How can I submit a photo after an order has been placed?
Please visit our manufacturer's photo update website.
If you are having any difficulties with the photo upload website, please contact us.
Why is it important that you send full resolution images? What does that mean?
Full resolution simply means the photo is the original size that it was taken in your camera. Nowadays there are so many great photo handling softwares out there, but they usually resize your photo so it is easier to email and use on the web. When this happens, your photo becomes too small for print.
It is important that we receive a full resolution image so your card's quality will be spectacular, and so that the proof and print process is not delayed.
How do I know if my photos are full resolution?
Please upload the photo(s) straight from your camera's memory card. Do not email them through ANY type of photo handling software (Kodak EasyShare, Picasa, etc.). To be sure of your photo's quality right click on the image and click "properties". Look next to where it says "size". Anything in the 800 KB - 1MB range or higher is full sized. See below for tips on taking great photos.
The thing that sets us apart from other photo card companies is our photo editing!
Did you know we have a professional photographer on staff? Because of our experience in the photography market, we can usually make your photo even better than it appears. We will handle all photo editing. You are welcome to let us know of any cropping, coloring, layout, etc. requests and we will do our best to implement them in the proof. We will automatically make minor edits to your pictures such as cropping to fit the card, color enhancement, sharpen, red-eye removal, etc. If you would like us to make your photo black and white, sepia, add a decorative border, fix something specific, etc. please just let us know in the special notes section of your order. We will also certainly let you know if there are any problems with the image(s) you have sent. (For professionals, no changes will be made to the files/photos you send).
PLEASE NOTE: Because pictures are copywrite protected and belong only to the person or company who took the picture, we may not reproduce pictures that were taken by anyone other than you without a written consent. Doing so violates Federal Law, and none of us is interested in a prison term or is wealthy enough for any steep fines ;) This includes, but is not limited to, images from a CD you may have purchased or prints that you purchased, including prints purchased recently or years and years ago. Just because you purchased these items does not mean you have been given the rights to reproduce the images. If the images were not taken by you, please contact the photographer for a written release prior to placing your order. By submitting images to Little Lamb Design, you certify that you are indeed the copywrite owner and assume full responsibility for any legal recourse as a result of submitting unlawful images.
The following are tips to help you capture the perfect photograph:
~Be sure your camera is set to its highest quality setting before you begin taking your pictures.
~Take your indoor photograph in natural light, such as in a bright room or by a window. Outside photographs should not be taken in direct sunlight. Early morning or late afternoon provide the perfect opportunity for photo taking. Try turning off the flash. Using it can often wash out your subject or create shadows.
~When photographing babies or children, get down on their level. Try zooming in on their face, hands, and feet. Keep your background free of distractions. Use a simple backdrop such as solid white, blue, pink, or black. Put all of those receiving blankets you received as gifts to good use! Keep the focus on the baby or child, not on the background. It is also a really good idea to try shooting right after their nap or when they have just been fed.
~Take lots of pictures! Keep shooting! By taking several pictures, you are more likely to get at least one you will want to use, but probably several. Feel free to send us as many pictures as you want for us to create with.
~Most importantly, enjoy taking those pictures, relax, keep shooting, and try again tomorrow if you weren't able to get the shot you wanted today.
