How to take the best photo of your pet for a pillow?
Taking a picture of a pet is not an easy task.
The animal model is always in motion. It's hard to get his attention. Before starting work with your pet, it is worth using a few tips that will allow you to make the best possible pillow.
The photo does not have to be taken with a white background. The background is removed by our graphic designers.
We want to create beautiful products for you. Their base is good graphics prepared on the basis of the photo received from you. Each graphic is analyzed and edited in detail so that the product is the best. For this reason, we care very much about receiving a suitable photo from you and its good quality.
Our cooperation will allow us to create a beautiful product. If the photo is not appropriate, our graphic designers will contact you and ask you to correct the photo. If we are unable to make a pillow from your photos, the order will be canceled and the payment for the pillow will be refunded to the account
The right angle for taking a photo is the most important factor in making a good pillow.
You can take the best photo by taking it simply from the animal's eyesight or torso position, so that the pillow after sewing looks like a real one. The angle of inclination of the lens in relation to the animal's level should be as small as possible.

Why does a photo of a standing pet look worse on the pillow
Using a pillow with a tail that extends beyond the outline of the body reduces the size of the pillow. Most often, the tail can be hidden when editing a photo, so that the pillow is as large as possible and stands steadily on the ground. The tail hanging downwards will reduce the stability of the cushion on the ground. The tail that goes beyond the outline of the pillow is removed by our graphic designers without consulting you.
Another issue is the position of the paws, which is especially important when taking pictures of lying pet.. It is shown in the photo below.
The photo was taken from the eye level of the model, but the model wanted to show his paw. As in the case of the tail, the paw extends beyond the outline of the pet, which has a negative effect on the stability of the standing pillow and reduces its size. A pillow with a kitten position on the right side with paws close to the body will look much better. In the case of the tail, it can be removed in the photo, but the feet cannot be removed in an aesthetic way.
Red marks the position of the paws that should be avoided, and green shows the best possible position.
The photo should be taken under the brightest possible conditions. We recommend that you take a photo during the day with natural or very bright lighting to show the natural color of the model's fur. Artificial light should be white, not yellow
Lighting a pet with black fur
Making a pillow with an animal with dark fur requires special attention to several factors.
- You should illuminate your pet very well from the front.
- When you zoom in, you should see hair and a shiny coat.
- It is worth paying attention if any filters like face beautification are turned on. The photo should be taken without filters.
The photo attached to the order should be the source file saved directly on the camera or phone.
Do not attach a photo that you received via messenger, whats app or MMS.
The source photo is the photo saved immediately after it was taken on the phone or camera.
How do I check the quality of a photo?
The size of the photo can be checked by right-clicking on the photo icon, then selecting the properties and details button
The minimum resolution of the photo is 2 megapixels, i.e. 1920 x 1080 px. correctly it should be around 3000x 2000 px, and the best around 5000 x 3500 px.
A smaller photo may not look good on the pillow. Of course, we recommend that you upload a larger photo, if available
We can make a product from every photo of relatively good quality sent by you. It is worth considering the above description and the fact that the inappropriate position of the pet in the photo or the poor quality of the photo can negatively affect the final appearance of the pillow, its size, stability and many other aspects.
If it is not possible to take a new photo, we encourage you to choose the photo that is available and best suits our tips
