Print Resolution (dpi) & Size (pixels)

Once an image is sent to your printer, the photo's actual printed size (and therefore quality) will depend upon the file's dpi setting (dots per inch). Industry standard settings for magazines etc are usually 600dpi. Other printed material may only require 300dpi whereas web images are usually set at 72dpi.

I am happy to supply all images at your preferred print resolution. If a preference is not specified they are by default set at 600dpi.

Most horticultural photographs at NZ Plant Pics are 1952 x 2592 Pixels = 5,059,584 = 5 mega pixels. At different dpi settings this size image would produce the following size printed photos:
