For lifelike results, the quality of your photos is important. Please use a digital camera. A mobile phone is not recommended because the resolution is too low, but a 5.0 megapixel or higher resolution phone (iPhone 4 or higher for example) is OK as long as you don't use the front-facing camera. Use the flash, even if it's daytime, and get a friend to take your picture the angle will be off if you try to do it yourself. Use a photo with a neutral expression (you can smile, but keep your mouth closed and teeth hidden). No hair on the forehead, and no glasses. We know that getting a profile photo can be tricky, especially when you're making a 3D Mini Me as a surprise gift! However, the profile photos really help so send whatever you can. Please get in touch with us to know the full details regarding the photos to be taken.
