Specifications for Digital Images

Digital Photo Tips

Use at least an 8MP Digital Camera to take your photos. Keep the background clean to avoid distracting the eye from the person in the photo. Make sure the lighting is good and backlight your subject to emphasize dimensionality. Set your camera at the highest quality resolution, instead of just changing the size and dpi, as this will make the image grainy and unprintable.
