Do you have any advice for improving the quality of photos for sublimation?

Sometimes customers bring in photos that are decent quality, but the color is a poor quality. Try converting the image from color to black and white. By doing this, you can save the project, adhere to your quality standards, and make the customer happy with a great photo gift product that’s a tad different than other full-color products.

If a photo has distracting elements in the image, crop the image to a square to change how the image looks. Cropping is a great opportunity to change the mood of a photograph. With your Crop tool in your design software, I suggest allowing for a shaded preview so you can easily see where you will be cropping. For a true square, hold down the shift key while you drag out the crop tool.
