delivering catalog images on white background-72dpi but what pixel x pixel?

i never shot table top products.

i spent the weekend helping a friend.

the friend put me in touch with his web person who runs the online store.

i asked for deliverable specs.

he said "the dimensions should be 2000x2000px, 72dpi."

is that right?

when i went to preview and was going to adjust the size, it seemed huge.

could 2000x2000px, 72dpi be correct?

(this is not my realm. i'm a motion guy trying to help out a friend!)

any and all info who be appreciated.

rob

That sounds like a reasonable size to me. The on-white product images we output are 2000-3000 pixels on the longest dimension. We output that because even if the initial view is smaller like 500 pixels, most e-commerce websites (Amazon, etc.) demand larger files so they can enable zooming in.

Example here, when you click on the images you get the giant zoomed in versions: [www.amazon.com]

The person putting the images online just wants something to work with, so that they can crop it or knock down the pixel size further without losing quality.

Weird that the ancient Macintosh "72dpi" display resolution standard still lives, tho.

Yeah, why bother with the 72dpi resolution. 2000x2000 pixels is 2000x2000 pixels at any dpi. smiling smiley

My guess the 72 dpi is declared so the guy can see it in a standard window. Not all programs will preview full size if the dpi changes between images.
