How to choose the right Canvas Size for you Custom Diamond Art Kit

One of the most popular Diamond Painting kits are the Custom kits. This means that you can use a photo of a pet, yourself or loved ones, or perhaps a favourite character from a movie or cartoon and create it as a diamond painting canvas. Once you apply the shiny diamond beads to the canvas, it will bring your photo to life with a sparkle!

As your photo can come in different sizes, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the ideal canvas size.

The calculator below makes it easy for you to choose the canvas size for your Meridian Fine Arts Custom Diamond Painting based on the Photo you have in 3 easy steps:
1) Find your photo size in pixels - On your computer, simply hover on the picture file in your folder and it should be the dimensions field which should show something like 4032 x 2034. This means that your photo is 4032 pixels wide by 2034 pixels long. For mobile users, check the instructions specific for your mobile phone.
2) Input the pixels in the Length and Width box below (in any order as it does not matter).

3) The Aspect Ratio will be calculated for you. Reference this Aspect Ratio in the table below to identify which canvas sizes will be suitable for your photo.

In this case entering 4032 in Length and 2034 in Width, gives an Aspect Ratio of 1.3. Referencing this in the table below shows that canvas sizes starting from 30 x 40 cm, 40 x 50 cm and so on will be suitable for your custom diamond art.

If there is 1 person/pet in the photo, then we usually recommend starting from a canvas size of 30 x 40 cm or higher

If there are 2 or more people in the photo, then we usually recommend starting from a canvas size of 40 x 50 cm or higher.

Remember - The higher the size of the canvas chosen, the better the diamond art picture will be as more detail is captured.
