What do you consider high resolution images?

Are you providing client FULL size jpegs or are you downsizing in lightroom on your export.

I'll do full resolution, but will compress just enough so that all of their images fit on one disc.

I was selecting 9 megapixels using Lightroom @300 DPI. I was curious what other photographers are doing.


Thanks for the feedback :)

Good question.. Until now i just delivered the full-sized jpeg
So.. if the image was not cropped it was 18MP on my 5DMK-II but when cropped it could be a bit less (but always > 10MP)
Always wondered if perhaps it was best to just resize all images to say 10MP so for the client
all the images have the same resolution..

I try to figure out how much I have to size down in order to fit everything on a 4GB USB Drive as that's what I deliver to my wedding clients. Usually I do 3600 at 300 DPI but have gone smaller for larger weddings. The smallest I think I've gone is 3200 at 300.

My contract states that anything over 14 inches on the long size needs to be printed through my studio so I never feel the need to give them anything that will print larger than that. But at the same time I know that some clients won't go through my studio to print even if it's in the contract and I still want their print to look decent so I do give them plenty of wiggle room in file size so their prints won't look horrible.

How do you make them take so much space? I rarely get over 1GB of images for 500 of them at Q10/3600px. I guess 5D files are larger, and if you're using Q11/Q12/90%+ that could use bunch of space, probably needlessly.

For Destination Weddings I sometimes deliver upwards of 1,000+ images.

I used to deliver full size, like q90 out of lightroom. but then i had a client with a computer old & slow enough that they apparently had a really hard time viewing them. i guess it really bogged their machine down even just going through them.
i gave her a disk with just 6mb files for everything but the formals, and did those at 10mb, and she had no more problems.

that got me thinking about it more, and i then decided that is how i was going to deliver everyones photos from then out!

no one has ever wanted larger file sizes since either.

Call me stupid, but what do you guys mean with Q10 / Q11 ?
I export the jpgs from lightroom using original resolution and quality 90
Most of the times it fits on a single DVD but for bigger weddings it doesnt.
So really curious what export settings you guys recommend

Photoshop quality is Q1 - Q12. Lightroom expresses it as a percentage, 90% would be around Q11, but it's the same levels - 87% and 90% will give you exactly the same output. Q11 is almost lossless, it's overkill. I tend to do Q10, web stuff at Q7 if I don't use save for web.

There's a good site that shows how the various compression levels, but I don't have it to hand.
