You will also choose an accent texture for your piece from the selection of images below. See the samples for how this is used to add color and richness to the artwork.
You can also choose to send a photo to use as an accent background,making your piece even more personalized — perhaps a favorite sweater, bed, or special place you both cherish.

TIP: Strive for a well lit and focused image that fills the screen as much as possible. Feel free to send a couple of shots so I can choose the best fit for the artwork.


Designs and accents will be updated from time to time, so be sure to check back.



You’ll provide a selection of your most memorable photos of your pet, along with photos of places or playthings your pet loves, if you wish.
The designs can accommodate up to 14 photos. Please refer to your choice for specific ranges.
You can send alternates, there will be a place on the form to indicate your favorites and alternates.



Please send the highest resolution possible.
Your collage will only be as good as the images you share.
Image files sized larger than 1mb will be best. File sizes smaller than 200k are considered low resolution and will not reproduce well.
In general, photos that you download from websites such as Facebook will not be of sufficient resolution. Your smartphone photos will likely be fine, just be sure to send at full size.

Photos will be examined for suitable resolution before the ordering process is completed and before you are invoiced for the commission.

Either the client or the artist must have rights to the images used. (i.e. no unlicensed or rights-managed photography will be utilized).
