In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to prepare your images for custom print sizes using Photoshop CC 2020.


I have an image here that’s 15x18 and we want to fit it to a 16x20.
1 • First thing to do is go to “Image>Image Size” and make sure your image is the correct dimensions and the DPI is set to 300. Press OK once everything is confirmed.

2 • Then go to “Image>Canvas Size” and set the canvas to the standard paper size that’s larger than your image.  In this example, I’m going to set it to 16x20 and leave the “Canvas Extension Color” set to white.

When you press okay, you will notice an uneven border around your image.  That’s okay.

3 • Next, we’ll go to “File>Save As” and choose jpeg in the “Save as Type” drop down. Then make sure “ICC Profile sRGB…” is selected and press “Save”

In the popup, make sure “Baseline Standard” is selected and the fullest quality is set before pressing “okay”


That's all you have to do! You can tell us to trim the white off in the order notes when you place your order and you’ll have your custom size! This method works with any size and can be ordered through all of our platforms. Thanks and we'll look for your order soon!
