Preparing Images for Printing at Retail | LightScribbles

Rule one, or maybe it's one rule of blogging is to write about what you know. I think that I'm qualified to write about this topic. I've worked in photo retail for over 10 years, much of that time printing photos for customers.

I often see customers that bring in photos that are the wrong filetype, size, bit depth, colorspace, or any number of other possible issues. I'll try to address some of that and help you to get it right next time you take your photos in for printing or order prints online.

This is the image that I'll use to help illustrate this topic.

A Resolution for Better Photos | LightScribbles

A few years a wrote an article to offer my customers and fellow camera club members a better understanding of resolution and how it relates to digital images. It was intended as a beginners' guide of sorts, and not an expert technical reference.

I decided to update the article somewhat and offer it here on my blog. Hopefully it will be helpful to more people this way. If you notice any inaccuracies, please bring them to my attention so that I can have this article as complete and accurate as possible.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to leave a comment. I will update this post with additional information as needed.
