What specific resolution (i.e., pixels) should you expect to get from a photographer’s DVD?
One photographer says hers are “low resolution”, suitable to print up to 8×10. Is this standard, or are other photographers’ ‘high resolution” DVDs higher?

Hi you can´t print a 8×10 in low resolution. I think that a high resolution photo is about 5 megapixels or more…

You don’t want low-res images. Make sure you get hi-res. I work with graphics quite a bit and we consider images 300 dpi (pixels per inch) or more as hi-res.

our photographers gave us both- once CD with email sized low resolution photos and 7 cd’s of the “high resolution” pics.

printed pictures should be a 300pixles (hi-res). Basically this means that if you want to be able to print pictures larger than an 8×10 you can without it being “fuzzy” You do NOT want low-res photos.

Your photographer should have cameras that shoot at least 15 megapixels – if they are real pros, they’ll have 21 megapixel+ cameras. THis should produce huge files, in the 2-5MB range. You can blow those up to way beyond an 8×10 with confidence. If you are only getting pictures that can get an 8×10 enlargement, your photographer either is sizing down the photos so that you have to buy larger prints from them, or is using a sub-par camera.

1. a typical “high resolution” client DVD will be about 300 dpi? or is it typically more?
2. at 300 dpi, you can print an 8×10 without it being fuzzy?
If so then it sounds like this (newbie) photog is just mis-calling her resolution “low-res”, when everyone else is calling it “high-res”. Yes, anything greater than an 8×10 needs to be purchased from her.
