1. Pick the SIZE, FORMAT (no frame, DIY frame or framed) and number of COLORS you'd like for your custom kit.

FREE allows you to crop the image as you like, but we recommend using the RATIO options (3:4 or 4:3) options since these will match your canvas. APPLY any desired changes.

5. Once you are happy, click on ADD and you're done!

How to Pick a Good Photo?

There are four recommendations to keep in mind when choosing your image for best results. These are:

✅ Image resolution/quality.
✅ Distance from the camera
✅ Good lighting
✅ Canvas size
 
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that your photo follows the guidelines. We will process the image received, so you must read carefully the items below and select your picture accordingly.

1 - Image resolution/quality

The quality of your photo will greatly affect your custom painting result. The sharper your image is, the better!  

➡️ Try the quick zoom test. If you can zoom in on your image and it remains sharp, you're good!
➡️ 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

➡️ The closer the subject is to the camera, the more details we can capture. As a rule of thumb, the subject/s of the photo should take at least 70% of the pic. Face selfies will work best! Please avoid far shots as they will have substantially less details.
➡️ It is also recommended that you pick a minimum of 36 colors. More colors means more accuracy when it comes to portraits. You can also go for 24 colors, but detail will be reduced acccordingly.

Pick a photo with neutral lighting
 

Light and shadows can impact your custom kit. You need to make sure that your photo has:

➡️ 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.

    How to pick a good image for your custom kit - Canvas by Numbers

    4 - Pick the right canvas size

    This one seems like a no-brainer - the larger the canvas the more detail we can fit. We always recommend a minimum size of 16x20" for portraits or any picture with a bit of complexity. If you pick the smallest 12x16" canvas, the amount of detail will be reduced accordingly.

    What's the difference between Round and Sqaure diamonds?

    We will use our software to select a color palette that matches your photo during the design process. It's up to you to choose your favorite drills!

    ➡️ Square diamonds fit together with no gaps. The canvas is covered completely as opposed to round diamonds, achieving a true mosaic-like look! Due to this, square drills require more precision as they need to be aligned and exactly next to each other. 

    ➡️ Round diamonds are not as delicate as square diamonds when placing them. Since you don't need to care about their orientation, they're ideal for beginners. They're also easier to pick up.
