Print Res Vs Screen Res?
Why do I give you 2 versions of your wedding images – print and screen resolution?
Digital images are measured in pixels per inch, or ppi, which is similar but not quite the same as dpi in printing. Most computer monitor displays are 72 ppi which is very low resolution compared to print. Most digital images looks great on your monitor and 72 ppi images will be a smaller file size and load faster than a 300 ppi image. So I provide you with the images in screen resolution – perfect for sharing via email and displaying on any screens.
When it comes to printing the dpi refers to the amount of ink that is printed on paper. The more ink, the higher the resolution. 300 dots per inch is the standard for quality printing. When I provide your images in high resolution at 300 ppi they will be very large file sizes so should only be used for photographs you want to print. If you try and print the 72ppi version the print will literally pixellate and look blurry.
