Photo resolutions

Hey Saul,

I have a few photos I’m proud of and would like to enter one of those. Sadly though, I don’t think that any of the digital photos I posses would meet the required resolution of 2280 x 3165. Is the competition really intended for forum members that have high res 4K digital cameras?

I had a look at the details of a photo I took earlier on my iPhone 11 Pro that has a 12 megapixel camera.

According to the details of the photo it’s actually higher then 3165 x 2280 (w x h) specified. I’m no expert on digital photography though so if I’m missing something about this do let me know.

I can give the printer a call if we need to clarify anything with them directly.

Ah, OK, that makes sense thanks.

I’m no expert either and perhaps my photos are a higher resolution than I initially thought. :+1:

On the iPhone you view the pic in the Photo app and seipe up. If you have an Android phone you do this, apparently.

  1. Open the Gallery app and locate the photo you want to check.
  2. Tap on the photo to open it, then tap on the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the screen.
  3. Select Details or Info from the menu that appears.
  4. The resolution of the photo should be displayed in the form of width x height (in pixels).

Just did that on my Android phone. Photo was 4000x3000 pixels.

No idea what all this means :point_up_2:t3: but if i send you a photo can you cover the number plate for me, I don’t ever worry about showing my numberplate-don’t think cloning is a massive issue with bikes anyhoo.

Yeah, I posted a photo but retracted it because I hadn’t covered the number plate… I can blank it off… But it looks pants… I’m working on a way of altering the numbers so it doesn’t look Shiite

Rule 8a* only yellow numberplates to be covered :joy:

Note, in general, you can’t necessarily go by claimed megapixels as a lot of manufacturers lie. E.g. on my Nokia they say the 3000x4000 image camera is 48 megapixel, I assume they would justifying the claim by counting the red, blue and 2 green sensors for each pixel as separate ‘pixels’. Not something you see for proper cameras (that I’m aware of).

Yeah, that sounds like marketing people taking a liberty. Most modern camera/phones from the last few generations should be fine, I believe.

Only one entry (picture) per person, @Joe.
