  8. A photo with a resolution of 28.35 pixels/cm (72 pixels/in.) or less is a very low resolution image. A picture with a resolution between 28.74 pixels/cm (73 pixels/in.) to 47.24 pixels/cm (120 pixels/in.) is a low resolution image. If the book, calendar or card application indicates a photo has a low or very low resolution, the photo will probably not be of acceptable quality when printed.  If you zoomed in on a photo, try zooming out to improve the resolution. You can also replace the photo with a higher resolution image.
