ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DOWNLOADING YOUR DIGITAL IMAGES!
Understanding digital images and which size is right for you can be a little confusing, so I want to break it down for you and give you all the information you need when choosing and ordering your digital images!
Web size images are much smaller in size and easier to download and upload. They are ideal for sharing on social media but do not print well due to their small file size.
High-resolution images are sized at 3600px on the long edge and can typically be used to print photos up to 11x14 inches. By choosing the high resolution download size, you’ll be able to obtain high quality images while still enjoying a much faster download experience and easier file storage.
ORIGINAL (FULL RESOLUTION)
As the name suggests, these files maintain their original upload size without any compression or resizing. These files take up much more storage space and will take longer to download. Full resolution images can be printed up to poster size.
DOWNLOADING YOUR IMAGES
If you bought a session that includes your full gallery, you can click on the download icon at the top right of your gallery to download the entire gallery.
For single photo download, simply click the download icon on the photo you wish to download.
You will be taken to this screen to complete your download.
Once you enter your email and PIN, you can choose the download size.
You will receive the Full Gallery Download in a .ZIP file format, which you can unzip/extract to get the .jpg image files inside. Single Photo Download will save the .jpg file directly to your computer or mobile device.
PURCHASING YOUR HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES
If you would like to purchase individual images or your entire high resolution gallery, click the shopping cart icon on the photo of your choice then choose the DIGITAL category. You can then choose to add the single image to your cart or purchase the entire high resolution gallery.
Once you place your order, you will receive an order confirmation email. Shortly after that, Pixieset will send you another email that contains your download link. The link will expire in 7 days.
I hope this helps! If you have any questions at all about digital image, please don’t hesitate to ask me :)
