What are the requirements for photos that I upload to use as my card background or as an ID photo?
General – Use a high quality photo from your digital camera – the better your photo the better your card will look. Low resolution photos, photos that are too small in dimensions, scanned photos, photos that are resized/stretched, and/or very dark or very light photos will not produce a quality card image.
Uploaded photo images must meet these criteria:
File Format: JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, or BMP
Resolution: Your image must be at least 840 x 840 pixels
File Size: cannot exceed 10 megabytes (MB)
