Taking pictures with a mobile phone. The camera technology on smartphones is more than adequate for taking photos and publishing them online. Depending on the camera quality and number of pixels, photos can be printed 8x10" and higher with excellent results. The significant difference today is that everyone with a smartphone has a camera handy.

The following table shows the minimum number of megapixels (MPs) required for quality printing. Megapixels are only a base requirement; however, the quality of the camera's optics and digital processing varies from model to model. See megapixel and digital camera.
