Image files and image quality

Which data formats can be processed?

We process JPG (jpg, jpeg) and PNG formats. Most digital cameras automatically take pictures in the required JPG-format!

Which image resolution is required?

The higher the resolution, the better the picture on your printed photo puzzle. The quality of the print also depends strongly on the resolution of the digital original photo. If your pictures have a minimum length of 1600 pixels on its longest side, this is sufficient for a puzzle of 200 or 500 pieces. This corresponds approximately to a picture taken with a 2 Mega pixel camera. For the puzzle consisting of 1000 pieces we recommend a minimum size of 2500 pixels which corresponds to a 4 Mega pixel digital camera.

After having uploaded your picture, you are taken to the “puzzle composer” where a scale ranking from 1 to 5 stars indicates if the quality of your picture is suitable for the puzzle format you have chosen:

5 stars = excellent resolution
4 stars = good resolution
3 stars = average resolution; Print may possibly be blurred
2 stars = moderate resolution, print will be blurred
1 star = bad resolution, print will be very blurred

Please note that this scale only refers to the resolution of your picture. Image sharpness and general quality of the picture cannot be considered. The larger the photo puzzle of your choice is , the better the image resolution needs to be. A visual inspection of your image will not take place. We do not modify the resolution of your transferred file! A refund due to insufficient quality of the image file can not be processed. Please ensure quality of image before confirming your order.

What is the maximum file size I can upload?

The maximum file size is 40 MB.

Which colour spaces required for my photo or graphic?

Please transfer your pictures in RGB or sRGB colour space. sRGB is the standard colour space of most digital cameras. Please also save black and white pictures as a JPG-file in sRGB and not in grey scale.

Will my photo be edited?

No. The photo won't be edited and will be printed exactly according to the image file you transferred to us.

I would like to prepare an exactly fitting file. What dimensions should the file have?

Please prepare your Photo Puzzle file with the following dimensions (pixels):

Number of pieces Width Height
100, 200 or 500 pieces 3409px 2567px
600 pieces, heart 4000px 3409px
1000 pieces 4530px 3409px
2000 pieces 6406px 4819px

Please take a margin of 35px into account on all edges. This is the area where the cutting die will hit the puzzle. You should not place any important picture elements there.


For the Photo Pairs game cards you should prepare your file with the following dimensions (in pixels);

Product Width Height
Photo Pairs card 2.36 x 2.36 inch 803px 803px

Please note that 47px will be cut off on the edges of your picture during production. You should therefore not place any important picture elements there.


Can colour deviations occur when printing?

Unfortunately, colour differences cannot be excluded due to the individual adjustment of monitors which can differ in brightness, resolution, contrast and colour or resulting from different graphic boards. Colour deviations between your monitor and the finished product are thus possible.

Can I use every possible image I like to create my photo puzzle or photo game?

You are required not to infringe copyrights, trademark rights or other protective rights of third persons. Illegal images are strictly prohibited. Further information can be found in our GTC.

Ordering and payment methods

This way you may order several different photo products in one command and save shipping costs. If you would order every photo product separately, you would have to pay full shipping costs for every single product.

Is ordering on-line secure?

We use the SSL-security system (Secure Socket Layer) together with a 128 Bit encoding when transferring data. This technology provides for ultimate security and is also used by banks for data protection of on-line Banking. A closed key or lock in your browser shows that your data is encrypted while being transferred.

We set a high value on diligent handling of your data. Our aim is to ensure you enjoy visiting myphotopuzzle.co.uk and recommend our website in good conscience. Since we are legally bound to publicize in which way we process your data, we explain this in our privacy notice.

Shipment and delivery

Can I have the order delivered to a different address?

Yes, in the address data area you can fill in a delivery address different from the invoice address in order to send the photo product e.g. as a gift to another person. This service is free of charge. Please do not forget to inform the receiver about the parcel. In case the receiver is not available to sign for the receipt of the parcel on working days, please be so kind to fill in an alternative address such as a working address.

What is the delivery time of my order?

An order with a photo puzzle, a game, a frame or accessories that has been placed before midnight, will be produced and shipped the next day. Orders with a photo book or a calendar will be shipped at the latest on the third working day. UPS usually delivers the parcel on the 2nd or 3rd working day after shipping. We will inform you by e-mail and send you a tracking number as soon as the parcel will leave the production department. Please remember that UPS does not deliver on Saturdays. If you happen to be in a remote area, please note that the delivery might take longer.

Can I check the status of my delivery?

With the transfer of your package to the UPS courier, you will receive an email with your tracking number. With this tracking number you can always inquire on https://www.ups.com/content/gb/en/index.jsx about the current status of your order.

The puzzle is meant as a gift, can you speed up my order for this special occasion?

Our process is aligned to deliver as quickly as possible. After having confirmed your order, the photo product goes directly into the automated production process. From this moment on, it is impossible for us to take any influence in the production process. We hope that you will understand, that for technical reasons we cannot treat orders in a privileged way. Therefore, we would like to advise you to order your gift a few days earlier, to be sure it will reach you in time. The expected delivery date is always mentioned in the shopping cart and can be found in the order confirmation as well.

Can I pick up my order in person?

Unfortunately, collection by the customer is not possible.

What are the shipping costs?
Photo puzzle, Photo Pairs Aluminium frame
England, Wales, Scotland £ 3.99 £ 6.99
Northern Ireland £ 5.99 £ 9.99
Which courier delivers my package?

We send your order with UPS, the courier with whom we have the most positive experience. UPS delivers your package quickly and safely.

Replacements & Refunds

Can I get a refund if I do not like my photo product?

Unfortunately not. You are not allowed to withdraw from a contract regarding goods which have been manufactured based on your individual specifications. That is why it is important to upload an image with not only at least a 3 stars indication for its resolution, but also an image with a very good sharpness that has been taken with sufficient exposure.

What if my product is damaged or I received the wrong product?

UPS is responsible for delivering your package in the right condition. If you have received a damaged or incorrect product, you are obliged to have your complaint confirmed by the delivering UPS driver. We send wrong delivery and transport-damage declarations immediately to UPS. Without the drivers confirmation we can not treat the complaint. If you notice the delivery of a wrong puzzle after the driver has left, please contact our service team. We will find a solution and tell you what to do with the parcel.

All prices include VAT and exclude postage.
