Image Requirements for Design Your Own MyPicture Debit Card

The better quality the image is, the better the final card design. For all images, you must:

  • Use a one of the following file formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, bitmap, or TIFF
  • Ensure the image file is at least 840 x 840 pixels, and no more than 10 MB in size
  • Own the image or have permission from the owner to use it through proper licensing of the image(s)

Note: Be aware that an image captured with a disposable camera or cell phone does not produce the high quality, high-resolution image required for MyPic Studio and cannot be used.
