Images and File Types

Can I upload images from social media?

Absolutely! But images from these sites are automatically resized by the program and may not have sufficient resolution for large image templates. While other sites may allow you to print these photos onto their products with a warning, our standards are higher. We limit these photos to only the resolutions that will produce a high quality print.  Because we care A LOT about quality.

What does this mean? Most images from Facebook will look good in a 4x6 frame and some are suitable for even larger formats. From Instagram, you can use a 5x5 frame. We always recommend that you use the original image files if you have them available (such as on your computer or mobile device).

Do you keep my photos on file?

If you create an account, you can save your uploaded images.

What digital image formats do you accept through this site?

We accept .gif, .png, and .jpg files. If you have an image that is not in one of these formats, please contact hello@frameology.com to see if we can help.

What resolution should my files be in?

When in doubt, maximum resolution is always best!  We want to ensure the highest quality product for your precious memories, so we recommend that you use photos above 300dpi, and the minimum that we allow is 150dpi.  Take a look at what that means for resolutions at different frame sizes:

4x6 / 600 x 900 (minimum) / 1200 x 1800 (recommended)

5x5 / 500 x 500 (minimum) / 1500 x 1500 (recommended)

5x7 / 750 x 1050 (minimum) / 1500 x 2100 (recommended)

8x10 / 1200 x 1500 (minimum) / 2400 x 3000 (recommended)

11x14 / 1650 x 2100 (minimum) / 3300 x 4200 (recommended)

Care and Use

What are the care instructions for my frame?

Frameology frames are all hand crafted and of the finest quality. But they can get scratched, so never lay them down on a hard surface. To clean your frame, avoid using harsh chemical cleaners. A soft cloth is all you need. Even our sterling silver frames require minimal maintenance. They are all tarnish proof, so you will never need to polish them.

Where should I display my frame?

In your home, at your office, any physical place that you want to make more beautiful and personal. For some inspiration, please check out our blog.
