Transform Your Photos into Art

Bored of your tiny snapshots...?

Got a hard disc full of great photos but don't know what to do with them? Or maybe you're just a keen photographer or artist looking to showcase your favourite work? If so, this is your chance to have that treasured photograph, drawing or painting (even kids ones!) immortalised as fabulous works of art. These special custom prints make the perfect gift, surprise or just a unique personalised decoration for your home.

You simply send us a good quality digital file or a regular photograph and we will do the rest. If you have a particular artistic style in mind then please let us know and we'll do our best to oblige but you may find that we already have things catered for in our Special Effects options.

Please ensure that you have the copyright or permission from the owner for the image we are reproducing.

For more assistance on how to use our service, please see the answers to our most frequently asked questions below.

How do I upload a photo?

To upload a photo, click the "Select Photo" button and you will be directed to your computer's folders. Go to the folder where you store your photos and double-click on the file you would like to select. Then click on the "Upload" button and your photo will begin uploading to our system.

During the upload process, you should see a graphic illustrating the progress of your photo upload. It may take up to a minute or two to upload your photo depending on your connection speed and the size of your file.

Once your photo is uploaded you will see it on the screen in our editing tool.

How do I use a physical photo?

If you want us to reproduce a physical photo, please digitise your image using a scanner at a minimum of 300dpi resolution and ideally 600dpi for best results. Alternatively please post it to us on the address shown on the Contact Us page with a covering letter explaining what you would like us to produce

What file formats will you accept for my image?

Currently we only accept digital images in JPG format to ensure speed and efficiency of upload. If you want to use an alternative format, please post it to us or use a File Transfer Service such as www.yousendit.com

What is the recommended resolution?

The resolution quality from most modern digital cameras will be suitable for digital reproduction. However, for best results, we recommend using a camera that is at least 2 megapixels. We utilize Fractal technology to enlarge images so we can obtain huge enlargements with minimal loss of detail.

Do you offer any kind of special effects?

Yes! You can simply choose an effect from those available and preview (in some cases) on your own image before ordering. We have simpler effects such as black and white or sepia toning right through to more exotic pop art and colour splash effects.
