            Okay I'm bad with resolution and am not sure how to tell if it's high, but between my guests and myself we have lots of pics without us in them.

            How can I tell if they are high resolution?

              I think it has to do with how many pixels your picture has, the more pixels, the higher the resolution. Anything greater than 3 megapixels, i would imagine would work for the postcards. not an expert, but somewhat familiar. Thanks!

                When I made my postcard I did a google image search and got some pics that printed great. Unfortunately I didn't save them :o( This is a blurry pic and the color is off, but here is basically how mine turned out:

                Click the image to open in full size.

                    Thanks, I used Prints Made Easy. I got 100 glossy double sided for $29 (the back was a reminder to rsvp to our initial STD). You can make your own or use templates. It was a lot of fun to do and they shipped really fast.

                      Hi just wanted to put in my 2c..you don't need too high of a resolution of a picture for a postcard size print. Typically a pic taken with 2.1 mp digital camera will make a nice 8x10...any larger and you'll get graininess/noise. Resolution is the number that's like 300x600. Most cameras are now 7+ mp and will def produce a nice postcard pic.

                      (megapixels is a count of the number of dots in a certain area...the more the pixels, the finer the print).

                      We used vistaprint for our STD's. We took a picture at a beach in SF, drew the date in the sand and managed to capture a wave lapping near the date. For the side with the text, we used a picture of the lounge at the Mayan Palace set with 50% opacity so you could see the pic in the background.

                      You can also used places like iStockPhoto for a picture of PV, but I'm sure just doing a google image search you'll come up with plenty of options for free!
