How to Size Locket Photos

1 Comment

At Origami Owl we are known for our living lockets which, unlike traditional lockets, do not contain a photo. However, I am pleased to announce we have added two new lockets to our collection. Introducing our Wish Locket and Gratitude Locket.

 

As you can see, these are more traditional lockets that hold a picture. I am asked all the time how to size a picture properly. Usually, I wing it and use the photo template that comes with the locket. While it is helpful, what do you do if the photo you want to use is the wrong size?

I found a fabulous website called Locket Studio. You can upload a picture, select the size you need and you can download or email a JPEG of the proper size photo. Did I mention that this is FREE!

I will add that this is designed for another locket company so the size dimensions are based on those lockets. Our lockets hold a photo that is about 15mm wide so I recommend choosing the 17mm option then use the template provided with the locket for the perfect fit.  Be sure to leave a little room around the subject in the photo so you can trim away the excess.

I did find another site called Odd Prints, but that did not give an option for an oval photo. However, you could use it to shrink your photo then use the template provided to get the oval shape. Odd Prints gives you the option to download a free image as well. You can pay them to print one for you, but the shipping charge is a bit much for one photo. This website is a great option for those who have out Square Pavé Photo Locket Dangle.

This dangle holds a 0.5 x 0.5 inch photo. This website makes it really easy to alter the photo without losing clarity.

I am so excited to have found these resources for everyone. I’ll be sharing them every where. 🙂

If you found this helpful come join me on Facebook in my VIP group, The Twilight Lounge. It’s a fun place to hang out at night once the kids are in bed or you’re done working for the day.

Stay Happy!
