Newswest Tech Tip.

How can you tell at what size a photograph can be printed with good quality? It’s all in the dots. Most print publications use 300 dots per inch as a standard. (You can safely pretend that pixels and dots are the same thing.) This gives us a basic rule of thumb for print size.

Divide the size of your image in pixels by 300. An image of 4608 by 3072 pixels can print at about 15 x 10 inches without serious loss of quality. For publication, such a picture can be downsized easily. Upsizing is not an option. This is great information to have when submitting a photo to be published or when taking a USB stick to a shop to print gifts.
