Hello everyone I have an Etsy shop for selling my photo prints and I am venturing to offer digital downloads for customers to print on their own and my question is what image size should I have my download to be? so there is no quality problems for a small print to a large print

What I have learn is “8″ x 10″ JPEG of your print – for most picture sizes and will be high quality up to around 18″ x 24″ if you want to print larger , 4″ x 6″ prints on 8.5″ x 11″, 5″ x 7″ prints on 8.5″ x 11″

perfect! digital downloads has made hesitate a bit being fresh to the print world because i don’t physically see the finished product and don’t want to give something to a customer mediocre quality, this is great info you gave! thanks!!December 10, 2020 at 1:56 am #237507Nasim MansurovKeymaster
Michael, I guess it depends on how large you want them to be able to print, and at which size. If you want the best quality, extract your images in full resolution.

I agree fully with Nasim. I print up to A1 size on a Canon ImageproGraf 2000 printer. A full resolution file at 300ppi will give a buyer maximum flexibility to print a variety of sizes. However, that may be giving away too much. I would offer two, three or more sizes (each with pixel dimensions to be able to print say, 6×4, 8×10, 11×8.5, 16×12 at 300ppi) at different price points. If the customer wants more pixels to make bigger prints, he/she should be prepared to pay more.December 13, 2020 at 2:10 pm #237514BettyParticipant
@ Anthony Constantinou Not so. If you supply an image sized for a high quality 8×10 that’s what the customer will get. Larger prints from the same file will be inferior. Smaller prints than 8×10 will of course be possible at equally high quality.
