How good does my picture have to be?

For Photo-to-Canvas you should have a good image both in terms of contrast, resolution and focus. As a rule of thumb, most 3 megapixel and up cameras along with a scan of a photo at 300dpi should assure a good quality printing up to 20x24in (60x90cm). You can always email the picture to us at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and ask us to size it for you.

For an oil painting, we can do much more with less quality. For example, here are images of the original picture taken through a backstop screen and the resulting painting.
