Pick Your Pic Photo Guidelines


Upload Guide

  • Picture files can be .JPG, .PNG, .GIF, .TIFF or .BMP format.
  • The file size should be at least 50KB in size, not to exceed ten megabytes (MB) and at least 840X480 pixels. For best results, use larger Images with higher resolution for greater clarity on your personalized card.
  • The maximum file size is three megabytes (MB).
  • Small pictures will reproduce poorly.
  • If you increase the scale of your picture excessively, it may also reproduce poorly.
  • The bigger the picture you choose, the longer it will take to upload.
  • The time your picture takes to upload depends on your internet connection speed.
  • If your Image is slow to upload, please talk to your own internet service provider for help.
  • On a typical 56k modem, each megabyte will take about three minutes to upload. However, this speed depends on your connection speed.
  • Your Image needs to be downloaded to your computer's hard drive, before it can be uploaded to the designer.

  • Any references to the Olympic Games or events.
