High-quality images are essential in real estate photography to create a lasting impression on potential buyers and renters. Understanding the importance of image resolution and quality can help you produce stunning images that showcase your property effectively. In this article, we'll provide image resolution and quality guidelines when using our AI photo editing service.

  1. Understanding Image Resolution and Quality:

    Image resolution refers to the number of pixels that make up an image, while image quality relates to the overall visual appearance, sharpness, and clarity. High-resolution images contain more pixels, allowing for greater detail and higher image quality. However, larger files require more storage space and longer upload times, so balancing resolution with file size and compatibility requirements is essential.

  2. Recommended Image Resolution:

    When using our AI photo editing service, we recommend the following image resolutions for optimal results:

    • Web and Online Use: For images intended primarily for online use, such as property listings or social media, a resolution of 72 DPI (dots per inch) with a minimum width of 1,200 pixels is recommended. This resolution will ensure your images appear sharp and clear on most devices and screens.

    • Print Use: If you plan to use your images for print materials, such as brochures or posters, a higher resolution of 300 DPI is advised. This resolution will ensure that your images appear crisp and detailed in print. The minimum width for print images should be at least 3,000 pixels.

  3. Image Quality Tips:

    To achieve the best image quality when using our AI photo editing service, consider the following tips:

    • Use a high-quality camera to capture your images, ensuring they have sufficient resolution and detail.

    • Please ensure proper lighting and exposure to avoid dark or washed-out images, as these can be challenging to enhance effectiveness.

    • You can keep your camera steady and use a tripod to prevent blurry images.

    • As discussed in our "Supported Image Formats" article, choose the appropriate image format for your needs. Using a format that provides a balance between image quality and file size is crucial for efficient editing and sharing.

Following these image resolution and quality guidelines, you can create stunning real estate images that effectively showcase your property and leave a lasting impression on potential buyers and renters.
