Are my images of high enough quality to use the iPad app?

16th October 2012

Bob Books photo books are all printed at 300 dpi, therefore the resolution of your images must be 300 dpi. Using images with a larger dpi will not improve your book as our printer is set to print at 300 dpi.

You can still use images that are of a lower resolution, for example Instagram images. When you place them in your book you will see a red warning triangle, you should replace or resize the image. Acceptable images will show a green tick when you tap on the image. 

When you come to place your order a warning pop up message will alert you to any low resolution images. If you are happy to proceed with the low resolution image select 'Order anyway'. will be able to proceed with ordering by ignoring the warning message (below) and proceeding. Where necessary, please correct these images until the warning frame disappears.

Continuing your order with low resolution images can cause your images to appear blurred or pixelated when printed.
