How to Pick a Good Photo?
1 - Image resolution/quality
The quality of your photo will greatly affect your custom painting result. The sharper your image is, the better!
➡️ You can also check the image properties on your mobile or desktop. The higher more pixels, the better. Try to provide a photo with at least 1000x1000 pixels. If you don't know how to check your image resolution, here's a quick guide to do so on Windows and Mac.
2 - Distance from the camera
3 - Pick a photo with neutral lighting
➡️ Good lighting. Choose images where the light is uniform across the subjects.
➡️ NO instense background light. The light should always come from the camera angle.
➡️ NO shadows on the skin. Shadows can completely change the color palette, creating dark patches.
➡️ NO color filters! The light should be completely natural. Rephrase from using tints such as yellow, blue, purple or green, which are very popular in social media or in some photography apps.
4 - Pick the right canvas size
