All About Product Photography

High quality and well-executed product photography is important for label design. Like high quality flexographic or digital printing, photography impacts the look of the final product. Before we dive in, remember, and make a note, that 300dpi (or dots per inch) is standard. Great Lakes Label will need images that have 300dpi no matter what.

While smartphone cameras have improved, investing in professional equipment is important. With smartphones, low light situations, as well as many other factors, impact the quality of the image. With a DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera, the photographer has more control over settings. This assists with taking high-quality photos in any environment.

This, at 300dpi?


Or this image at 72dpi?



Now let’s look at how to get high-quality images.
