How big can I print a photo from my phone?

The quality of photos taken on your smartphone varies depending on the model of the phone and its camera.

Instagram photos: it’s better to stick to a 4×4 print for photos that have been saved via Instagram. We cannot ensure that an 8×8 photo will print grain or blur-free.

Tip: Many phone camera apps allow you to reduce or increase your camera resolution. Just open your camera’s settings to alter your resolution. Please note that by increasing the resolution on your camera app, any photo you take afterward will take up more space on your phone.
