The image size that you upload should be at least the size of the print you want multiplied by 150. For example, if you want an 8x10 print, the image size should be 1200 pixels (8 x 150) by 1500 pixels (10 x 150). If the image size was half that (600 by 750), then it would not be possible for Saatchi Online to make an 8x10 print for you as the print would come out distorted or pixilated.
Your image must be a jpeg file that is at least 1200 pixels by 1500 pixels and cannot exceed 50MB.
The best practice in preparing your digital files, ready to be uploaded, is to use photo editing software, such as Picasa or iPhoto or Photoshop, and give the digital file of your artwork the same shape (or aspect ratio) that matches the original. If you do not use photo editing software, your digital file will remain at the aspect ratio of the camera that is used to capture the image.
If the aspect ratio of the digital image falls between the standards required, the image will be put into the grouping to which it is the closest. For example, a 15” x 14” (2250 pixels x 2100 pixels) digital image with an aspect ratio of 1.07:1 would be put in the 14”x14” print category. The sizes that will be offered for sale are automatically determined based on the shape and size of the digital image you upload.
Artists can price their own prints within a specified range of prices which we have determined by looking at the competitive market for open edition prints and positioning Saatchi Online prints within the marketplace.
When you upload your work and choose to make open edition prints available, you will be given the chance to set the price of the smallest print size in your selection. The prices of the larger print sizes will be adjusted accordingly.
Print Crop and Gallery Canvas Wrap Border
If you upload an image that is not the exact shape that matches our print groupings we give you the ability to choose the crop. Unless you change the crop, the uploaded image as displayed in the crop tool is with the default crop that will be used to print. If this does not meet your satisfaction adjust the print crop until you are satisfied with the image that will be printed: please keep in mind that if you want to print all available sizes, you cannot crop to below the largest print size available in the selection.
For canvas prints - the 1.25" edges of the canvas that wraps the wooden frame and visible from the side will either be black or white. The default selection is black, please select white if that is your preference.
