    Hey everyone, I'm submitting digital photos to surf magazines, and most of the prereq's for submission is making the file a 7 x 7 inch physical print size. I was wondering how I would do this. How many pixels it might be? And basically what this all means haha. Thanks!

    I'm not sure what the standard is more magazines (or that one in particular) but if I was making a 7x7 print, I'd want it to be 2100x2100 pixels. That's 300 pixels per inch.

    You should double check with them that they are printing at 300 DPI. Sending them the wrong size might mean extra work for them, and cause them to not want to use your photo. You can send a query letter as to file specs, and I'm sure they'd be more than happy to reply. Check the website also. They might have a section for photographers, or for submissions, which gives this info.
