How to Submit Quality Images
Submitting quality images is one of our top concerns from our customers. Here are some simple tips to keep in mind when submitting your original photo:
Always use the Original Photo from the Original Device
To obtain the best print quality, you MUST have the original photo for us to use. Any photos that were altered in an added app, uploaded to social media (ex. Facebook, Snapchat, etc.), downloaded from web, "screenshots" of photos, or photos sent via text will not print with the best resolution. When trying to print these images, the resolution is so poor that the photos turn out blurry and grainy.
Submitting Photos Captured by Smartphone Cameras
Cell phone cameras today are able to produce and capture high quality images; the pixels on most smartphones display such crisp images! To make sure we get the best quality image from your phone, always email the photo (choosing original size) or plug your phone directly into your computer via USB. Whenever you text a photo, your phone automatically downsizes the image to send in a multimedia message. If you email directly from your smartphone, your email allows you to upload a larger/original file size. If you don't have email on your smartphone, you can always plug your device into a USB, connect it to your computer and upload/send it that way.
Submitting Photos Captured by Digital Camera
This is the easiest way to get a high quality photo to us - simply upload the image to your computer via USB and send it to us directly or upload on our website: www.fuseprints.com.
Submitting Photos Captured by Professional Photographer
Sometimes you are provided with a thumbnail image or a website with access to all of your photos. These thumbnails and images are not always the largest size. If you find an image you would like to order, make sure you request it from your professional photographer and let he or she know that you plan on having it printed. If possible, advise them of the print size, so they can send you best resolution file size. It’s always best to ensure you have the copyrights to the images as well.
If you have concerns on your photo's quality placing an order, please reach out to us for help: firstname.lastname@example.org.
