Black and white
Black and white effects are historic yet sleek classic visuals that absolutely never go out of style.
Sepia tone is a reddish brown monochrome tint. When applied to your photo, it gives the picture a warm, antique feeling.
Your image is broken up into very small images, and the total visual impression is a composite of the various unit image. This creates a dynamic and artistic feel.
Invert creates a negative of your image, in which the lightest areas of the photo appear darkest and the darkest areas appear lightest. The colors of your photo are also reversed into their respective complementary colours.
Embossing creates a stampled appearance or metal coating over your custom art piece.
Pixelate enlarges the size of the pixels in your photo, giving it a retro 8-bit video game feel.
Blurring effects merge adjacent pixels that softens any sharp features of your custom art print. This effect is great for hiding imperfections or de-pixelating images that are too small to print.

Digital image quality is measured in PPI (pixels per square inch). Without getting too technical; the lowest PPI ideal for any large format printing is 72. This means that the minimum pixels your image has to be for a 12 inch photo is 72 x 12 = 864 pixels wide by 864 pixels tall. The more PPI an image has, the clearer and sharper it will appear. Our Image quality Rating System calculates the PPI of your image and provides a rating for your image. When uploading your desired image, our rating system will provide you with a rating that best explains the clarity and quality of the file you’ve shared. In addition, once you have resized and cropped your select image, our rating system provides you with a new accurate rating based on your adjustments.

When an image is enlarged, it loses resolution. This results in a lower PPI. If you have an image at 300 PPI that’s enlarged to 2x of its original size, its new PPI will be 150. At this measurement, your image will still maintain an excellent appearance when printed.
Aspect ratio defines the relative size of height to the width of an image. The table below describes which aspect ratios are best to select depending on how your photo was taken.
