Tips on photo quality.
For an 8x10 print, the image resolution should be at least 1536x1024, or about 1.5 megapixel.
An iPhone 6, for example, has an 8-megapixel front camera, plenty for a quality print.
Prints use about 4 times more detail than a screen, so blurriness will occur when the resolution is low despite looking good on a phone, tablet, or computer screen.
This is why you should avoid using a Facebook or Twitter-downloaded image, because those online services often reduce uploaded image quality to about 0.7 megapixel to save space, good for on-screen display but blurry when printed.
Edges, shadows, and colors will pop, so use a photo editor to increase the contrast and/or vibrance, depending on the look you're going for.
