Modern technology and expert headstone makers have enabled people to add high-quality photos on grave markers. Memorializing a loved one by personalizing a gravestone is one of the best ways to honor the deceased.
If you want to add a specific photo to a flat grave marker or gravestone, but don’t have the slightest idea on the rules and regulations of cemeteries and photo requirements, you have come to the right place.
At Dayton Headstones, we work tirelessly to create meaningful flat markers and gravestones to help you honor your loved ones. Here is a comprehensive guide on choosing the right photo for a headstone to help you get the best results.
Do Not Use Cropped Photos
Think About the Background
Even though using modern tools can help you remove the background from the image, it may not be the best way to deal with a photo because it may make it look like something was cut from the photo and it might get a choppy look.
Always Pick a High-Resolution Photo
Avoid using old photos that have been replicated many times because these do not have the necessary picture resolution to be replicated on the gravestone. The results are often poor when you use a low-quality photo.
If you need any kind of editing on the photo, you can always ask the gravestone maker to do it for you or get it edited from a professional. Do not do it yourself if you want the best picture results.
