File Sizes and Usage Help

Don't know what size photo to purchase?

We offer three different sizes, so that you may choose the appropriate size based on your intended purpose for the photo.

LookLagoon Stock Photo Size Guide

All measurements including dimensions and file sizes are approximate. File sizes may vary depending on the individual photo. Pixels indicate the size of each photo, while inches and cm are useful for determining the maximum print size at 300 dpi.  

LARGE: FOR WEB OR PRINT USE

At 300 dpi, our large photos are ideal for use on websites, blogs and full screen business presentations. This size is also excellent for full page prints under 8" x 12.1" which may encompass printed material such as brochures, flyers, business cards or postcards.

X-LARGE: FOR WEB OR PRINT USE

At 300 dpi, our x-large photos are best suited for high quality printing, for example book covers, magazines or posters. See below for more information about printing posters.

SUPREME: FOR WEB OR PRINT USE

At 300 dpi, our supreme photos are ideal for large, top quality prints such as posters or those found in traditional magazines. Please keep in mind that posters are generally printed at a lower dpi than this, meaning the maximum print size can increase past 13.3" x 20". Check with your printer to determine your specific dpi requirements. 

(For example, posters are sometimes printed at 200 dpi and often lower. If printing at 200 dpi, our supreme size photo with an approximate pixel count of 4000 x 6000 may be printed at poster size 20" x 30". The pixel count width and height were divided by 200 to give the approximate print size. This is a generalization, and your needs may differ. Check with your printer for the specific size requirements that will give you optimal printing.)

 

Note: In photography, dpi (dots per inch) and ppi (pixels per inch) are often used interchangeably, although technically they have slightly different meanings. To simply things, we are using the term dpi.
