What's 1000 pixels?

Postby sandymae2000 on Tue Aug 21, 2007 5:57 am


Pardon my stupid amateur question, but does 1000 pixels mean one side of the photo has to be 1000 or the two sides multiplied together should equal 1000? (or some other thing?)

My unofficial take on it:

The minimum number of pixels permitted on any side is 1000.

pixels refer to points of light that are in a photo.A mega-pixel is one thousand pixels so when they say 1000 pixels that is 1 mega-pixel

A megapixel is approximately 1 million pixels - ie 1024 X 1024. The 1000 pixel limit is a lower limit, ie. your image has to be bigger than 100x10 pixels for example.

Is allWisdom correct? I have a couple of shots I'd like to submit but they are 640 by 480. If they get rejected because the size is not acceptable, do they count towards the three strikes limit?

A picture under 1000 pixels and 300 dots per inch is useless to buyers. The resolution is not good enough for print. It does NOT help to save the small picture into a bigger one. That will destroy it too. When taking fotos, choose the biggest size you can.
