Photo size

I have scheduled my first paid photo shoot this weekend; however, I don't know what jpg size to give her. I usually give my friends (free session) the max size for facebook upload. Should I do the same for her? She understands that I won't be providing her photos for print

Re: Photo size

Just my opinion....

Always put your best foot forward... give the best quality you can so they can do with it whatever they want... maybe a wall sized mural is in the works.... things can always be sized down for FB!


Max would be whatever your camera is capable of

minimum would be maybe a 4X6 @ 180 Resolution

for yourself or client save the original and WIP in a lossless format like tiff

Re: Photo size

I think the passport size photo is easy to shoot and develop. I have no problem while making this all. As I am more connected with my work. Anyhow thanks to all here for nice contribution.

Re: Photo size

I dont think that facebook photo size is perfect for all uses. Rather you should ask your friend in which resolution he/she is preferring to have.

I have to agree with you. There are options for facebook. Give your first client the best you can offer.

Re: Photo size

I think you should provide photographs as per the demand of the clients which may vary from size and resolution. For print production, standard DPI must be 300.

Re: Photo size

I agree with pretty much with what has already been remarked here.

My own approach to something like that is, if I offer the photo then I provide the best version of that photo.
At the least provide that FB version but at the best quality permitted.

Who knows, someone on her FB page might see it, note the quality and want one of themselves from you, too, but as a proper portrait.
