The most complicated part of the painting are the subjects (people/pets). Painting the faces or detailed features from the photo is the most delicate task, and this takes considerable time. For this reason, we need to know the number of subjects in the painting, so that we are able to determine the complexity of the painting, and price it accordingly.
If your photo is of a house/vehicle/landscape please choose landscape as the type. When choosing to have people or pets painted, you will need to count the number of people or pets present. The number of subjects is tallied based on the number of people or pets present in the photo that you want painted and does not count background images such as houses, trees, cars or other buildings.

PaintYourLife PO Box 6489 McKinney TX 75071 USAPlease add a letter with your contact details, your phone number and email address, so that we can get in touch with you after receiving the photos. I only have hard copies of my photographs available. How can I send them to you?
Still, from our experience, we recommend that you pay close attention to the following:
1. Send photos that flatter the photographed person. If you don't like the way you look in the photo, if you think that your smile doesn't look real, or your nose looks too big, try to pick another photo. Don't expect the artists to make the person look much better than he looks in the photo.
2. Try to send photos with the highest resolution. If your photo is less than 100 KB size, its resolution may be too low and our artists may have difficulties in making a good painting from a photo which doesn't clearly show details. 3. Pay attention to the background. You have a beautiful photo of your little boy for example, but the background is filled with details that will detract from the painted portrait. In such a case, you can tell our artists to use a one color background of any color you choose. Just mention it in the comments box, right after you upload the image.
Contact us and we can give some advise how to pick the right image.
Please mention any details that can help our editors to colorize it correctly (like: "The hair should be blond and the eyes should be blue"). We will send you the colorized photo for approval before starting to paint it.
By the way this service is free to you and included in the price.
