Printing high resolution photos

A client came to me recently asking me to stitch some photos together. The photos ended up as two different files. One was a panoramic view of a city skyline at 28538×2039 pixels. The other was a view of some mountains at 5436×2410 pixels. I burned them to CD for her.
The next day, she came back asking me to compress them or reduce their dimensions. I asked her why.
“No one I took them to could print them.”
“Who did you take them to?”
“Walmart. Costco. …”
“That’s because they aren’t printers. Try a printer. Any printer worth their weight can print these photos.”

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
