Image Issues

I received an error saying that there was a problem with my image. What happened?

It is likely that your image does not meet the minimum requirements for printing. This is probably because it was either taken on a camera that does not have enough megapixels, it was taken on a camera with the settings turned down, or the original file has been modified and the quality decreased. For best results, take your future photos at the highest resolution your camera will allow.

Minimum resolution requirements for our most popular sizes:

8" x 10" 75 600 x 750 250 2000 x 2500
11" x 14" 75 825 x 1050 250 2750 x 3500
16" x 20" 75 1200 x 1500 250 4000 x 5000
16" x 24" 75 1200 x 1800 250 4000 x 6000
18" x 24" 75 1350 x 1800 250 4500 x 6000
20" x 30" 75 1500 x 2250 250 5000 x 7000
24" x 32" 75 1800 x 2400 250 6000 x 8000
24" x 36" 75 1800 x 2700 250 6000 x 9000

For Gallery Wrap canvas, the minimum resolution required in more similar to the requirements for one size larger as the photo has to wrap around the edges of the canvas. For example, when creating an 8x10 Gallery Wrap Canvas use the above guidelines for 11x14 instead. For all other products the above requirements are accurate.

I received a warning saying "This size is not recommended for your image." What are my options?

We want you to be exceedingly happy with the quality of your photos to art product, so we limit the sizes at which you can print to those that will look the best. We warn you if we think there is a possibility that based on what we know about the image it might print with the high quality we want to deliver. You can still proceed, and the image when printed may come out just fine, but we want to be sure you're satisfied, so we're being cautious for some of the larger sizes where the quality of your image could affect the results.

Size Selection

Why don't I see all available sizes in the size drop down?

In an effort to maintain the aspect ratio of the photo you uploaded, we filter available sizes based on the aspect ratio or your photo. In all instances, regardless of photo aspect ratio, we also include 8x10 and 11x14, due to their popularity. To select an alternative size that is based on a different aspect ratio, simply select "See More Sizes" from the Finished Size drop down menu.

If you do not see "See More Sizes" as an option, it means that the resolution of your photo is insufficient to print in a larger size that those already shown in the drop down menu.


Take note: Your image will be cropped to fit the dimensions of the size you choose.

How do I reposition or crop my photo?

If the size you have selected does not match the aspect ratio of your photo, then you can reposition your photo image. Click on "Change Print Area" and a module will open that will allow you to adjust what part of your photo is included in the printable area. We only allow for vertical adjustments on portrait photos and horizontal adjustments on landscape photos. For more complex cropping capabilities we suggest you use a photo editing tool prior to uploading your image to our Photos to Art service. If the "Change Print Area" button is not enabled, it means that the selected size exactly matches the aspect ratio of your photo and that the entire image is being shown in the printable area. Therefore there is no "extra" photo to crop out.
