Understanding Image Resolution

Follow
Image resolution values range from 0 to 300 dpi, with 300 being the best. For ease of use, we break image resolution into 3 groups:
  • 300:  This is ideal DPI for print. Should print perfectly
  • 250-299: If 300 is perfect, this range is good. Should still be high quality print. 
  • 200-249: Not everyone has access to professional photos. This range is pretty average quality.
  • 100-199:  May print a little bit pixelated, but often times is OK for basic needs..
  • 0-99:  Consider using a new image if possible. Will likely print pixelated.

We also created a print rating score to better communicate the quality of your image when it goes to print.

  • Perfect:  300 DPI
  • Good:  250-299 DPI
  • Average:  200-249 DPI
  • Marginal:  100-199 DPI
  • Poor:  0-99 DPI
Notice: When editing your project very high-resolution images may even seem to be slightly pixelated. This is because we scale images down slightly when editing for performance reasons.
 
Below are two examples of how we offer up these values to you.

For your convenience, we also include the DPI score on the crop window and we give you that number in real time, so the value changes as you adjust the crop handles or image frame.
