My Dad’s always sending us these incredibly grainy pictures that he shot with his 6 mg pixel camera.
I thought he was achieving this effect via Photoshop Elements, as he’s given to excessive pfutzing around.
He explained the other day, though, that the problem is with digital photography. Apparently all cameras shoot 42" pictures at 75 dpi (or something like that). So that when he crops them, he winds up with graininess.
I haven’t had this problem with my camera (which is 3 mgpixels, I think). But I always change mine to 300 dpi, and usually bring them down to 8" x 10" or so.
He tends to email really large pictures - like, they extend beyond the screen.
Any ideas as to what’s going on?
Any way I can break it to him gently?
