How to Capture the Perfect Photo of a Photo for Your Locket

Do you have a special photo that you want to cherish and keep close to your heart in a locket, but it's not in digital format? Don't worry - the quality of the photo is not as important as the memory it holds. Here's how you can take a photograph of an old photo and make it work for your locket:

  • For the best results, follow the steps outlined in this article. It covers techniques for using your phone, digital camera, scanner, or hiring a professional company. We don’t recommend hiring a professional company for this specific reason. Because the photo will shrink down to such a small size, quality isn’t as important.
  • To take a photo of your photo using your phone, simply hold the phone parallel to the photo and make sure to take a clear, non-blurry picture. Keep an eye out for any glares, as they can affect the quality of the photo. If you do notice a glare, try moving the photo to a different lighting source. Natural light often works best for capturing photos of photos. You surprisingly won’t even need to be near a light bulb or window to find the best light.
  • Once you have your perfect photo, you can easily upload it when placing your locket order. Rest assured that The Locket Sisters will take care of the rest, including cropping the photo to fit perfectly in your chosen locket. And if you have any special requests or preferences for the photo, such as a specific area you want to focus on or a desire for a proof before finalizing your purchase, just leave a note in your order and we will make it happen.
