Hope everyone is enjoying the snow! We wanted to give you a heads up that at our next meeting on February 12th, we will be selecting our entries for the Crescent Beach Black and White Print Challenge. We have decided to select our entries digitally, so you don’t have to rush out and make prints yet. Please send your B&W images to Steve at competitions@tricityphotoclub.ca before Friday Feb 8th for consideration. For more information about the contest, keep reading!

Pixels and Print Size

When you are considering printing a digital image, it is important to make sure the image is the right size. An image that looks great on your screen, may not have enough information to print well, especially if you want a large print.

Without going into all the details, here is a table that can help you decide how big you can print your images. This is based on a print resolution of 240 ppi. For a much more detailed explanation on ppi, dpi, and print size, you can read my article  in Photography Life.
 
Desired Print Size Minimum Digital Image Size
8” x 10” 1,920 x 2,400
8” x 12” 1,920 x 2,880
10” x 13” 2,400 x 3,120
10” x 20” 2,400 x 4,800
11” x 14” 2,640 x 3,360
16” x 20” 3,840 x 4,800
 
As long as your image size is at least as big as the minimum size above, you will end up with a nice sharp print.
