Photo Guidelines

In order to create the perfect pet portrait for you, it is crucial to provide us in good quality photos that were taken from the right angle. However, taking photos of our pets is not an easy task. Getting them to play, eat and sleep beside you is easier that making them pose for the camera. This is understandable because our pets do not really understand what we are trying to do. Please follow these tips for our designers to deliver better quality art work!

  • Accessories: We will illustrate your pet's accessories so make sure to take off any accessory if you don't want it in the portrait.
  • Color: Use color photos to place an order. Make sure that your pet’s coloring is not distorted in the photos.
  • Lighting: The best photos are taken in well-lighted or natural light settings. Ensure the whole face & neck is visible and not in shadows.
  • Location: We recommend taking the photo in a brightly lit room or outdoors using a smartphone or high quality camera.
  • Pose: Take your pet photo at eye level with your pet. Make sure your pet's entire head is in picture (no ears are out of frame). It works best if your pet is looking directly at the camera or looking away from the camera.
  • Quality: Make sure that your photos are in high resolution and not blurry. Close up photos work best so we can see their unique facial features.
  • We recommend that you upload the biggest and highest resolution photos you have that are formatted as "jpg", "png", or "tiff".
Avoid Bad Lighting

The shadows overpower the pet, and it is hard to catch the characteristics.

Avoid side angles

Only the partial face is shown due to the angle and cut-off foot.

No accessary

Make sure to take off any accessory if you don't want it in the portrait.

Good Photo

The whole face and neck are clearly visible, and the light is good.
