Thank you for the links, XnTriq.

The Ken Watson ones are what put me on to the idea that the dpi isn't the main thing that matters - except to keep the print shop happy.

I'll check out the other ones. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum, fairyhedgehog :-)

Printers should say: Photos must be delivered with enough pixels, so that they can be printed at minimally 300 dpi (actually ppi, px/inch).
