This page lists the best practices and recommendations for the images required for the AI Avatar service.

All pictures with a main subject that clearly stands out in the foreground are supported.

General tips

  • Contrast: Snaps taken in great lighting conditions with a strong contrast between the subject and the background will give awesome results.
  • Alignment: Make sure to upload pictures with the right orientation. The best outcome is obtained when the picture aligns with gravity (meaning the ground is at the bottom of the image).
  • Plain backgrounds preferred: Blurry and single-colored backgrounds are easier to process compared to sharp backgrounds packed with lots of details.
  • Clear foreground: If the face is blurry, it might not be removed. Even if only the edges are blurry, they'll remain blurry in the cutout, which may or may not be an issue.

Tips for photos

  • Number of people: It is important images don't include more than one person. Use 2-person photos only for the Couple Avatars.
  • Variety of facial expressions
  • Objects: No additional objects should be visible in the photo.
  • Avoid extreme angles: Capture the selfie from a natural perspective, approximately at eye level.
  • No sunglasses
  • No children
  • No nudity

Tips for pet photos

  • Number of pets: It is important images don't include more than one pet.
  • Full body photos preferred: It's best to show the pet's fully body and there should be no humans in the pet photos.
  • Variety of facial expressions

Performance best practices

  • Convert all images to JPG (avoid using PNG) to have minimal file transfer times.
  • Downsize all images to 512x512 pixels.
