Pixels Per Inchs Resolution
If I wanted to print out a photo that was created in PhotoShop and wanted to make it a good clear picture the size of say a movie poster, what would be the best resolution (pixels per inch)?
itīs depending on the size of your picture and the resolution your printer uses.
by increasing the ppi-resoultion, you decrease the size of your picture (without "interpolation" active)
i would try to increase the ppi-resolution while keeping an eye on the actual size.
iīd guess youīre sourece file isnīt big enough to reach a real good resolution.
from my pratice in a media agency i know, that we use 300ppi images @ DIN A4 format (210 x 297 mm) and print this at DIN A3 fromat (297 x 420 mm) for example.
with large formats, resolution gets less important... as far as you donīt look close
Cool, so I can still work with the standard 72 ppi and not have to really worry about it.
Thanks a ton Groby.
mh...when starting a new, blank image, itīs good to set it to 300ppi
when you wanna go big or print it professional.
if you have an image taken with a digital camera, watch the size of the image
while increasing the ppi-resolution...
