Public Service Announcement!! Subject: High Resolution Photos
Hi Folks! Just wanted to offer my thoughts on the photos I require for my portrait work. For the very best results you will need to submit high resolution images. The images may look great on your screen, but I print them. Should I have to crop them to zoom in closer on the subject; they HAVE to be high resolution. IF the image becomes fuzzy/pixelated, I will have to be guessing on contours, markings, colour - then your portrait is not accurate. SO: When taking photos with a camera or device, and you capture good shots, SAVE your original on your computer. Always keep your original images untouched & saved, only resize and (“save as”) as need be. The majority of photos I get from Facebook are generally too small. I would love to have 500KB or larger. If I get a 50KB image with good lighting and I do not have to crop it, it may be usable.
Example: an original 5+ MB (2:3 ratio) image is 4752px x 3168px, a 33.5KB image is 150px x 100px. Summary: The more pixels - the finer the detail and the sharper the image. The better the photo the better the portrait. Thanks for your interest! ... See MoreSee Less
