What is a high quality photo?

We don't want to get too technical here because, let's face it, not all of us are budding photographers! The easiest way to explain high-quality photos is with examples. If you have ever tried to print an image that you downloaded from Facebook or Instagram, you may have noticed that not every photo prints out as expected. It's an easy mistake to make as what looks good on your smartphone or screen might look blurry or pixelated when blown up to a larger size. This distortion occurs when there is a resolution issue. Every image or photo has a resolution. It's just the number of pixels it is wide, multiplied by the number of pixels it is tall.

NOTE: When we talk about our "examples", we are not referring to photos that are taken in low light or out of focus. Photos with these conditions, will not adhere to these same rules and will most likely result in a low-quality photo print no matter what!
