Browser Requirements

To create a card using the SHAZAM myPic Studio card designer, a cardholder must use one of the following web browser versions:

  • Microsoft® Internet Explorer® v.7 or higher
  • Mozilla Firefox® v.3.5 or higher
  • Apple® Safari® v.4 or higher

Image Requirements:

  • Use 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

Note: Remember, 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. The better the quality of the image, the better the final card design.

  • Uploading an image of insufficient quality
