You need to specify either pixel dimensions or a combination of PPI AND output size.

 

Here's what I mean:

PPI= Pixels per inch.

DPI= Dots per inch

 

PPI refers to file information.

DPI refers to the number of physical dots put down by the printer.

 

Sometimes, people erroneously call PPI DPI.

 

Here's a hypothetical:

I could give you a file with pixel dimensions of 3600 by 5400.

 

If I gave you a 300PPI file, that would be a 12" by 18" print.

However, I could change the PPI to 360 and suddenly you would have a 10" by 15" print. Your image file hasn't actually changed size: just the output relative to number of pixels.

 

Alternately, I could give you a 300ppi file, but if the file is only 360x540 pixels, you're only getting a 1.8" print.

 

Typically, most printers do best with 240-360ppi. 300ppi is a good standard number that's widely accepted. However, you should specify in any contract, if this is an issue, terms such as that you will be receiving "images suitable to make an 8x10" print at 300ppi." Just the PPI by itself is useless: you could receive 300ppi images unsuitable for anything but a wallet-sized print.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.
