So we got married last month and I picked up the photos from the photographer yesterday. As part of our contract, we are suppose to get high resolution photos on a USB drive with no watermarks.
Now my photography knowledge is very limited, so maybe I’m a bit confused. When I got home I opened up one of the photos in Photoshop and saw that they are only 240 DPI. I always thought high resolution photos have higher DPIs than that. However the picture dimensions are 5047×3368 pixels.
Does anyone know if this counts as high resolution? One of the reasons why we picked this photographer was that he could provide us with watermark free high resolution digital files of our photos so that we can develop the photos ourselves. I don’t want to chase after them though if this is high resolution.

So resolution is kind of a tricky thing. You can have photos that are a higher dpi than that, but most printers won’t pick it up. 300dpi or 600dpi is common to see, but unless you’re getting it produced in an extreme high quality environment. Likely if you’re developing photos yourself, you won’t be able to notice the difference.
It depends on what kind of camera he’s shooting with; there are plenty of cameras that will shoot at a higher resolution than that, but likely that’s the photo size he shot with initially so he can’t give you anything bigger.
The images he provided to you are appoximately 14×21 if printed. So it’s totally a decent size to be considered high-res!

Thank you! 😀
We’re not playing on blowing up really big so 14×21 is pretty good. Glad to hear it’s high resolution! <3
