When working with Bulk Orders, we always suggest proofing your order first. A proof will give you the opportunity to review your margins, image quality, spelling, etc, and edit if desired. It ensures you know exactly what you will receive when the production is completed. If a proof is waived we will not be able to print re-orders due to concerns with the uploaded file or pictures (ex: a spelling mistake, content trimmed or folded that's under the crop-guides, poor picture quality, blurry or pixelated images due to low dpi, 3-piece spine, spine-text not aligned properly, unsatisfactory pdf results due to software - see: our PDF Specs, which is why a proof is so highly recommended.

Best ratio for photos

by Peter Campbell, 04 Dec 2011 (21:59 UTC)
Hi Team, I have just purchased a new camera which allows me to select the ratio size for the photos that I 'll take. It can be 16:9 or 4:3 ( plus others). I understand that the 16:9 ratio will be best when displaying my photos on a widescreen TV . I'm just checking if that ration ( 16:9 ) will reproduce well in the printed books that you do. If I set the camera to the 16:9 ration is there an optimum book size that I should use for PrestoPhoto to make my books. Hope this makes sense. Kind regards Peter

Re: Best ratio for photos

Hi Peter,

Our 3:2 ratio is our widest ratio, but unfortunately has the fewest books choices. Our advice would be to choose the ratio on your camera that offers the maximum pixel dimensions. Most sensors in cameras are either 3:2 (professional) or 4:3 (consumer). The 16:9 and 3:2 ratios on many cameras are frequently just a cropped 4:3 image - so it is actually *smaller* than a 4:3. It would be best to capture as many pictures as possible, and then decide on your own cropping later. Check your camera manual for details, and take a few examples to check.

Does that help?

Image Size & DPI

by Ruth, 03 Jun 2011 (15:29 UTC)
I have uploaded all my pictures into the photo project. They are low dpi but very large in size. I know you say that i should upload them as 300 dpi but the overall size of the images are 10-15mb so are very large.

Does your software shrink down the image, so will it appear higher dpi?

Re: Image Size & DPI

by Ruth, 03 Jun 2011 (16:51 UTC)
Greetings Ruth,

Thank you for your question!

Most image formats like JPEG and PNG simply have fixed resolution that is raw pixel dimensions, like 2550x3300. If you print those pixels in a defined area, say 8.5" x 11", you will see you now have 2550 pixels / 8.5" = 300 pixels per inch, or "ppi". Similarly, 3300 pixels / 11" = 300 ppi.
For modern digital printers, "pixels" and "dots" are equivalent.
Some formats, like TIFF and PDF have dimensions *and* resolution.

Browsing through your gallery most of your photos seem fine to go to print. Even if they come shy of 300 dpi. Once images get over 150, the printer does a great job quality. The visual difference between 250dpi and 300dpi for example is almost indistinguishable.

My Angel and me

I just created a picture book and it says I have low DPI. Is this going to be a problem? Also I go to "My Projects" and my book is a black square. I can't seem to see what it will look like.

Re: My Angel and me

by PrestoPhoto Support, 20 Apr 2011 (16:44 UTC)
Anne,

If your DPI is too low then the pictures won't turn out very well. We recommend them to be at 300dpi. What are yours? It seems you just need to upload a cover :)

If you have anymore questions send us a note at support@prestophoto.com

Thanks!
