If for any reason we feel that the resolution of your photo is not sufficient for the size ordered, we will contact you via email.

Standard digital cameras and digital SLR cameras normally produce slightly different sizes. Our standard photo sizes suit prints for both digital and DSLR images.

What is meant by resolution of an image?

There is no simple answer as to whether your photo will have sufficient resolution & quality to enlarge to your preferred size. This is not determined simply by pixels per inch (The number of megapixels in your photo). It is also affected by the quality of the camera and lens. Today’s modern enlarging software allows many images to be enlarged that previously could not. For this reason, the website does not reject photos when uploaded.
We check each photo personally and contact you via email if we feel that the quality of your photo is not high enough for the size ordered. However, please always upload the largest photo file possible in order to achieve the best result. Additionally, it is normally best to upload the original file from your camera or phone. Facebook & other social media images do not enlarge well as they are normally reduced in size to conserve space on their servers.

What is aspect ratio?

Simply put, aspect ratio is the relationship between the height of your photo to the width of your photo (Width : Height). This becomes particularly relevant with panoramic images.  2:1 aspect ratio means that the width (length) of your photo is two times the height. 3:1 aspect ratio means that the width (length) of your photo is three times the height. 4.5:1 means that the width (length) of your photo is four and a half times the height. And so on …
If your photo does not fit the size range selected, simply select a different aspect ratio until you are happy with the result.

If you are still unsure about which size to choose …
