Then, upload your pictures to our free online editing tool. Make touch-ups by resizing, cropping, and/or adding filters to your picture.

Step-by-step process

 

1. Pick a type of support for your photo 

For this demo purpose, we picked the canvas print. The process however remains the same no matter which product you chose.

Select a type of support for your photo. Metal, acrylic and laminate are more resistant, whereas canvases and frames are more fragile choices. Then, pick the attributes from your product’s choice of attributes.
