Preparing photos

While we do our best to ensure that photos are reproduced to the highest possible standard, you will need to guide us regarding your specific needs. Here are a few tips that may help.

  • Cropping. Do not crop the photo before giving it to us. Simply let us know what needs to be left in. Please make sure your instructions are clear, particularly in the case of older photos where it can sometimes be difficult to identify the correct person.
  • Scanning. When scanning photos, 300dpi resolution is preferred in order to prevent pixelation. Scanning some types of photos may not produce high quality results; for example, newspaper clippings, low quality printed photos, photos behind glass or in plastic covers. Try to remove photos from albums and frames before scanning.
  • Effects. Let us know which effect you would like us to apply to photos; for example, feathering or deep-etching. This will however be subject to our advice, as some photos are better suited to certain types of effects.
