Megapixels vs. Print Size – How Big Can You Print?

The first thing that people like to find out about a digital camera is it’s megapixels. It seems there’s some sort of megapixels fetish that consumes the world of digital photography. Unlike popular believe, however, megapixels is not the be-all-and-end-all of digital photography. Unless of course you’re planning to print giant billboards it does not matter whether you’re shooting with a Canon 5Ds or with a D3200.

However having said that some photographers who shoot professional photos and want their pictures to be able to retain a lot of detail even when cropping would love the idea of being able to shoot with 24 megapixels or even 36 megapixels.

Which paper is best for photography prints

As a photographer, the first creative process is taking a photo as perfect as you can get it, your second maybe some post production editing, the third and most crucial part of the artistic process, in terms of professional presentation is the printing stage. There is no point taking a brilliant photo, fine tuning it, and then printing it out on some cheap, unflattering paper that doesn’t do all your hard work any justice! So, whether you are prepping for an exhibition, a hanging space, or selling prints of your work, it is important to know what your best printing options are, in terms of professional photographic paper types and the finishing processes available for showing off your final image.

[Reply from Robert Giordano]Strictly speaking in terms of pixels per inch, with no post editing, an 8x10 @ 300ppi is (8x300) x (10x300), or 7,200,000 pixels (7MP).

Optimizing Digital Photo Enlargment. Digital photo enlargement to several times its original 300 PPI size, while still retaining sharp detail, is perhaps the ultimate goal of many interpolation algorithms.

Optimizing Digital Photo Enlargment

Despite this common aim, enlargement results can vary significantly depending on the resize software, sharpening and interpolation algorithm implemented. The problem arises because unlike film, digital cameras store their detail in a discrete unit: the pixel. Any attempt to magnify an image also enlarges these pixels — unless some type of image interpolation is performed. Move your mouse over the image to the right to see how even standard interpolation can improve the blocky, pixelated appearance. Before proceeding with this tutorial, know that there is no magic solution; the best optimization is to start with the highest quality image possible. Recall that all non-adaptive interpolation algorithms always face a trade-off between three artifacts: aliasing, blurring and edge halos.

HARDWARE vs. Basics of Digital Camera Pixels. The continuous advance of digital camera technology can be quite confusing because new terms are constantly being introduced.

Basics of Digital Camera Pixels

This tutorial aims to clear up some of this digital pixel confusion — particularly for those who are either considering or have just purchased their first digital camera. Concepts such as sensor size, megapixels, dithering and print size are discussed. Every digital image consists of a fundamental small-scale descriptor: THE PIXEL, invented by combining the words "PICture ELement. " Just as how pointillist artwork uses a series of paint blotches, millions of pixels can also combine to create a detailed and seemingly continuous image. Each pixel contains a series of numbers which describe its color or intensity. The Print Handbook (2nd Edition) – The Print Handbook Store. Never make a print mistake again.

Toolbox - Photography Printing Guide - DPI vs PPI

Even though "dots per inch" (dpi) and "pixels per inch" (ppi) are used interchangeably by many, they are not the same thing. Traditional printing methods use patterns of dots to render photographic images on a printed page. While pixels on a monitor are square and in contact with the adjacent pixels, printed dots have space between them to make white, or no space between them to make black.

Color photographs are printed using four inks, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (CMYK), and four separate dot patterns, one for each ink. Toolbox - Photography Printing Guide - DPI vs PPI. Megapixels Comparison and Maximum Print Size Charts.
