Hey folks when giving clients their images on a DVD do you size them for a particular size for printing or do you leave that upto them?
Cheers

That sort of depends on what you discussed with them before hand. Images I provide on DVD are "low resolution" suitable for sharing online - 1920 x 1280. If youe clients want to be able to get decent prints you'll have to take that into consideration. Resizing the long edge to 3600 pixels is popular.

I used to do 3600px on the longest side, now I just do native camera resolution or whatever's left after I crop. Q10 sRgb jpeg.

Ok great thanks guys. I think I'm going to leave it as per the camera 3:2 ratio. They can print @ 6x4" perfectly and I'll advise to crop to do 7x5" or 10x8".
Thanks again
Paula

1920 x 1280 or no less than 1080 should be fine.

1,920 pixels X 1,280 pixels at 240 DPI digital negatives, I just do some adjustment but not fully retouched. I only retouch if they order prints.
