To keep the visual quality high, choosing the right resolution for your photo is very important. When your paint by numbers artwork, personalised with your photo, is viewed from near or far, the final result should be optimal. The higher the resolution of the photo, the better the colours will appear on the canvas. This increases the accuracy of the details to give your paint by numbers canvas with a finish very close to that of handmade paintings.

A uniform background

For a custom paint by numbers on canvas, you should ideally choose a photo with a uniform background. The advantage of this background is that the subject of your photo (your pet, a loved one or yourself, for example) is therefore very well emphasised. You also avoid displaying annoying visual elements at the edge of the canvas that could spoil the harmony and charm of your paint by numbers.
