Resolution Basics

  • The higher the dpi, the greater the resolution, the better the image quality. Higher resolution images create larger file sizes and longer to upload.
  • Resolution is directly and inversely proportional to an image´s physical size. When you increase the resolution of an image, reduce its size. When you enlarge an image, lower the resolution. Otherwise, the image will print poorly.
  • For printed images, the ideal resolution is 300 dpi for images and 400 dpi for text at the final printed size.

Use this chart to help you determine the proper dimensions of your image at your desired print size and in the recommended resolution of 300 dpi.
