03 Cropping can cause printing problems

Unless you've got a full-frame and/or high pixel-count camera, one of the other problems with cropping photos is that your cropped image might lack enough resolution for you to be able to print it at a big enough size.

Heavy cropping reduces the file-size dramatically, leaving the resulting image unsuitable for printing and enlargements. The effect of this may well be visible to a viewer in the form of softness, pixelation and lack of detail. Relying on cropping to make up for poor compositional technique is not advisable.
