HOW TO CHOOSE AND SUBMIT THE PERFECT PHOTO:
PLEASE SUBMIT A GOOD QUALITY PHOTO THAT IS AT LEAST 800 PIXELS BY 800 PIXELS
If you feel like you cannot find just one photo that fits your pet's personality, feel free to submit multiple. We will choose the best image to work from.
When choosing or taking a photo, make sure it is a large size and that it is not out of focus.
Lighting is also very important; if you take a photo with the flash on, it tends to flatten your image. Natural lighting is always best if you face your pets towards the light source, and it shows off your pet's true colors.
Get on your pet's eye level.
Many people will take a photo of their dog or cat while standing above them. Take a seat or kneel down to their level.
Probably the most important detail is your pet's eyes.
If they are glowing (from the flash) or are dark from shadows, we can only guess are what your pet's eyes look like. The eyes are what really bring your pet's portrait to life, so try to get at least one good snapshot of them.
