As I expect the DV-2019 to (hopefully) be announced soon I decided to take a photo for the coming application. So far I've always went to a local photo studio to do so, but as I can read on forums that a lot of people take photo with their phones I decided to take one with my phone as well. The thing that bothers me is that photo specs say that if new digital image is taken it must be: *jpg *max 240 kb in size *min 600x600 pixels *24 bits per pixel *(it doesn't say anything about dpi here) But then it says if photographic print is scanned it must be: *scanned at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) *everything else is same as above My photo (taken with my phone) came out very nice. But when I right click and check photo details it says that: *horizontal resolution is 72dpi and *vertical resolution is 72dpi Is that valid? Since my photo is not scanned but newly taken digital image? If they are using a software to check if the submitted photos are meeting their requirements how can a software know if photo is a new digital image or a scanned image? And if the photo details say that a photo is 72dpi then there might be a possibility for disqualification, right? Well, just for the case I will go again to a photo studio to take proper photo just to be 100% sure that everything is ok. But if someone was selected and has a very same photo taken with a phone that was used at the application it would be good to know what those photo details say about dpi's. Thanks.
