Follow these 4 simple steps to design and prepare your Photo Print for print:
  1. Choose Photo Print size
    Check available Photo Print sizes on our website. Select the one that fits you best.
  2. Keep in a mind aspect ratio
    Check whether the aspect ratio of your Photo Print matches the ratio of the print. If they match, the photo print won't be cropped.
    However, if the aspect ratio of your Photo Print doesn't fit the print ratio, crop the Photo Print on your own. If you don't, the printer will decide how to crop your image. This way, you may lose an important part of your image.
  3. Archive your JPEG Photo Print
    Compress the Photo Prints you're preparing for print via zipping up your JPEG photos.
  4. Select Photo Print finish
    The core difference between mat and gloss Photo Print finish is the extra gloss layer. It means that glossy Photo Prints are matte photos with an additional gloss layer.
    The main species of the gloss Photo Print finish is high light reflection. By contrast, matte photo prints minimize light reflection. Choose the photo print finish depending on your needs. 

Well done! Now you can print your Photo Print all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
