Just a quick question,
Michael and I took some pics of a guy and his dog that we met in the park the other day and offered to send him a couple, just wondering what would be best to send, full size or a sized 6x4 for example, I'm assuming jpeg would also be best.

What do ya reckon? :confused013

Personally, if it was just a friendly gesture and you weren't planning on selling or anything, I'd give him something like 1024x **** whatever is in proportion.

That's just me though.

Do you mean send by email or send by print?

Agree with Dbax if emailing, send them at AP size, he can still print them, but not to big. If you are going to print and send him a few prints, send some 6x4's but make up some stickers with your name, email, and maybe phone number, and stick to the back of them. You never know, he might call and ask about a bigger print! $$$

EDIT - just saw your reply Lani, Still do the sticker, if you are sending prints. You never know, he might show them to friends and you might get a job or two.

No, I'm just emailing them Rick.... I'm friendly but not friendly enough to do prints for nothing. :D Might be a bit far to travel for jobs, he lives on the West Coast.... although you never know.... I did give him one of my cards. ;)
Thanks for your thoughts.
