Convert Your Photo to a Canvas Painting article hero

If you’re like most Americans, you probably have hundreds if not thousands of photos currently sitting in your online photo storage, or piled into dusty boxes in your attic. Looking through these photos is a great way to connect with loved ones, and reminisce about past events like weddings, family reunions, vacations, and more.

Instead of leaving your memories online or in storage, why not turn your photos into a canvas painting? That way, you can celebrate and enjoy your family history instead of relegating it to storage.

At Canvas on Demand, we’ve developed the technology to easily turn any picture into a canvas painting. All you need to do is upload it to our site, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Let us show you how.

The Process for Converting Your Photo to a Canvas Painting

Our process, which was designed by experts trained in framing, art, and design, offers a completely customizable experience. You get to choose the photo, the size of the canvas, and the finishing options. Here’s how it works.

Step 1: Upload Your Image

Once you get to the Canvas on Demand website, the first thing you’ll need to do is upload a photo. We recommend a minimum file size of anywhere from 100KB to 4.5MB, depending on how large you want to make the final canvas. You should always pick the largest file size available. If the file size is too small, our uploader will give you a warning immediately.

Step 2: Size and Edit Your Image

In our editor, you can easily crop and rotate your image, or change the color profile. We offer two options:

• Black & White

• Sepia

From there, you can choose to add a professional review of your image. Our trained image experts will personally check your image for quality issues, adjust the brightness, contrast, and sharpness, then send a personalized assessment to your email for your final approval before it goes to print.

Step 3: Pick a Size

Once you’re satisfied with your image, the next step is picking a size. We offer more than a dozen standard sizes, from a 8” x 8” Premium Tabletop Canvas to a 32” x 48” Canvas Print.

Step 4: Pick Your Frame and Edging Options

Our gallery-wrapped canvases are strong enough to hang on their own, since they’re made with museum-grade materials. If you like the look of a frame, you can add a black, walnut, or white frame to your order.

Step 5: Check Out

Once you’re satisfied with your image, add your new photo canvas painting to your cart and check out. Our turnaround time is typically less than a week, so you could be hanging your new canvas painting less than two weeks from your date of purchase!

This is our second purchase from you. The first was a large canvas in a floating frame. It was delivered to our door in a very large box. It was in perfect condition after traveling across the country all the way to Hawaii! The second was a smaller framed picture and it is just great! We think you guys really care about what you do and we thank you very much!

I can't explain how happy I am with the finished product. I am always nervous because you never know what you will receive when ordering online. I chose Pixel Painting and I am so incredibly amazed with how beautiful the picture is. It was worth every penny. I will definitely be ordering from Canvas on Demand in the future! I want to thank you so much! I know my boyfriend is going to LOVE his Christmas gift.
