    However, there are those who use low res photos as part of the poster along with "fine prints". The photos is extremely, badly pixelated... It may not be what people are looking at but can be quite distracting in my opinion.
    maybe they are too cheap, don't want to pay more to buy stock images with bigger file sizes, just use the web size file for all their usages.

    I saw most photo captured by Canon only 72dpi. Why? In this case, how good of the IQ after print?

    Anyone can share this?

    Quick answer: For web vs. for print.
