    Just my humble opinion again... Even with this one, I think the most interesting part of the image, the ripples in the foreground, was lost to the crop. The horizon is close to the upper 1/3 of the source image, and at the lower 1/3 in the pillow preview. The most interesting clouds are absent from the preview image, too.

    Granted, with a different aspect ratio between the source image and the printed pillow, the image will either have to be cropped or stretched, and cropping is usually/probably the preferable option between those two.

    That's kind of what happened to the first one I put up of my Daughters paintings. There is a moon at the very top of the painting and try as I might I could not get it to show. Still turned out ok but could have been better.

    Just playing around with the design app and seeing what might stick... years ago my daughter & I went to the "Experience Hendrix" tour when it came through Austin. We had some time to kill before the show, so we walked around the backside of the venue, the Moody Theater, and there were two EH tour buses parked there. The graphics on each bus were absolutely amazing. We were the only ones around and had we not walked back there, we'd have never seen them. Unfortunately, I can't get the entire image of the bus on the pillow with the editing tool but it's not too bad.

    This one is a 7:4 aspect ratio and it's difficult to say if it's any closer. One thing is for sure, the preview tool definitely cheats the image upward (and there's no way to counteract that), which will end up cutting off the top of the uploaded image if you make the image wide enough to fill the width of the preview. The moon in ahursey530's first upload is a good example.



    It's hard to know how accurate the preview is, since it's superimposing the user's image into a generic image of the pillow. A real pillow has a complex shape and the straight lines in this test image would not be straight if this was an actual picture of a pillow with this geometric design printed on the fabric. The preview software also lacks the human element, meaning the person sewing the pillow will probably have a good idea about which portions of the image you actually want centered on the pillow. Nevertheless, it would be helpful to know what aspect ratio actually provides the best starting point. The actual pillows will all start from the same sized blank of fabric and use roughly the same seam allowance. Knowing the actual width and height of a sewn but not stuffed pillow should be the key to knowing what aspect ratio works best for the images users will upload.

    Finally, it's clear the concept works best for images that don't necessarily have rigorously defined edges. That allows leeway for which parts of the image will actually be shown on the finished product. Dutch's and OneClick's photos are great examples.

    As I said before... I only mean to be critical in a hopefully constructive way.

    It is defiantly difficult to load and center a landscape photo using the UI. Here is about as good as I could get it after 10 min of goofing around...

    "This image has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit your pillow." ~30% will get this
