What DPI to choose. New to printing
6 months ago

Hey guys,

I always wanted to venture into printing and finally bought a Canon 9500.
I will be printing mainly A4, A3 and A3+
That is 8.27 × 11.69inches, 11.69 × 16.54inches and 13 x 19inches respectively.

Im reading a book (The Digital Negative) to learn things in-depth but there is one question that still boggles me. What DPI should I be using? Images are always minimum 12.3MP.

I get that DPI is calculated based on the relative viewing distance so smaller prints will need higher DPI's and vice versa. However, Google hasn't given me a definitive answer on this.

So guys, what DPI should I be using for A4 and A3+ prints. Any ideas?

Cheers,

Morgan
