Tips for selecting an image
- Image files need to be in either jpeg, gif or png formats, and cannot exceed 4 megabytes
- Images must be at least 480 x 480 in size
- Images should be a minimum of 1024x786 pixels for best picture quality
- Small images will reproduce poorly; for best results and greater image clarity, use larger images with higher resolutions
- The time your image takes to upload depends on your Internet connection speed; the larger the image, the longer it will take to upload
- Keep in mind, you’ll have the opportunity to make some adjustments to the appearance of your image in the card design page
- If you increase the scale of your image too much, it may print poorly if you have a smaller file size
