Print Quality & Resolution

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:

Aspect Ratio Resolution
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:

Aspect Ratio Resolution
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
