Hi all.
I am new to digital photography and i am having a 2MP nikon coolpix 2500. Basically, I am taking pictures for my website and I wonder if a 2MP is gd enough or should i consider upgrading to a 3mp?The keyword is sufficient.does a higher pixel photo take up more space (Webspace cost $$)

Thanks!

2mp camera is definitely enough. Note also that pictures for the web need only be 72dpi. anythingmore is a waste of space (unless of course, you want your viewers to save and print these pictures)

What resolution do you want to use when displaying on the web?
Lets say its 1024 x 768 = 786,432 pixels, or 0.75MP.
or 800 x 600 = 480,000, or 0.45MP.

What a higher MP camera gives you is more options. ie. you can crop larger photos, allowing you to filter out parts of the image you don't want to display. If an image is slightly out of focus, by downsizing it, you will gain some sharpness that may allow you to salvage the image.
