I'm looking to print out my own wallpapers into actual real pictures so i can frame them and hang them on my wall.. The desired size i want is 24x36 since that's what Costco offers in terms of their biggest sized photo.
How do i know what resolution the picture needs to be in order to fit the 24x36 pictures they print without having to crop any of the picture or stretching it out in order to fit? I was fooling around on the Costco site in the photo center and whenever i uploaded picture it warned me of it needing to be cropped cutting out part of the picture or that it warns me that the picture will be blurry in person because of the resolution being stretched or something like that.
Is there way of making a 4K resolution smaller into a 3k resolution but with the same amount of PPI (pixel per inch) so that the image quality stays clear?
Hopefully this makes sense, i'm pretty lost on how this works lol. Also if Costco prints crappy quality pictures then if you have any suggestions on where to print them that look nice and isn't all that bad on the wallet then i'm willing to listen!Cropping Warning: The cropping warning icon indicates that part of your photo will be cropped at the selected print size. Click the Crop Warning above the photo’s thumbnail to review and adjust the image crop.

Thanks for reading!
