    That will produce worse results. For example, if you specify the size in which the image displays as 200 x 200 pixels, but you upload a 300 x 300-pixel image, your browser will still need to display that...

    Sorry I'm not familiar with square space, so .svg might not be the answer. Is your MBP at retina model?

  • Image sizing HELP!

    Hi, Some advice please. If I place an image approx 30cm wide by 20cm High into a 7 x 3 banner created actual size using InDesign and the image is stretched within its picture box to approx 500%, and on screen (InDesign)
    i view the banner at 100% am I seeing a clear representation of how the image is going to print?

    The doctor says, 'It's old age.'
    The woman says, 'I want a second opinion.'
    The doctor says: 'Okay - you're ugly as well.'

      If your image started at 300 dpi you have to take into consideration that a 500% enlargement will drop that dpi down to 60(approx) have I got that right or is it less?

      You're screen resolution is 72dpi, as you're viewing the image at only a fraction under your monitors resolution it probably does look ok, when it goes to print it most likely will not be ok.

      Where's PD when you need him.

        ^^ Well, I dunno about PD, but you've got that exactly right - including the maths. Good work

          Sleeping.

          If you view at actual print size you will get somewhat of a representation of what it will look like. For large format, printing out a piece of the image at final size to an inkjet printer will give you a better idea.

            OH. MY. GOD.

            PD is totally like The Candyman - you say his name a few times and he magically appears!

            Now I totally have to run and hide, because I am *really* scared of bees!

                Yay, Gold Star for me.

                I never really understood the whole Candyman thing, till my friend made me watch it. I didn't see no Candy in that movie, not a single pancaking Mars Bar! I did not sleep well that night!

                    Yeah I think there's an answer in there - cheers boys! Lost me on the Candyman connection, but will take your word that it's scary. Wasn't Virginia Madsen in that???
