- Good resolution. Absolute minimum is 300 pixels width of you (not the whole image).
- Narrow. All the customers except for very few (which are all filled in the early game already) are very slim. So the picture has to be narrow. No sticking out arms or anything. I could also just put your head on the sprite of an existing customer, though.
- At a slight angle, walking from left to right. After all the customers walk by the counter to get their food.
I have to fit the submitted images into those images. I can't make them bigger than what is originally in the game.
Alternatively you could also sit in the background at a table, facing or not facing the camera. That has to be a full body picture including the legs and everything and has to look like one of these basically:
If you're a pro at Photoshop or similar you could also remove the background for me and submit the picture as a transparent PNG (PNG is important for the proper transparency). Painting the background white makes my job actually worse and using GIF ruins the quality, so only do that if you really know what you're doing and leave it up to me otherwise.
