>Image geometry & Print sizes:
The available sizes for ArtSlant prints are based on the size of the original digital image provided by the artist. In order to produce superior quality prints, please review the following information on image geometry and print sizes.
In our Print program, the buyer can select a number of different options for print sizing, paper or canvas, and framing. ArtSlant requires that each selling artist provide images that are at least 2340 pixels on one side, so as to produce a print that is at least 20" in height or width. This requirement is based on buyer demand for large-size prints. You need to take photos of your work with a good camera, approximately 8 megapixels capacity or higher.
Here's a basic chart to help you calculate print sizing - it shows you the minimum size of the digital image required to produce the following prints:
- Petite 8” X 10” - one side must be at least 1500 pixels
- Small 11” X 14” - one side must be at least 2100 pixels
- Medium 16” X 20” - one side must be at least 3000 pixels
- Large 24” X 30” - one side must be at least 4500 pixels
- Grande 30” X 40” - one side must be at least 6000 pixel
The largest print we can produce is 42x90 inches for prints on paper. Canvas prints only go to 38x45 inches. Of course, this depends upon your image size. You can use a camera with 8 megapixel or higher resolution to take pictures of your work. Images can be up to 25 MB.
