@mobjune25: I would ask about printing sizes for the images. I.e. how large can you print low res vs high res.

I 2nd KatNYC2011.  Usually the low res will only print out without being distorted up to a 4×6.  If you are going to want larger prints you may need the High Res. I would ask the photog.

Low resolution is probably for web use. I would find out whether or not you can even print from the low resolution disk.

@KatNYC2011: from a digital artist’s POV, high-res is ALWAYS better.  The quality is far more detailed and you, really, can’t get “too high” of a resolution.  You CAN however get too LOW a resolution.

Think of it this was: low res is like taking a scanned photo and enlarging it 10x’s. It’s gonna get blurry and grainy.

A HIGH RES photo is like taking a large picture (say an 8×10) and doubling it WITHOUT the blurring or graininess occuring.  

Hope that makes some sense….

my suggestion: pay more for the High-Res photos.  You won’t regret it!!!
