Tech Tip!

How much camera resolution is really necessary?

This is important only for prints & determining
the size of prints desired.

Below are examples of megapixels needed for various print sizes.


4 megapixel = 8 X 10

5 megapixel = 11 X 14

6 megapixel = 13 X 19

8 megapixel = 16 X 20

10 –12 megapixel = 24 X 36

36 megapixel = 30 X 40+

There are only 3 colors, 10 digits,
 & 7 notes: it's what we do with them that's important!


People may forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel!

Truth can be harsh, but it can also be helpful!


Failure is the chance to do better next time!
