Obituary Photo Tips
- Select a photo that was shot in natural light without a flash. These are usually the most clear and flattering.
- Remember that these photos are relatively small, so be sure the photo is of the individual’s face and with minimal shadows.
- Photos from websites are usually too small to print well, even if they look fine on the screen. Images need to be high resolution to avoid looking fuzzy in print.
- A photo should be no less than 150 dpi at the size it will print. The ideal is 220dpi. Most digital cameras (and some smart phones) set to a medium resolution, will produce acceptable images.
- You will be able to crop your image when you build your notice. Choose an image that has enough background, all around the individuals, face, so that you may crop the image in a flattering way.
