Photo Resolution

High resolution (300 dpi)

Low resolution (72 dpi)

Low resolution images will look choppy and lack significant detail.




1.     Final image size should be 300 dpi (dots per square inch).

2.     Use the best setting or largest image size on your camera or phone to ensure

        a high quality outcome.

3.     Resolution and image size are inversely proportional to each other.

        If we need to enlarge an image, the quality decreases; if we reduce your image,

        the resolution increases.  Example: a 2" x 2" image at 300 dpi (acceptable)

        enalrged to 4" x 4" has a new resolution of 150 dpi (unacceptable).

4.     Low resolution images will be jagged, blurry and fuzzy.

5.     The settings used during the original "capture" of an image (ie: scanning, digital

        camera, etc) determines its base resolution.  Resolution can only be improved by    

        decreasing the image size, or by recapturing the image at a higher quality setting.

6.     We recommend a minimum resolution of 300 dpi; computer monitors

        generally have a display setting of 72 dpi.  If we indicate that some of your images

        have low resultion, they may look fine on the compter monitor but will most likely

        print blurry or pixelated. So be sure to submit high resolution photo in the largest

        size possible to ensure the best outcome in case you choose to print the renderings. 

7.     We will let you know if the resolution of your photo does not meet our baseline  

        requirement allowing you to re-submit a higher quality photo before we proceed.
