Digital Photography Made Simple
My return to CT Style to demystify digital photography:
Do you know the size of the image you want? Are you printing it or only sending it over the Internet? Here's a guide for choosing the resolution (dpi = dots per inch):
640 dpi - for Internet use only
1024 dpi - Internet, as well as wallet-size prints
1280 dpi - Internet and any size up to and including 4 x 6 prints
1600 dpi - Internet and prints as large as 8 x 12
We didn't get a chance to talk about how important it is to back up your photos. Remember there are no negatives to hang on to for safe keeping. Take a look at Picture This (Chapter 18 p. 251) for all of the nitty gritty on camera settings and backing up your photos.
