Images edited on BeFunky can be saved with a maximum resolution of 4088x4088px with a pixel density of 300 dpi (Dots Per Inch). When you upload an image larger than 4088x4088px it will be resized during the upload process, while smaller images will maintain their resolution.
If you are printing your image, you'll most likely want it in a specific aspect ratio such as 5x7in, 10x15cm, etc. The aspect ratio is based on the paper size of your print and doesn't reflect the resolution or quality of your image. There is a simple math equation to find out the resolution of a high quality image at any given aspect ratio. Here's an example using a standard 5"x7" aspect ratio:
5" X 300dpi = 1500px
7" X 300dpi = 2100px
For quick reference, here's a chart that converts inches to pixels at a pixel density of 300dpi for common print sizes:
|3.5” x 5”||1050px x 1500px|
|4” x 6”||1200px x 1800px|
|5” x 7”||1500px x 2100px|
|6” x 10”||1800px x 3000px|
|8” x 10”||2400px x 3000px|
|8.5” x 11”||2550px x 3300px|
|11” x 11”||3300px x 3300px|
|12” x 12”||3600px x 3600px|
If you're working with European sizes (A0-A10), you'll first need to convert centimeters to inches (2.54:1). This is because the standard in pixel density (dpi) uses the US customary system of measurement. Here's an example using a standard A4 (21x29.7cm) aspect ratio (pixel dimensions are rounded up):
(21cm/2.54) x 300dpi = 2481px
(29.7cm/2.54) X 300dpi = 3508px
For quick reference, here's a chart that converts centimeters to pixels at a pixel density of 300dpi for common print sizes:
|9cm x 13cm||1063px x 1536px|
|10.5cm x 14.8cm (A6)||1240px x 1748px|
|13cm x 19cm||1536px x 2244px|
|14.8cm x 21cm (A5)||1748px x 2481px|
|18cm x 25cm||2126px x 2953px|
|21cm x 39.7cm (A4)||2481px x 3508px|
|24cm x 30cm||2835px x 3544px|
Important Notes about DPI:
- DPI is not currently saved when exporting as PNG.
- The DPI for exported photos will be the same as the DPI of the original image. This can be up to 300 DPI in the Photo Editor.
- Printers can be set to override DPI in the metadata of an image and print at a higher DPI than saved.
