Plan before you scan:

1. Your image will need to be scanned at 400 dpi or ppi if you want your image to print original size. If you want your photo size doubled scan photo to 800 ppi.

2. Scan all photos and documents in full color Do Not scan the photo in black and white.

3. Save your scanned image as a .jpg. For instance ( puppy.jpg )


4. E-mail .jpg image to:  Designz Net


Below is a little more information about Scanner Resolution and File Format:


Scanner resolution is measured in pixels per inch (ppi) or dpi (dots per inch) the more pixels or dots, the sharper the image. Where dpi is used to describe print quality, ppi refers to the digital image itself.


File format refers to the way that scans are saved to the computer. Examples include JPEGs and TIFFs. You can identify a file's format by the extension after the dot at the end of the filename (such as .jpg, .jpeg, .gif or .tif).

If you have any questions please E-mail or leave a comment on the Designz Net Facebook page at  Designz Net 1 Facebook.  Your questions will be answered ASAP.

If you would like to see your photo turned into a painting, visit the Fine Art page on this site to see a sample in Man & Machine.

Copyrighted Photos or Documents: Photos taken professionally (such as senior photos taken by a photographer) must be accompanied by a written statement from photographer allowing the photo restoration.
