Home / High Resolution vs. Low Resolution

High Resolution or High-Res is a file that is intended to be used for print publications.

These files are typically the print size with a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi). (I.E. if the image is to appear in a catalog as a 5" x 7" the file size would typically be a 5" x 7" and 300 dpi or larger).

Low Resolution or Low-Res is a file that is intended to be used for web only applications. These files are typically 72 or 96 dpi.

High Resolution images can be purchased for University projects with a valid NIU account number. For prices and questions please contact Wade Duerkes at 753-6669.
