Choosing a Photo
HERE ARE THE 3 SECRETS TO CHOOSING THE PERFECT PHOTO FOR YOUR CUSTOM DIAMOND PAINTING:
1. Choose Only Large High-Quality Photos.
2. Pay Attention To The Colors And Shading Of Your Original Photo.
3. Pick The Canvas That Best Fits Your Photo.
1. CHOOSE ONLY VERY LARGE HIGH-QUALITY PHOTOS.
Only submit a photo that is:
- Very Large
- Very High-Quality
- Taken In Good Light
**If your image is even a little bit blurry or pixellated when you look at it, it will NOT work as a diamond painting. Images need to be super high quality to work.**
What makes a good photo? Pixels.
Now for the sake of metaphor, imagine each pixel is a nice little diamond.
The more pixels (diamonds) you can pack into an image (canvas), the more detail you get in your painting.
We need your photo to have a LOT of pixels (diamonds). That way, when we blow your photo up and print it onto a canvas, your final painting will look as crystal clear as your original photo.
IF YOUR IMAGE LOOKS BAD (BLURRY, PIXELLATED) WHEN YOU ZOOM IN: Choose a different image. Your original image is too small to be turned into a diamond painting. Please choose a different image for the best results.
QUICK TIP: If you have any doubts about your image, use a photo-viewing program to zoom in to your image and see how the image looks. If you're on your phone, simply pinch your screen and zoom in to see how the picture looks up close.
2. PAY ATTENTION TO THE COLORS AND SHADING OF YOUR ORIGINAL PHOTO.
One of the most common questions we hear: "Why is the white part of my diamond painting a different colour? Why does the black part of my painting contain brown and green diamonds?"
If your original photo is slightly red, or slightly blue, that colour will be magnified 1000x when we turn your photo into a diamond painting kit.
And when there's a slight red hue on your entire photo, that red bleeds into parts of your painting you would expect to be white. Check this out, for example:
When we blow up your photo, every pixel becomes much more obvious. It's kind of like looking at your face in one of those super close-up mirrors. You notice every pore, wrinkle, spot, whatever. With your diamond painting, you'll notice every pixel you place with a colour that just feels "off."
To stop this from happening, we recommend making some basic colour and tone adjustments in your favourite photo editing program before submitting your photo for a custom. For a free tool you can use to make these adjustments on your own, you can check out LunaPic - https://www11.lunapic.com/editor/
What a world of difference some basic colour adjustments can make! Pay close attention to the colours and hues in your original photo!
3. PICK THE CANVAS THAT BEST FITS YOUR PHOTO.
Extremely happy with my completed Dream Cottage 60×60 cm full drill square DD.
Iam so happy with it .Thankyou have not started it yet as I have had both hands operated on .But I cannot wait to start it will be ordering two more custom pictures very soon I will send a photo as soon as I have finished horse one it is Awesome thankyou so much Michelle
I have been very pleased with my contact with Needleworks, particularly Jill because her communication has been very good, there is always a time problem from when we order the canvas until we receive it, this is why communication is vital.
I was very happy with how the photo has reproduced but as I have been doing the diamond painting the colours of the faces are very orange so not sure if I will give it as a present as i had intended.
