Amazed

I had no idea what to expect. However, the work here is of exceptional quality. When it comes to getting a picture painted or pencil sketched, look no further. And the procedure is quite easy. I cannot recommend it highly enough!!!

I strongly recommend it.

I began the process with a Photo2painting competitor. That company continued sending me an email with a copy of the original photos I supplied them, with none of the adjustments I asked for. After a week of back and forth, I eventually gave up. That's when I decided to send my photos to PaintYourLifephoto2painting. The initial version was returned with the revisions I requested. It was ideal... Without a doubt. 

The process was simple.

The process was simple. The process was simple, and the painting was excellent for the price. I only rated it four stars because my "expedited" artwork arrived after my mum's birthday. Even so, Photo2painting refunded the money I had paid to expedite the painting and apologized profusely.

Our children's oil painting

We are overjoyed. The process was simple, and the painting and frame were excellent. Thank you very much

Extremely pleased!

I am quite delighted with the outcome. Excellent processes and communication. I highly recommend it!!

It is really simple and quick to order…

It is really simple and quick to order and receive a product. The website was easy to use, which made uploading images and buying consumer items a pleasure. My artwork was stunning, and it was a perfect reproduction of the photograph I sent. Customer service was quick to respond to any inquiries or concerns, and my painting was delivered on time. It was a fantastic experience from beginning to end!!

I'm astounded!

I liked how they ask for confirmation before painting after adjusting the photo, send photographs as the painting advances, and are in constant communication with you throughout the process to ensure you are completely satisfied! I was treated as though my image request was of the highest importance to them, and they wanted to get it just perfect. I will return to this company for future art requirements! I've already informed my friends about this organization and their compassionate customer care, and they're amazed and want to learn more about beginning their art request.

Highly Recommend photo2painting.com

This was my first time using the website. Our wedding anniversary approached, and I was stuck as to what to present her. So I thought, why not send a photo of our wedding and have it painted on our room wall? Working with the team on what we wanted to appear like and any modifications we wanted to make to the painting was a pleasure. The staff was polite, and we were instructed to contact them before the final product was delivered if we had any issues or complaints. We truly liked our photo once we received it, and my wife thought it was a fantastic anniversary gift.

I bought a painting as a present.

I bought a painting as a present. The process was simple, and I received the final artwork sooner than I expected. Sandra, the painter I picked, performed an excellent job.

Delighted

Superb

I would give Photo2painting a 10/10. My picture turned out perfectly. Customer support was really helpful and attentive throughout the entire process. Anthony was my artist, and I would certainly order another painting from him! Don't put it off if you're considering obtaining one. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent quality…

Excellent quality of our family photograph On time and with excellent process communication

I strongly recommend...

I wholeheartedly suggest photo2paintimg.com. They were detailed and accommodating throughout the entire process. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the process and want to repeat it. I would definitely use this service again. They are professionals from customer service to wonderful painting.

Couldn't Be Happier!

I purchased one painting, and it turned out fantastic! The entire procedure, from order to receipt, was highly smooth and quick. I couldn't have asked for a better situation. I like both paintings and have now placed an order for a second! I would recommend Photo2painting.com to everyone who wants to capture and share significant memories in a high-quality result.

The best!!

The paintings I received were OUTSTANDING!! I admit I was skeptical—I'd seen some poor versions on the Internet—but this company is the BEST—they seek your permission throughout the process so you know exactly what you're receiving and can make modifications if necessary. I intend to place another order since I like their work!!

Exceptional Memory!

I bought this commission for my son, our house had been burnt 10 years ago and all pictures of ourselves had been burnt as well. So, it is unbelievable what photo2painting’s artist has done - he’s created the exact copy of the only childhood photograph of my son (which I had in old iPad). This painting is truly amazing with so much detail and personality. This was the best gift I could have ever given him. Absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend! Very heartfelt gift. We can pass down for generations!

Tears of happiness!

Photo2Painting and its artists are amazing! My Grandpa passed away right before I graduated from university. He was granma's best friend and we were very close. He has been gone for 10 years this year. It's been hard on my grandma this year and I wanted to give her something special for Christmas. I had an oil painting of my grandpa and her.Her reaction spoke volumes! She loved it so much! She was crying and I was crying! It was the most special moment to get to share with her! Very positive feedback from me!
Martha Matthews

I love my Painting!

The painting is a stunning representation of our dog. When we first saw the painting, we were all in tears. Every day, we miss our dog, but looking at this painting helps us feel as though we still get to see him. Such a great way to remember our beloved dog. The customer service is excellent as well. Super helpful, easy to reach and very responsive. The artwork is excellent, and I am thankful to the artist for creating it. It turned out far better than I had hoped. Honestly, the experience with Photo2painting.comwas nothing but excellent.

Grandad: I love you!

I saw videos of reveals for this site on Facebook. Of course, I was doubtful at first, but after reading several testimonials reviews, I knew I had to try. It's worth every penny. From the time you place your purchase until you receive your painting, you will receive regular updates. That alone is a huge relief. This entire experience was incredible. I will absolutely use this site again and have already recommended it to others. The artwork of my dad and his grandfather Sam (who died many years ago) was flawless. Julie has incredible talent. Because of how lifelike it appeared, my partner, our friends, and family couldn't believe it was genuine! I was quite pleased with my experience.

Why You Should Get Custom Individual Portraits & How To Select The Best Company

Are you looking for an effective way to revive old emotions and create long-lasting memories? If so, get ready to think about transforming your pictures into custom individual portraits.

No one can deny that surprising our loved ones with unique presents is getting harder and harder. While gifts are a wonderful way to express our emotions and show others how much we care, gifting thoughtful items requires much effort and great imagination, right? As a result, we decided to design a better way to give presents and capture memories for a lifetime. How is this possible?

You can simply turn a simple picture into a personalized portrait and surprise your loved ones with something they could have never imagined. Most importantly, you can even create your own personal portrait to celebrate special achievements in your life and express gratitude towards yourself.

So, if you’re wondering why people admire personalized individual portraits and how to get one, you’re at the right place! Let’s discuss the key reasons for creating masterpieces from your basic individual photos!

Reasons for ordering custom individual portraits

  1. To enjoy the pleasure of self-gifting

     – Ever heard the term “self-gifting”? Well, the existence of this concept is clear evidence that we, as individuals, need to tell the world that we feel happy and want to express gratitude toward ourselves. But sometimes choosing a thoughtful gift for yourself can be even more challenging than surprising your loved ones.Creating personal portraiture from your picture seems ideal if you’re aiming to enjoy the pleasure of self-gifting. That way, you’ll thank yourself for all the effort you’re spending to develop your skills and fulfill your goals in a creative way.
  2. To preserve here-and-now emotions for a lifetime

     –Who doesn’t want to master the art of being in the present moment? One of the most common reasons why our customers enjoy creating individual portraits is that they want to preserve the emotions they feel here and now. Everyone who decides to turn their own individual picture into a custom painting has a guarantee that their emotions will be preserved forever. Why? Because our professional artists use the highest quality materials to transform your pictures into individual portraits. Therefore, you can be sure that you’re making a lifetime investment.
  3. To surprise your loved ones with a thoughtful gift 

     –The most obvious reason why you should think about turning an individual picture into a painting is to surprise people with a unique and creative present. It’s hard to think of one more original gift idea when you have already gifted your beloved individual everything that represents your emotional bond. If it’s something familiar to you, then creating a portrait of a person who’s celebrating a special occasion could be the best possible surprise. Regardless of whether it’s their birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion, it’s the least you can do to express your affection.

Process of creating personal portraits from photos

Creating custom individual portraits is a complex process that requires a creative way of thinking and dedication. Considering this, companies that provide photo-to-painting services often use specific applications to digitally transform their customers’ pictures into paintings. But guess what?

We don’t believe in this formal portrait definition. What we believe is that producing heartfelt emotions is only possible if we physically transform your pictures into personal portraits. That’s why every single portrait with us is 100% hand-painted by professional artists. 

Let’s take a look at the entire process of creating personalized portraits from your pictures.

  • First, you choose your preferred photo of an individual and upload it on the website. Try to choose as high-resolution a photo as possible.
  • Then, take a look at available art media with us, such as watercolorcharcoalpencilacryliccolor pencil, and choose your favorite one.
  • Finally, choose the canvas size of your painting and that’s it — place the order for your individual portrait immediately!

The process of creating your custom individual portraits is handled by gifted artists who collaborate with our company. They start by delineating your photo using the thinnest brush or pencil, outlining the figure of an individual, and filling out the basic zones. After adding some extra details to personalize the painting, the entire artwork is ready to be shipped to you as soon as possible.

Tips to choose the most reliable photo-to-painting company

  • Look for social proof

     –Have you ever thought about the importance of customer feedback for companies to succeed? Perhaps not surprisingly, the most objective criterion for assessing the truthfulness of a company is transparency. Do they allow you to take a look at the reflections of customers who have already ordered customized individual portraits? Are they available on social media platforms such as Facebook or Instagram? The key here is not to forget to look for social proof and make sure customers are satisfied enough while giving feedback.
  • Collaborate with professional artists

     –If you’re planning to order a custom personal painting portrait, you definitely want to find a company that collaborates with experienced artists. That’s why you should assess whether the painter who’s going to transform your individual picture into a painting has proven experience in the field.Considering this, we try to provide as much information about the experience of our talented artists as possible. This allows our customers to realize that their paintings will be created by professionals who go above and beyond to take their specific requirements into account.
  • Demand to preview your personal portraiture

     –Does the company allow you to preview your painting before finalizing the order and sending it to you? If so, chances are that they’re reliable enough.The truth is that one of the most important things that helps us build trust with our customers is letting them preview their orders before actually receiving them. Why? Because your opinion is a priority to us. And if you’re unsatisfied with the result, we’re willing to make the necessary changes and meet your needs.
  • Look through pricing options

    – And finally, perhaps the most important thing when assessing the reliability of a company is to determine how reasonable its pricing options are. Generally, companies that offer a wide range of prices and calculate the cost based on specific criteria tend to produce quality portraits.The reason is that a portrait of a person created in oil on a large canvas should be different from a simple pencil painting on a small canvas, right? So, try to determine how flexible the company is regarding prices, and avoid those who demand customers pay more than $20 in advance.

Pros & Cons of Personalized Individual Portraits

As you can see, there are multiple reasons why getting a personal portrait from a photo might be a great idea. Still, if you have some doubts, let us introduce the advantages and disadvantages of creating a custom painting from your individual picture.

Pros

  • Compared to original photographs, customized personal portraiture reflects your personality, feelings, and characteristics better. That’s because they’re made by talented artists who try to revive your emotions from the moment you take the picture.
  • Ordering a personal painting portrait takes just a few minutes. In fact, you’ll require just a few clicks and your order will be delivered to our gifted artists. As a result, you’ll avoid the headaches of contacting multiple people while creating your portrait.
  • If you enjoy personalized items, getting a personal portrait from a painting is the best possible thing you can give yourself. Custom paintings with us are 100% hand-painted by real artists.

Cons

  • If your formal portraiture is too complex, our artists might find it hard to fit in all the details while working on specific mediums such as oil or charcoal. Keep in mind that different types of pictures require different types of media for the best results.
  • Sometimes creating custom individual portraits takes longer than expected. The reason is that our artists hand-painted all the pictures and tried not to miss a single detail you asked them to include in the portrait.

Individual FAQ

Our customers often look for the formal portrait definition before making a decision to customize their portraiture. A custom portrait is a single picture of an individual that reflects their personality, character, feelings, or experiences.  The painting is created from a digital picture and personalized based on the specific requirements of an individual. Therefore, custom formal portraiture significantly differs from other photography genres, such as collective or family portraits.

Since personalized portraits created from photos come in different art mediums, our customers often wonder which one is most suitable for their personal portrait. In order to answer your question, we asked our professional artists which art medium is best for custom, individual paintings. It turns out that oil is the most versatile medium that allows artists to capture tiny details from the photograph and precisely represent the subject. Therefore, if you’re planning to order a solo portrait from your picture, we recommend choosing an oil medium.

We calculate the cost of your personal portraiture from photos based on 3 criteria:Usually, the prices range from $169 to $649. However, if you want to calculate the exact price before ordering your personal portrait, we recommend taking a look at the Pricing & Timing page to find out the approximate cost of your painting.

  • The complexity of the details in the painting
  • The size of the canvas
  • The type and size of the frame (if included)

Getting personal portraits from photos is a quick process that takes a few minutes to finalize your order.

  • Click “Get Started”, pick your preferred medium, and choose an individual theme.
  • Upload the individual photo that you want to turn into a painting and pay a 10% deposit of the total price (see HOW IT WORKS).
  • Let our team edit your picture and get it ready for our qualified painters.
  • Approve the painting if it meets your expectations, or reach out to the customer support team.
  • Pay the remaining amount and try to wait patiently to get your personalized artwork. 

We’d be happy if you shared your feedback with us and let us know your reflections, too!
