What software should I use for creating designs?
Many of the designs are simply created using our DYO Design Tools provided and your own pre-cropped photo (in jpg or png format).
For Advanced designs and applications we suggest using Paint Shop Pro 8 (JASC) Photoshop Elements (Adobe) Photoshop 8 (Adobe) PDF Software (Acrobat 5.x or higher (Adobe) There are other programs on the market that will work for designing images, however these are the most popular ones. You can download trial versions of Paint Shop and Photoshop online, which is strongly recommend before purchasing the complete version. This will allow you to see what one works best for your needs and is the easiest for you to learn.
Once you are done creating your design, save it in JPEG (jpg) or PNG format.
Scanned Images: When scanning an image, use your scanner software package to scan the image only; any white space scanned from the physical scanner will become part of your image and will affect the pixel size and quality of the image; this white space will also show on the product even with a white background. To upload the scanned image, it must be saved as one of our accepted file formats (.jpg, .png).
NOTE: iPad and iPhone devises may not support the software used.
