Problems with image size and pricing profiles

    If you want to sell images as prints or downloads, you should upload them at the maximum resolution possible. A 1000px version will be generated from the larger file by PhotoShelter for display in your portfolio (or 1440px if you have that option set) but 1000px is not nearly large enough for good quality prints more than 3 inches wide.

    Thanks Nick.
    If I try to buy an image as personal use (downloads) there aren't any problem because I only can see the sizes that are identical or smaller that the uploaded image.
    It would be nice to implement the same in the case of copies, it would be a great improvement. Because, what happens if I upload a 5400 pixels image and someone wants to buy a 40"x60" print? The uploaded image is too small.
    I have checked "Allow me to confirm orders and/or replace images before they go to the print lab" to avoid any problem, but I think it's a temporary solution. Another workaround will be to create different pricing profiles for different maximum sizes. I would be nice if the buyer could only see the options that are really possible, that is, only the copies that can be printed with the uploaded image.
    Is there any official reply from Photoshelter?
    Any other idea or experience about it?

    If you want an official reply from PhotoShelter you should contact them on support@photoshelter.com - they don't monitor these boards. But in answer to your question, when you set a price against a print size, it will be available on all photographs, so I'd recommend uploading all images at maximum resolution and only offering print sized you'd be comfortable with your images being printed at.
