My dad and I took pictures with his digital camera yesterday and today for a calendar contest. According to the contest rules, "The winning entrants must be able to submit the winning photo[s] for publication in high-resolution [3 megapixel/300dpi or higher] format. The photograph[s] must be 11" wide x 8.5" tall." Also, when I submit the photos, they must be "at a resolution of 72dpi."
My google skills are failing me, and the information I'm getting about dpi/megapixels is confusing to me, as I'm not very camera savvy. My dad sent me the pictures, and when I click on the properties it says that the width is 2816px, the height is 2112px, and the size of the file is 2412.05 KB (2469936 bytes). When I opened it in Paint and clicked on attributes, it says that it is 81 x 81 dots per inch.
Sooo... is it even possible for me to enter this contest? If so, what do I need to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
