Is 200 dpi OK for printing?
200 dpi can sometimes be acceptable printing quality, but more than 300 dpi is not of much use to printers (for color photos). Many 1-hour photo lab digital machines are usually set to print at up to 250 pixels per inch, but it won’t hurt to always provide pixels to print 300 dpi.
What is a 200 dpi image?
For example, if your image is 1200 x 800px and you print a 4×6, then the image is 200 DPI — if you print a 2×3, it’s now 400 DPI. The calculation is as follows: Width in pixels of the long side of the image, divided by inches of the long side of the print.

Is 200 DPI good resolution?
At the lower end of the scale, prints made with resolutions between 180 and 200 dpi may contain some artefacts in detailed areas but they probably won’t be visible in large prints at normal viewing distances. Above 250 dpi, images will be good enough to withstand scrutiny at normal viewing distances.
Is 200 PPI good quality?

Is 200 ppi good quality?
Does higher DPI mean better print quality?
The higher the DPI, the sharper the image. A higher resolution image provides the printer and printing device more information. You can get more detail and greater resolution from an image with higher DPI. A lower DPI will produce an image with fewer dots in printing.
Is 200 or 300 DPI better?
Keep in mind though the 200 ppi = photo quality concept, a minimum of 200 dpi should be used in scanning. Best results for paper photos are generally achieved within a range of 300 dpi (sufficient for most photos) to 600 dpi (if you want to enlarge the image).
What resolution is best for print?
