The client asked me to add headshots of their board of directors to their website.
Me: The headshots are poor quality. They are too low res to use on a professional site.
Client: Are you sure? They are from a high res photo.
Me: What do you mean they are from a high res photo? They are very small files and are very pixilated. Do you have the original high res photos?
The client sends over a high res photo featuring a group shot of the board of directors.
Client: We cropped the headshots from this high res photo we took at our last meeting. They are definitely high res.
Me: The original photo was high res, yes. But when you crop it down to a hundred pixels or so, it can hardly be considered “high res.”
Client: That doesn’t make any sense. They came from a high res photo.
