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.

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:

How is it made?

Our custom pet portraits are created digitally in our studio and are guaranteed 100% unique! They can only be found at Four Legs One Tale ®.

Our experienced professional digital artists use our own refined photo retouching and digital blending processes, which turns your original photo into a renaissance style masterpiece.

Can I include more than 1 pet?

For now, we only have options for just one four-legged friend; we will have options for two, three, and four pets very soon.

Can I preview my artwork?

Yes, all customers get to preview their artwork, we will send you a watermarked copy for your approval.

Cats are very welcome as well. We also try to accommodate other pets, so please get in contact with us before you order. Our email is:
