What if I can't find the right photo?

• If you are using your phone to take the image, check the settings to make sure you have chosen to take the image in hi-resolution (typically this is a larger file size, so if you do not have the option for hi-res, choose the largest file size (MB) that you can.
If you have the option, images should be 300 dpi in resolution.
• Horizontal Images should be sized to 2700 x 1800 pixels or a 9:6 ratio.

• Take the picture at an angle, not from directly above the plate.
• Save the image as a .jpg, .jpeg, or.png file before uploading it to your Library.
