This plug-in helps you calculate the print size of your photos at various resolutions and determine the optimal size of your prints.

  • How large can I print my photos?
  • How bad will my photos turn out if I print them at this size?
  • What is the best print size for my photos photos?
  • Which of my photos can I print at this size?
  • How well these photos match the print format I chose?
  • How large my photos need to be in order to print well at this size?

These are just few common problems the plugin can solve!

The original idea of this plugin was suggested my Mr. Thomas Kemnitz (www.thomaskemnitz.de) when he was looking for a tool to optimize the layouts for his photo books.
