D.P.I- Dots per inch in technical terms is the space between number of individual colored dots that make up your print. As a general rule your camera should be set to 150 d.p.i . Your D.P.I will change when you change the image settings in your camera settings. The larger the image the greater the d.p.i.. 72 d.p.i can still produce large acrylic prints but it really depends on other factors as well. We can always help you.
Pixel- Will give you the size of your image. Since we print at 150 divide your pixels by 150 to give you the size in inches. So a photo that is 2000-300o pixels will be 13-20 inches. We can always increase 15-20 percent without causing pix-elation . Again, these rules are not set in stone just a guideline. Send us what you have and we will let you know. To find out the pixel on your image- right click your image- CLICK details, then on the top CLICK properties.
