High Resolution Stock Photography

If you create printed material, you'll definitely need high-resolution files when it comes to utilizing stock photography. Web design and multimedia presentations require low-resolution files (72 dpi) but print output needs more data (300 dpi) to be print clearly. If you are creating glossy brochures, business cards, print ads, or any other type of communication pieces requiring high resolution stock photography you really should take heed. Stock photography sites, like PhotoSpin.com, often have the file sizes you need, just be sure to choose the correct resolution required otherwise you’ll be disappointed with the final result.

PhotoSpin offers two subscription based royalty free stock photography services, both offer high resolution files. The Super subscription offers some of the biggest file sizes available in the industry with 300 dpi output up to 17 inches on the long side. The Plus subscription offers a smaller price and a smaller file but still substantial enough for most print needs with the exception of signage. Also, unique to PhotoSpin is the fact that they include fonts and illustrations within their subscription offerings. Both services also include the low-resolution files so you only download what you need at any given time.

The Place to Find High Resolution Stock Photography
With 20,000 unique photos, illustrations and fonts, and more being added monthly, at a cost of as little as a $1 per day, you’ll soon find out why PhotoSpin subscribers stick with PhotoSpin year after year. Print, Web, and Multimedia (1024 x 768 pixels) screen resolutions are all available for a single annual fee, whenever and as often as subscribers want to download.

PhotoSpin has always offered high resolution files within their subscription services. The deciding factor is how big do you really need to output a stock photograph? If you’re only printing up to 8 ½ by 11 inches (standard printing) then the Plus subscription suits your needs just fine. However, if you continually create tabloid sized publications or have needs for large format digital printing or even large signage, then the Super subscription may be a better fit for you. Both services offer all files at 300 dpi (high resolution), 150 dpi, and 72 dpi.
