Is my file suitable for enlargement?
Providing your file is of high resolution, i.e. above 300 kb, and preferably taken with a 3 million- 5million pixel camera, your files will be okay to enlarge. If you are unsure please contact us & we will check the suitability of you file (also see our print quality guidelines page.
Can I improve the quality of my image?
Sadly not, your image has a fixed number of pixels, the more of them you squeeze inside each inch of paper, the smaller the image will appear on the paper. Likewise, the fewer pixels you print per inch, the larger the image will appear on paper. The number of pixels that will be printed per inch is known as the resolution of the image, or "image resolution". Image resolution has everything to do with printing your image. It has nothing to do with how your image appears on your computer screen, which is why images you download off the internet usually appear much larger and higher quality on your screen than they do when you print them. Please see our print quality guidelines page for more information.
The optimum amount of pixels per inch is 300.
Can you print to a size not listed?
