What is the best Image Resolution for Website?
Ideal screen image resolution (detail an image holds on screen) is 72 pixels per inch. If a picture is less than 72ppi, it will appear fuzzy (what we call pixelated). Low-resolution images are difficult to work with and can make presentations/websites appear unprofessional. If you can afford to have a bigger image resolution, 150dpi would be the maximum for bigger computer screens.

What is the best Photo Resolution for Printing?
Printing resolution tends to be bigger than screen resolution. This is due to the pixel dots being closer together when printed than they are on a monitor. You can fit more pixels in a printed image than you can on a screen.

Because of this, you should never print your images at the same resolution of your screen. These are typically 72 dpi (dots per inch), so you want to aim for anything between 300 and 1,800 dpi when it comes to printing. Digital images come from thousands of tiny tiles capturing light and color: the more the pixels, the higher photo resolution. If you desire Photo resolution or printing in desire sizes, let us know upon inquiries.

For images at 300 dpi, you may print:
