Tech Tip!

How much camera resolution is really necessary?

This is important only for prints & determining
the size of prints desired.

Below are examples of megapixels needed for various print sizes.

4 megapixel = 8 X 10

5 megapixel = 11 X 14

6 megapixel = 13 X 19

8 megapixel = 16 X 20

10 –12 megapixel = 24 X 36

36 megapixel = 30 X 40+

Thoughts!

It's not what you know, but what you use of what you know that counts

 

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" ... John Lennon

 

There is no such thing as "Snow Removal." You simply put it someplace else!

 

Sign observed in local coffee shop...
"I drink coffee for your protection!"

People may forget what you said, they may forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel!

 

We do not quit playing because we grow old We grow old because we quit playing!

A positive attitude may not solve your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

There are only 3 colors, 10 digits,

Truth can be harsh, but it can also be helpful!

 

Failure is the chance to do better next time!
