the image you have uploaded is low resolution and the print quality of the picture will be poor. We recommend you chose a better quality picture for your card. NB: the higher the resolution of the image the greater the flexibility of the zoom feature. If you want to check the quality of your picture you can also place the image on your desktop and zoom into around 200%. If the image remains sharp and in focus the print quality will be good. If the image appears pixelated or blurred then we would recommend selecting an alternative picture to use.
4. What kind of picture works best?
To get great photos it is important to capture them in the right light. If you are taking photos outside the best time of day is to do this early in the morning in partial shade or early in the evening. If you are taking pictures inside try to use natural light. Window light is great and diffused lighting provides for a softer feel. Try to avoid taking pictures with the flash. Flash can often wash out colours and babies in particular are sensitive to bright light. Also, try to avoid distracting backgrounds and colour. Neutral backgrounds or a neutral rug often provide the best photo cards.
