Print IT!

Here’s the simple math on “megapixels”

3 will make an outstanding 8 x 10 print

6 to crop deep inside a Jpeg for making an outstanding 8 x 10 print

Jpegs from a 2 megapixel camera average 1 MB

Jpegs from a 12 megapixel camera can be over 10 MB

Pictures posted on Facebook are no more than 150 KB (unless you choose the high resolution slower option)

Eye-popping photography does not jump off the wall until it is printed! 🙂
