What's the difference between the Free download and the Full Resolution download?

The Free download saves your image as a smaller file perfect for social media or very small prints such as wallets. You may access your free image download anywhere you see the download arrow. It will require your email address and the provided download PIN.
The Full Resolution download (a paid option) saves your image at its original file size making it best for prints larger than wallets and up to large format options like a wall poster. You may access the Full Resolution image download as a paid option in the gallery store.
