OUR PHOTO TIPS

Pet Portraits Taken With Your Own Photos

The key to success! When taking your dog's photo is you need to crouch down and take it at their eye-level. Thats it!

Hold a treat in your hand - it will definitely grab their attention!

Taking the photo outside in natural daylight is by far the best option ... which is a daily occurrence when your four-legged friend takes you for a walk.

Pet Portraits With Your Own Photos

A clever tip! For those that have a small or light weight dog, ask a friend to hold it slightly to one side - it will give the same result as taking the photo at their eye-level. We just need their head & shoulders (don't forget their pointy ears!) and for it to be taken outside in natural daylight.

WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

We hope that we have answered many questions below

If needed we are just a woof, text, email or call away

HOW IT IS DONE

Should I take a new photo?

We highly recommend that you take new photos for us to achieve the best final result. As natural daylight is the best option take some photos outdoors such as in the garden, park or on your next dog walk.

Top Tip - For the very best results take the the photo's of your dog at their eye level - crouch down or with small dogs hold them in your arms to the side of your body.

Can I use my mobile?

Yes! All modern smartphones take excellent photos, and chances are that you will have it with you on your next dog walk.  A good tip is to check that the phone settings are set to taking the largest photo size possible.

How many photo's shall I take?

Take a selection of photos when your dog is looking a little to either side. Don't forget to take a photo straight on. Have a look through the photos, and email us the best 1-3 variations.

Can I use an old photo?

Absolutely! We all have favourite photos of our four-legged friends including those that may no longer be with us. Preferably the photo has been taken at eye-level, showing the whole dog’s head, and is nicely exposed.
If in doubt, just get in contact with us before you order. Our email is: woof@fourlegsonetale.com

Where do I send my photos?

Please email them to us at: woof@fourlegsonetale.com

You can also use the free file transfer service at: http://wetransfer.com
