What resolution do you scan my photos at?

As standard we scan photos at premium quality 600dpi (there is the option to upgrade to 1200dpi during checkout (cost +50%)). 600dpi resolution captures all the original detail of the photo and is suitable for enlarging photos to over twice their original size.

Below are a few examples of the finished digital size of some common photo sizes:

6×4″ = 3600×2400 pixels (8.6 megapixels)
7×5″ = 4200×3000 pixels (12.6 megapixels)
8×6″ = 4800×3600 pixels (17.3 megapixels)
10×8″ = 6000×4800 pixels (28.8 megapixels)
