Photo Quality Tips

The higher the resolution, the better the print.

Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr photos are much smaller than photos from most digital cameras.

The resolution on Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr photos is usually too low for large projects, but is fine for small products like 4x6 or 4x5.3 prints.

We check the photo resolution before you order a product.

Images you preview may appear as lower resolution and do not reflect what will be printed. If we think the photo resolution isn't high enough to meet the Amazon Photos standards, you'll see a warning telling you the image resolution is too low, and the printed image may appear blurry or pixilated.

My photo has low resolution. How do I fix it?

To ensure quality prints, choose a smaller size print for images that show the low resolution warning.
