Good Evening Guys -
I'm not very technical with computers but i can work them ok - im wanting a little help regarding the following please...

I have bought a nice photo frame today from Ikea and it has a center place for where the photo goes - the photo size needed to fit into the frame is 40cm x 50cm (so its quite large).
I dont have a specific image in mind for the frame so i was hoping to get a nice one downloaded off the internet from google images.
Is it possible to type into google (for example if i typed " misty sea storm"), then download an image of choice, then save it to an sd card to then have the image printed at a photo shop like max spielmans ??

I was wondering because i thought it might go distorted when trying to have the image printed to a size of 40cm x 50cm?

Thank You

If you get a high resolution you will be fine, or if you are printing to canvas, you don't need to worry as much.

You may want to email the owner to check copyright though.

Depends on the image you have or download. Look for tiff images I think they are called.

For your size, you need 8-10 MP minimum.

In Google image search, click tools, size, larger than 8MP.

The results should then all be suitable.

Hi there -
i have downloaded this image of robin hoods bay.

http://www.countryfile.com/article/walk-robin-hoods-bay-north-yorkshire

The image was listed as over 8mp and shows a ratio of 3673 x 2200 ....... do you think it will be ok for my frame to fit 40cm x 50cm ???

You can copy your screen using the Prnt Sc key and then use paste into the 'mspaint' display.
And then print from 'mspaint' ref

Need to make sure the image you print is not a copyrighted one. As RossD89 pointed out pixabay is good and there is a few other places to get royalty free photos, but be careful as some sites that offer free images don't always check (or care) if they are copyrighted.
