Image sizes

Sizes are given in mexapixels, the same measure used for the image sizes produced by digital cameras. Here’s some reference points for choosing the most appropriate size for your needs:

Size Application
0.75 megapixels Basic projector (1,024 x 768 pixels)
2.1 megapixels HDTV / High Definition TV (1,920 x 1,080 pixels)
8.3 megapixels 4K TV (3,840 x 2,160 pixels)
8.7 megapixels A4/Letter print @ 300 dpi

If you intend to crop the image, work out the approximate area scale factor from the crop to the full-size image, then multiply by the megapixel size you require. So if your crop is a quarter of the entire image and you want it at HDTV size, you will need to license a file that is at least 8 megapixels (HDTV @ 2.1 megapixels x 4).
