This depends on the canvas size. Canvas even allows lower resolution images to look good because of its texture. If the resolution of your image is lower than Riot minimum print requirement for canvas (150 dpi, at actual size) a warning exclamation will appear. You can still choose to print – just be aware that a lower resolution image will result in a softer print. Here are some basic guidelines for canvas prints.
2 megapixel images can print up to 30x20cm canvas before they begin to appear soft.
5 megapixel images can print up to 40x30cm canvas before they begin to appear soft.
8 megapixel images can print up to 50x40cm canvas before they begin to appear soft.
12 megapixel images can print up to 50x70cm canvas before they begin to appear soft.
16 megapixel images can print up to 100x70cm canvas before they begin to appear soft.
At 24 megapixels and above, softness creeps in beyond prints of 1mx1m on canvas.
This happens when there is insufficient upload band width while uploading photos. Although you are connected to the internet the uploading speed varies dramatically (as opposed to a downloading speed, which is usually stable). The online software saves every 5 minutes to prevent complete loss. Use one of the steps below to continue with your project.
Please check if all the photos are uploaded before continuing.
Contact Riot Customer Service for further assistance if you need it.
Riot does not colour correct your projects. So make sure you have a calibrated monitor. There are several calibration devices available on the market for professionals. For those who do not have a calibration device we suggest doing the following:
Riot uses industrial photo print standards to calibrate and profile its print machines and these standards are used for all printing.
