Storing photos in your vividphoto account enables you to view, share, and order prints and other related items.
When you upload any digital photo image to your vividphoto online account, only a copy of it is loaded in your online account. The original digital photo file remains untouched on your computer.
Vividphoto only accepts JPEG and JPG, the most commonly used
image file formats.
We provides two easy ways to add photos to your vividphoto account. Which way is best for you? It depends on how many photos you have, Your operating system - Windows or Mac OS.

Photo quality

Back to top

Our printers are capable of making prints with outstanding quality but it is not possible to make a high quality print from an image file that is blurry or distorted or from an image which was recorded at a low resolution.
To get high-quality prints no matter what the size, your photos should meet the following minimum recommended image resolution requirements. If your photo has a resolution below our recommendations, your prints may be low-quality.

To help prevent quality problems, we display a "Print Quality" indication next to the print size of each of the print sizes. Each print size will have either good or poor listed next to it, which is determined by the resolution of your digital image. If you see poor listed next to the print size you want to order, you might want to consider ordering a smaller print size that says good next to it.
