Image Guide

Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect image for your pet portrait!

Just remember, these are only guidelines - we understand that it's not always easy to find the ideal photo (e.g. surprise gift, pet memorial), so feel free to email us the options you have on hand and we'll do our best to give suggestions and make it work.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

    • A good quality photo will be crisper and sharper, resulting in a better portrait.
    • Avoid low-light photos. While they may be cute, they'll be much harder to work with when it comes to drawing a portrait.
    • Try to find a photo that captures your pet's personality. After all, you want their portrait to reflect their unique self!

Examples of good photos


Why these photos are suitable?

    1. Photos taken under natural daylight or a well-lit room (no shadows)

Examples of low quality photos



Why these photos are not suitable?

  1. Photo not taken at eye level (dog is looking up)
