Technical jargon can be confusing, so I put together this short post to explain the difference between Low and High-Resolution images.
First, take a look at the following images. Click each to see it in full size.
When we shoot, we always send you the High-Resolution versions of your shots so that you can use them wherever you need. They are very big - good enough for printing and use in any normal media.
But in order to make our website load faster, we only display Low-Res photos on it.
If we used high-res photos, the file sizes would be so large that you'd have to wait 5-10 seconds for each picture to load - and on a page with 20 images, that could take a while!
Hopefully this clears things up, but if you have further questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I'll respond within a few hours.
