  • Images must be at least 640 x 480 pixels.
  • Small images will reproduce poorly when printed
  • If you increase the scale of your image too much, it may also print poorly
  • The bigger the image you choose, the longer it will take to upload
  • The time your image takes to upload depends on your own internet connection speed
  • If your image is slow to upload, please talk to your own internet access provider for help
  • On a typical 56k modem, each 1Mb will take about 3 minutes to upload*
