Please note that we recommend that a photo be 200-300 DPI when uploading it to our site.

NOTE: If your photo doesn't meet these minimum image-size requirements, you'll see an orange triangle (Image) next to one or more print sizes in your cart. To avoid receiving a low-quality print, we recommend against ordering sizes marked with an orange triangle.

 

Use this conversion to judge how large of a print that your digital camera can produce.
