What size photos should I use?

In order to produce a good print, your digital images need to meet or exceed our minimum recommended sizes listed below. Whenever possible, you should use full resolution, original, uncompressed images. If your image does not meet the minimum recommended size for the size or format you are trying to print, a red exclamation mark will appear on the image to alert you.

Image sizes referenced below are measured in pixels - this is measuring the dimensions (H x W) of your image. The size in kilobytes/megabytes/gigabytes is irrelevant as it measures the amount of disk space occupied by the file rather than the dimensions of the image.

To find the image size in pixels:

  • Windows - right click the file, select Properties, and click the Details tab
  • macOS - right click (or hold control key and click) on the file, select Get Info, and expand the General tab
  • Android (may vary by device & Android version) - open Files, locate the image in its directory, tap and hold on the image thumbnail to select it, tap the "..." menu in the upper right corner of the screen, and select File Info
  • iOS - unfortunately, iOS does not offer a native option to check image size, but you may install a third party app or photo editor to check this.
