Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order photos?

For the best experience, order photos on a laptop or personal computer and follow these steps:

~Find the photo you'd like to purchase (you will be following these steps for each individual photo you'd like to purchase)

~In the lower right hand corner of the photo, click the cart icon or "Buy Photo"

~You will then see a menu with options for Downloads, Paper Prints, Fine Art Prints, Wall Art, Desk Art and Keepsakes. "Downloads" refers to full resolution downloads of the photo that can be shared on social media, websites or other online platforms. For the sake of this example, we'll select "Paper Prints"

~Once you click "Paper Prints," you'll see options for "Standard Sizes" and "Other Sizes." Let's click "Standard Sizes"

~Here, you'll see various size options and their prices. Let's go with "4 x 6"

~Here, you'll see options for Lustre, Glossy or Metallic, with descriptions for each. Let's go with "Glossy"

~Here, you have the option to adjust the crop of the photo if you'd like, and then click "Continue"

~Select a Quantity, and click "Add to Cart"

~You may go through this process for as many photos as you'd like, and then click "View Shopping Cart" and proceed to Checkout

This process should be almost identical on your mobile device, but keep in mind that websites may show up differently depending on the device and the browser.
