‘Photo Quality’ Print Resolution

A fairly standard output resolution for “photo quality” digital printing is 300 dpi. However, if the image is not too finely detailed, if it will be printed on low quality paper such as newsprint, or if it wiill be viewed from a distance, you may be able to get away with a dpi as low as 200.

You can always resample down (from more resolution to less) but you typically lose image quality by interpolating up. So if you’re shooting for print, capture at the highest quality your camera settings allow: High, Best, Fine, or whatever your system calls it…
