Quality Guidelines
 
The quality of print from your digital camera or other digital file will depend largely upon the size of the image. Getting the right image size/quality setting on your camera is crucial to getting the most from your purchase. Image size directly relates to the number of pixels you capture with each shot. Image quality relates to how much compression is used on the resulting image file. Learn about quality settings and how many images you can fit on your memory card.
 
Using image manipulation software to increase the size of the file, will not increase its ability to print at a larger size. The critical factor is how many pixels were captured originally.

If you have a 640 x 460 image that you want printed, you can still get a good quality image by printing at 5x3.5". Quality of the photo will also depend on the quality of the camera and how much light is in the shot as digital cameras are notriously bad in low light. If it looks good on your computer and at least fills your computer screen, then we should be able to give you a good print.
 
Minimum Resolutions
Warnings are provided in our system for images below the recommended minimum for your selected print size. If you choose to overide this warning we can no longer guarantee the quality of your print. The optimum print resolution is 200dpi as shown for each print size below. Although the Frontier can print at 300 dpi, the visible difference between 200dpi and 300dpi for most prints is not great.

How long will my photos last?
All our photos are produced on the latest Fujifilm Frontier 370 digital lab using a true photographic process. This work by exposing red, green and blue laser light onto professional photographic paper at 300 DPI (dots per inch). The fade resistance of our prints is rated at 150 years. Compare this to Inkjet printing at 2 years and Thermal at 10 years. Find out more about the technology behind the Fuji Frontier
We provide prints that won't let your memories fade.

 
Help with brightness and calibration
An image that looks bright and clear on the screen should produce a superb print. An image that is dark or dull on the screen may produce a disappointing print. However, most digital cameras produce excellent quality images that will never need any form of adjustment.
Click here to see our calibration image. You may use this to calibrate your monitor for best printing results.

Please be assured that we print from the original JPEG files that you upload to us. We don't compress or reduce your files in order to save storage space as some other companies do.

No Crop

Cropping Advice
You should select a print size that matches the aspect ratio of your original image. Our default print size is 6"x4.5" which matches the shape of most digital camera images. If the print shape and image shape are different then some cropping will occur.
By checking the "no crop" box on Step 2 of the order process you can choose to fit the image into the selected paper size. This will shrink the image and surround it by white space. Choosing the no crop option means none of your image will be cropped.
