Recommended resolution

We often get questions about resolution.

The recommended resolution for PHOTOPRI is 350ppi.

The resolutions in the table below are permissible values, including the fact that A2 size or larger will be viewed from a certain distance.
Even if the resolution is lower than that, if the number of pixels is satisfied, there are many cases where a pretty beautiful output result can be obtained.

A4 210×297mm 250ppi or more
B4
A3
257×364mm
297×420mm
240ppi or more
B3
A2
364×515mm
420×594mm

  • The resolution will differ depending on the value that the customer seeks, so please judge for yourself.

please note

Even if the original data that does not meet the recommended number of pixels and resolution is enlarged with image editing software, the image quality may deteriorate, but it will never be beautiful.

test print

Just like when you buy a car, you should test drive it once. Before printing, we would like you to use the free trial printing and experience the paper with your own eyes .

Glossy paper, matte paper, fine art paper, Japanese paper, and many other types of paper have different textures, textures, colors, and so on.

Even if you try to choose the best one from many papers, I think it will be difficult all of a sudden. A lot of people don't know which one to choose.

You can use your own photo data for trial printing.

If you have never ordered a large-format print, we also accept orders from one sheet, so please take advantage of it!
