Ask a question:

What resolution should my photos or layouts be?


Photos should be scanned at 300 dpi unless you require a larger printed size, in which case a higher dpi should be used. For instance, if you scan a 6x4 photo and you wish to have it printed as an 8x10, then a resolution of around 600 should be used.

Layouts should be saved as 300 dpi and created in the size you wish to print. Note: Photos taken off social media sites such as facebook, twitter, myspace, etc usually are not large enough to use. These photos appear large on a computer screen but are generally not large enough to print out in good quality.

It is recommended that you obtain the original files to use instead.
