Typically images will be supplied as JPEGs, and an A4 (210mm x 297mm or 8¼” x 11¾”) image at 72 ppi will create a JPEG of approximately 500kb or half a megabyte. Remember though – to use that image in print we need the image to be 300 ppi, and at that resolution the JPEG will be around 3.5 Megabytes.High resolution files tend to be heavier in weight. If your file is less than 250kb, chances are that your image is only good to be shown on screen. 250kb – 500kb images, might be useable as very little thumbnails.
