Use creative children's drawings for photo gifts

Small works of art make it big

Strong colours, creative chaos and boundless imagination: Your children's little works of art are certainly colourful and uplifting. The best thing about it: hanging your children’s masterpieces on the wall is easy. We will show you how to digitize children's drawings and how to stage them to perfection.

Simple: Digitise children's drawings

All you need is a scanner. If you don't have one, that’s OK: a modern smartphone or a digital camera will also give really good results.


Put your child's drawing on a white surface and photograph the drawing 1:1. If this is not possible due to the aspect ratio of the original, select a larger section and then crop the picture with a photo editing program.
