Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What image types can I use for poster printing?

Only JPEG format (*.jpg, *.jpeg) can be used. This (JPEG) is the standard format for digital cameras.

How do I upload an image?

First select the poster or canvas format. Then click "Browse..." under "Select image" to select an image directly on your hard drive. You can find your images on the hard drive easily again by creating a folder on the desktop or a special directory (such as canvascentre) for storing all the images from your digital camera. Clicking the Upload button will add your image directly to the basket. Further information on this topic is found here.

We print your poster at high resolution. You can achieve optimum quality for your image if it has 100 dpi at the selected format size (such as 60 x 45 cm).

What resolution must my image have?

The higher the resolution, the better the image quality. However, file size also increases at higher resolution.

Please remember, however, that the quality of a poster is determined by the resolution, and we do not accept responsibility for complaints caused by insufficient resolution.
