Photo Advice

Is my picture suitable?

Not all pictures will be suitable for our Pop Art portraits so to save time and ensure you submit an image that has the best possible chance to being accepted, follow the simple guide below.


The ideal Pop Art picture:


A close up of the head and shoulders only. Try to ensure the subject’s faces fill most of the actual picture. If the photos has been taken too far away from the subject, your photo will be rejected.


For single subject prints, the photo must be only of that subject. For couples, the photo must be of the couple together (not two separate photos).


The minimum DPI is 150


The minimum size is 600x800 pixels.


The ideal size is  over 2592x1944 pixels.
