Pixels and Inches and Dimensions...

We get a lot of questions for those of you creating backgrounds in art class with Photoshop, or trying to determine if the image of your school will fit on a full page.

Here's a handy chart which gives dimensions in pixels and the size in inches that image (at 300ppi of course!) will print.

 

"Standard" yearbook pictures - slightly-smaller-than-wallet size, are usually 640 x 480 or 2.13" x 1.6".

If you're working with a Graduating class, you may want to use a larger, true wallet size image, which is 800 x 600.

Of course we have templates for either of those in School Annual Online or you can edit a template to utilize that size.

 

Check your Image Library on the Details tab of any image - you'll see both pixels and the Max Size in inches listed for your own reference.

The max upload size of an image is 10000 x 10000 pixels.
