    IS your photo clear enough?

    A good rule of thumb to tell, is if you can see the eye color in the photograph! If so, your photo should be detailed enough to produce the best final product, and a correct representation of your loved one! You can submit multiple photos if you are not sure, or would like to combine the images.
