Which photos can I print?

With Print Studio you can print any photos you can access in your iPhone's photo library, including all Albums, Moments, iCloud, as well as your Instagram photos.

How big can I print an iPhone photo?

Photos taken on an iPhone 6 or earlier are 3264 x 2448 px and we can print these up to 20" x 30". Photos taken on a 6s or later are 3024 x 4032 px and we can print these up to 30" x 45" as our largest print: The Wall Filler.

The Team

Some sites and services recommend that you don't print iPhone larger than 16" x 24", but really this depends on viewing distance. If you print an iPhone photo at 100dpi (30x40 inches) and look at it from 3 feet, the resolution looks as good as a 16" x 24" print at close quarters.

How big can I print a selfie?

The front-facing "selfie" camera on an iPhone is a bit lower resolution than the back camera. The maximum size we can print a selfie taken on an iPhone 6s or later is 16" x 24". A selfie taken on an earlier iPhone can be printed at most 8" x 12". However with the new iPhone X you will be able to print selfies much larger. Full details to come...

What about Instagram photos?

Our app can access and print your Instagram photos. We have a variety of products design just for them, like our Square Prints, Photostrips, and Posters. Because Instagram compresses photos after you upload them, the maximum size we can print Instagram photos is 5" x 5".

Can I print live photos?

Yes! If you select a live photo to print, we will print the still you see before you force-touch to animate it.

Can I print panoramic photos?

Yes! We offer a 12" x 36" print size designed just for panoramic photos. We can print these on Paper, Metal, and Wood.
