Thanks

i went on smugmug and looked

You can buy digital downloads at the sizes your photographer has made available, which may include the following:

A 1Mpix image is roughly 1 megapixel in size. For example, an 816x1224 image is 998,784 pixels. Divide that by 1 million and you get .998784 (just under 1 Megapixel).

A 4Mpix image is 4 megapixels. This is approximately twice as tall and twice as wide as a 1MPix image. Example. It should allow for quality printing at most reasonable sizes. If you want to print at really large poster sizes, you would probably want a larger image.

so that might be a good place to start?

720 pixels on the longest side ... it's the max size facebook uses. Most of the time your customer is going to upload them to FB, so I want them not to be resized.

Good thinking - thanks! I do like the new larger FB size.
