Can I use Black and White images?

YES! In fact, black and white images can give your product a "timeless" feel that will give it meaning to you well after the year isover. Feel free to use black and white images, sepia ("old-fashioned") images, or even just designs your kids have drawn using Paint or some other computer-graphics program.

How can I find out what the image quality of my digital image is?

  • If you already have an image:
    • Open My Computer.
    • Find the image you want to use.
    • Set your mouse pointer on the image, click the RIGHT mouse button once, and release. A small menu will appear.
    • Set your mouse pointer at the bottom of the menu on "Properties" (It will highlight), click the LEFT mouse button once, and release. A new screen will pop up.
    • You should see several tabs across the top of the page. One of them will say "Summary." Click it.
    • You should see a list of image properties. "Width" is the image width in pixels, and "Height" is the image height in pixels.
  • If you are planning on taking a picture with a digital camera:
    • Make sure you have a camera that takes 2 megapixel images or larger.
    • Make sure your camera is set to the highest setting before taking a picture.
    • Refer to your camera's manual for more details.
  • If you are scanning a 4x6 (regular photo size) image:
    • Set the scanner resolution to 200 dpi or higher.
    • If your scanner does not have a dpi setting, use the highest available setting.
    • Refer to your scanner's manual for more details.

Can anyone else see my uploaded photos?

If you have uploaded your pictures into an account, the only way someone else can see your images is if you share your username and password with them. Other than that, you are the only person who can see your images.

If you have not created an account and you upload images, nobody will be able to see them unless they sit down at the same computer you used, and your session is still valid. If you want to make sure this doesn't happen, just close your browser when you're done.
