What exactly is a Lord Of The Pets portrait?

All our pet portraits are created by expert photoshop artists. We incorporate your pet into the design of your choice and apply our specially designed filters to create a portrait that looks like it was painted by Michaelangelo himself!

What guarantee do I have of the quality?

We're so confident in the quality of our artists and printers that we offer a full 30 day money-back guarantee on all our products from the date of purchase. We also offer previews of your artwork to approve before we send it to production.

What is canvas mounting?

Canvas mounted prints have a beautiful and artful quality. After we create your portrait we print it onto high-quality canvas, which is then carefully stretched over a wooden frame. All our canvas mounts are printed with a black edge to ensure things like ears aren’t wrapped around the edges.

Sparta canvas portraits don't have the black edge. This allows our custom backgrounds to wrap around the edges of the frame.

What type of photo works best?

To help you choose the best image we have put together a list of tips and suggestions. Visit our “Photography Tips and Tricks” page to help you decide which photo to choose.

Our top tips:

1. Only upload high-resolution photos.

2. Don’t choose an image which is too dark or too light (blown out).

3. Avoid taking images from social media to use for your portrait. These images are often compressed or reduced in size and lack the quality that will really make your design pop.

4. If your image won’t work we will let you know and offer the opportunity to upload another. If you don’t have another photo available we will offer a full refund.

What retouching will you do to my photo?

Our team are very experienced portrait retouchers but, apart from removing tears or some slobbering, we don’t retouch your pet.
We do adjust the overall tone of your pet to match the rest of the design. For example, if they are too bright and your chosen design is darker, we will gently darken them so it looks like they belong to the rest of the design.
Ultimately, all we do is make sure your pet belongs in your chosen design.

Will you change my image?

To offer you the best end result, our experienced Photoshop artists will enhance your image in a few ways. If your pet is facing the opposite direction to the design we will flip the design to match your pet. This is so any distinguishing features they have will remain on the correct side. If needed, we may darken or lighten your pet to accurately match the rest of the design.

Do I receive a preview?

Yes! We offer previews of all our products. We'll ask you to approve the artwork before we send to production. If you have any minor requests we'll do those for you and send you the updated artwork to approve.

We offer a 30 day guarantee from date of purchase so that, if you don't receive exactly what we offer on our site, we'll give you a full refund. For peace of mind, your portrait will look exactly as you see on our website, but it will be your pet printed in the design.

We emphasise that customers are happy with the photo they have uploaded to us. If we think the photo is not great we'll email you requesting a better photo. Try to upload a photo that accurately represents your pet - this includes making sure the fur colour is accurate in your photo. We use the same colours and positions so you know exactly what you can expect of your own Pawtrait.

We can also refund the order if the customer sends us proof of damage via a clear photograph of the damaged area of the product. The photo must be emailed to us through our “Help” page and include your order number. Refund will be issued within 7 days if the customer prefers a refund instead of a replacement of the product.

Caring for my Lord Of The Pets portrait?

At Lord Of The Pets, we use only the highest quality canvas in our prints. Follow these tips to keep your Pawtrait in the best quality for many years to come!


Light that shines through the windows and also artificial ceiling lights or lamp light can damage canvas prints over time. Light breaks down the paper that the canvas print is printed on and also causes discolouration and an overall brittleness. For best results, it is best to avoid placing the canvas print in direct sunlight and keeping as much light away from the artwork as possible. Soft lighting is recommended.


Humidity can damage prints greatly. High humidity within an area can cause mould and mildew in places on the print. Mould and mildew can completely destroy good artwork so humidity needs to be kept low within the area where the prints are placed. Moisture in the air builds up when there’s not enough air circulating around so be sure to check room ventilation; open windows or doors regularly.


Removing dust is important in maintaining and caring for prints. Avoid a cloth which is rough and heavy to wipe away the dust and don’t use polish or chemicals to get rid of the dust. Cloths made of the softest material possible should only be used. We recommend you dust your Pawtrait regularly to maintain the best quality.
