Photo Prints Image Requirements, Aspect Ratio & Colour Profiling
Checking your Image Quality
When you upload your photos through our online image uploader, the built-in photo processor utilizes a quality score check mechanism which compares the resolution of your digital photo and chosen print size. If the image resolution is low, a notification will immediately appear. In such cases we highly recommend that you choose a smaller print size.
When an a smaller size is chosen and the “low resolution” notification disappears, our system considers your image to be of adequate quality for the chosen print size. In the event that we do receive an image that does not meet our high quality standards, our customer care team will contact you to get obtain a higher resolution copy or alternative image prior to proceeding to production.
If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact us.
What is the maximum file size I should upload?
You can upload files up to 512 MB. Yes that’s huge! Basically, even if each of your photos were 120 megapixels you still would have lots of space per upload. Before uploading verifying that you are indeed uploading a JPEG as your transfer time will be shortened greatly. If you are transferring a large TIFF file, please be aware that transfer times are dependent on your internet connection speed, so it could a little while to complete uploading.
If you have encounter difficulties uploading your photos, please contact us for assistance.
Aspect Ratios and how it affects your photo cropping
When we look at photograph’s aspect ratio, we are comparing the width value to the height. So if we were measuring a 4 x 6 image, the aspect ratio would be 3:2 because longest side is 1.5 times as long as the short side.
Now let’s say you wanted this printed in an 8 x 10 format. This could be done but the photo would have to be cropped because there is an aspect ratio mismatch. Remember a 4 x6 has a ratio of 3:2 and an 8 x 10 has 5:4. To avoid any form of cropping you would have to change the print size to an 8 x 12 which has the same aspect ratio if 3:2.
Which file types should I upload?
Our online image processor and design tool accepts JPEG, TIFF & PNG file types tool however, we highly prefer JPEG as it provides you the best real-time proofing experience. We designed our image processor around this file type because the majority of digital cameras and smartphones capture and save photography in this same file format. JPEG are excellent produce superb print results, minimize file transfer time and also embed your desired ICC color profiling.
Color Space & ICC Color Profiles
Our photo printing is done using the RGB colour space. Please ensure that you upload images in the RGB colour space with an RGB colour profile otherwise colour shifting can occur. We accept all of the popular RGB colour profiles, to list a few: sRGB IEC61966-2.1, Adobe 1998 RGB, ProPhoto RGB, etc…
For B/W or greyscale photos as we generally recommend you convert them to the Greyscale colour space.
