You must crop out all parts of the photo that are not the actual painting; do not show mat, frame, etc, only the painting itself. Please save at 72 dpi resolution, with a size of 1200-1500 pixels on the longer side of the image. The maximum size for the image file is 2 Mb. The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.
