The higher the resolution, the better photos will print.
We'll help put your best print forward with some hints:
- Large size products such as Posters and Canvases need higher resolution photos than small projects.
Choose Full Resolution under Image Size in the uploader for large products.
- Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr photos are much smaller than photos from most digital cameras.
The resolution are usually too low for large projects, but are perfectly fine for small products like 10 x 15cm prints, mugs, or smaller photos in photo books or large print collages.
- Snapping shots with a digital camera?
You can manually adjust the photo resolution of your cammera, as you go. Select the highest resolution possible if you are interested in a large format print or poster
- We always check the photo resolution before you order a product.
If we think the photo isn't large enough to meet the Snapfish standard, you?ll see a warning telling you that the image resolution is too low for the size of the photo space you are adding the image to, and the printed image may appear blurry or pixelated.
You can click the button to choose a different photo, or you can click the X in the upper right corner to ignore the warning.
Important: If you ignore the warning, a small yellow icon will appear in the lower right corner of the (like the one on the right, and below), so the image will appear blurry unless you reduce the image size in the project. You can correct the problem two ways:
- Select a different Layout that contains smaller photo spaces, and dragging the photo to a smaller space.
- Reduce the size of the particular photo within the project and by selecting the photo and dragging a corner inward toward the center. At a certain size the image warning will go away.
Many of your smaller images may not be good for large projects, but they can still be used in a smaller form, especially for collages.
