    One thing I've wondered about Lumia 1020 pictures at full res is how big you could print them out with decent quality?

    I just looked up one in Paint on the pixels, and unless I'm mistaken the full res was 7712 x 4352px, which when translated to inches the former is 80 inches (!) and over 6 and a half foot?

    So does that mean the photos would be like 6 x 4 ft?

    I just wondered about doing the odd photo on a canvas and wondered what sizes you could maintain quality at etc. I had a look for other threads on this but couldn't see any...

    Any suggestions appreciated! Cheers!

    Whilst I couldn't give you an answer, it all depends on DPI (Pixel Density) of the printer being used. Sorry I can't elaborate any more, but I hope it helps.

    The other thing you'll want to consider is while there are a lot of pixels, they are tiny tiny pixels and the accuracy of each pixel at a fully zoomed in level won't look very good. You'll want print your picture as 5-8mp at most to get decent quality

    My neighbor had a bunch of iPhone 4S photos printed out onto canvas prints and were sized around 20 inches square. Now, I didn't examine them with a magnifying glass, but I thought they looked so good that I thought they were taken with a DSLR. So I think any 920 or higher phone will do just fine for this purpose, as long as you make sure you have decent amount of light. One last comment: I suspect that canvas prints will have a bit of a graininess to them, which may hide the photos lack of high quality or resolution.

    Thanks for the extra replies. Yeah I was wondering about the trade-off between quality and size basically ands what would be the maximum size of a decent quality and so on. Looking at that link someone posted above, if you went with 300 DPI you'd still get a decent size. I am intrigued to just go for it and get a huge 70 DPI print out like a huge poster and see how it looks. :)

    How much is it looking to cost you? Could be worth a punt!

    No idea but might be worth it for a laugh - I'd be surprised if printing out a poster was too much more than £20?
