"D7000 Image Resolution?"

I wanted to compare a 5x7 print from my HP printer with the same size print from Sam’s. I downloaded the photo (see the attachment) to Sam’s. On Sam’s order form it states that, “this resolution is not recommended for this size print”. Does anyone know what this means.

TIA

GaryS

Your attached image is 1000 x 662 pixels, so two things come to mind...

Firstly, you have the wrong aspect ratio to print the whole image on a 7 x 5 paper. 1000 x 662 would translate to 7 x 4.63 inches.

Secondly, although I'm not familiar with Sam's, most print shops like to have around 300 ppi (pixels per inch) to work with. To be printed at 7 x 5 the image would need to measure 2100 x 1500 pixels.

Thanks for the response. I will adjust the pixels as you have suggested and try to upload again.
