PHOTO SELECTION

One of the most frequently asked questions is “what photos should I send you?”

This quick guide below will explain how to determine what type of photos that can be used for a portrait.

Keep in mind that the portrait is based directly off of the photo provided.

GOOD REFERENCE PHOTOS - TIPS!

  • Get on your pets level! Eye level works best for portraits.

  • Make sure your pet is sitting (if you can make them stay!)

  • High resolution images work best - the higher the quality the more detail can be seen and then conveyed in the portrait.

  • Please send over the original image file - no screenshots!

  • Use a photo that has good lighting (not too dark / not too bright)

  • See the examples on the right for good examples of reference photos that would work well for a portrait.

BAD REFERENCE PHOTOS

We all know that every pet photo is cute - but sometimes they aren’t the best for a portrait!

You can tell if your photo may not work if it is…

  • blurry.

  • a screenshot of an original photo (reduces quality significantly)

  • too far away form your pet to see details.

  • looking down on your pet.

  • is too dark or light.
