How large can I print?

How large can I print?

You can use the table below as a general guide to the pixel dimensions needed for printing. The table will show you how many pixels are in a specific print size across various print resolutions, and will help you answer the question of, ‘How large can I print my file?’
NOTE: You may not find your exact pixel dimensions here. This table is intended to give you at least a rough idea.
We would like to receive print files that are a minimum of 180 pixels per inch.
We added what we think are all the standard options. Be aware this is a guide. About the camera megapixels, the print sizes are showing the recommended maximum sizes by experience.
