Quite a while back I asked about who to get prints done with. I have decided to go with digital works as they seem to be very popular and recommened. Although haven't had time to actually print it yet, but now I really want to.
I need some help with the preperation of an image before it is sent to be printed. I was just about to send the order away after I uploaded my image to digital works although as my image is quite wide I was unsure about the formatting process.
My photograph has the following specs at the moment:
3402 x 1314 roughly 13mb
Taken with a 40D through a 17-8mm IS USM
I want the print to be quite large and the only dimesions that worked were around the 20x50 or 20x60 mark. Although the red lines don't perfectly line up on the digital works site. How am I sure that the whole image is printed? Surely I don't need a bleed area like when printing graphics.
Is there anything else I need to check on the photo such as DPI before sending it? After I print this successfully I'm looking to print some other shots in similar dimesions.
