Hi blazer!

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.
