In this day and age a lot more people are using digital cameras to take photos. It is certainly a lot more convenient and cheaper than the traditional film camera.
Whenever you go to buy a digital camera, the sales assistant will probably tell you that you need a camera with a lot of megapixels to take the best photos – 6 megapixels and above are now common place for consumer level cameras. Whilst it is true to some extent, we are going to explore how you use the image files from your Digital Camera.
If you are taking your images primarily for printing or to get developed at your local photo lab, then you need to ensure that your camera is configured to take the pictures at its maximum resolution and quality. At maximum quality the file size will increase. Typically a 4 megapixel image will be around 1.4 Meg in size. But let’s face it, the cost of flash cards has decreased in recent times and the lack of space on your memory card shouldn’t be a consideration for not taking the highest quality images your camera is capable of.
