Use High Resolution ImagesJust because it looks good on your computer screen doesn’t mean it’s hi-res. You can’t tell by the length-width dimensions, either. Heavy file size can be a clue, but not in all cases. The best way is to open up the picture in an image program and view the file properties. You don’t need a fancy program to do this; most computers come with a basic image editing program that will do the trick.Lo-res images have around 72-pixels, or squares of color, per inch. This makes them great for the web, because that's all your computer screen will display, anyhow.Plus, they are very lightweight (fewer pixels), so they help websites load quickly. Hi-res images are at least 300 pixels per inch (ppi) and what you want for print.Knowing if your images are lo-res or high-res will determine whether your company logo or images look fuzzy vs. crystal clear.3
