Does Size Matter?


When it comes to the size of your photos that is!

This is the first in a series of posts to help you understand sizing in regards to your photos as digital images. They will be as short and sweet and to the point as possible, to help you understand this form of imagery.

If you think that purchasing high resolution files from a recent photo session is your best option, think again. There might be a few things you need to understand about high resolution images before you make that choice.

High resolution images can be large to very large files, and in most cases will be too large to send through email to friends and family members as a collection of images. They need to be resized to smaller images if you want to share them this way.

High resolution images are not needed to share online through social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest or other image album sharing space. Unless you are concerned about zooming in very close on details, a lower size image is all you need.

High resolution images are used mostly for printing purposes, not online viewing.

Most people who request high resolution images end up using only a few of them for printing photos. The rest of the time they are kept stored on your hard drive, unused.

Is it really worth it for you to have high resolution images alone?

It's like buying a high end camera and using it only in "auto mode".

It's like purchasing a top of the line computer to send emails.

It's like owning all the tools you need to finally finish remodeling your basement, and then hiring a professional to do it for you.

It's like purchasing a $600 pair of shoes that you wear twice a year. (Wait...this is acceptable...am I right ladies?) Scratch that.

Get my point?

The main reason why someone would need high resolution images is for printing or displaying larger sized images. If you think your best option for printing photos is purchasing high resolution images, think again. More in the next post on printing photos...
