    Hi Bill and Glenna: I use this formula to determine what resolution to set my camera to get photos that will print at 300 dpi and perhaps save the editor some

      Hi Bill and Glenna:
      I use this formula to determine what resolution to set my camera to get photos
      that will print at 300 dpi and perhaps save the editor some work. I would appreciate hearing from you to see if I'm on the right track. It looks like over 3 millioon totalpoilxels will work.
      The calculations are for my Nikon D-70. Any one can do this for their own camera. Would this work for you?

      Photo size = Number of pixels (Calculate horizontal and vertical dimensions)
      300 dpi

      Image Size 300 x 450 pixels. Image Size 2240 x 1488 pixels OTHER CAMERA
      Total Pixels 135,000 Total Pixels 3,333,120
      300/300 = 1 inch. 1488/300 = 4.96 inches.
      450/300 = 1.5 inches 2240/300 = 7.46 inches
      Print size 1” x 1.5” Print size 4.95 x 7.46”

      Nikon from here on.
      Image Size 1504 x 1000 pixels. Image Size 3008 x 2000 Total Pixels 1,504,000 Total Pixels 6,016,000
      1504/300 = 5.01 inches. 3008/300 = 10.2 inches
      1000/300 = 3.30 inches. 2000/300 = 6.66 inches
      Print size 3.3” x 5.01” Print size 6.6 x 10.2”
