    I recently (today) shot a private wedding. It was very simple, fast and to the point. There were only six people involved including myself and the priest. I shot in Raw with my Canon Rebel Xti I took a little over 100 images and a few of them are good with out cropping, But I can make a whole lot more with cropping. My question is if I want to keep the size and the quality, uniform through out the gallery and print sizes, what are the basics for image size and resolution.

    My Raw to Jpeg Width: 3888 Height: 2592 in pixels. Document Size: Width: 16.2 Height: 10.8 in Inches @ 240 resolution pixels/inch.

    I hope my question makes sense, it kinda does to me.

    Basically just trying to find out the average max print people expect in a package so don't edit below that quality.

    thanks in advance tjd.

    For web display:
    72dpi and an height of 600px should be maximum.

    For print and quality clients should receive:
    Maximum resolution (240dpi in your case) and maximum dimensions (3888x2592 in your case)

    You should always edit in the highest quality and resolution so that you may re-size it down for lower quality viewing if you wish.

    I hope that answers your questions?...

    but what if I want to crop? how small is too small? and I want to keep the size uniform landscape and portrait. If they ask for bigger I might have it i Might not.

    Put together your proof gallery and then tell the customer what the various printing crops are, and ask them what images they want cropped to what size.
