  • 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???

                      I knew when I saw her in Smith that I recognised her from somewhere. Cheers Rehab.

                        For me I do illustration. So my advice is to find your likes and dislikes and focus on that. The problem I find is that people want me to do things I have no experience or knowledge about. That is when...

                        There is absolutely nothing "compact" enough to do the work that is required. Unless you do not mind being restricted in print size and speed. When I get the funds I am going to do just that....

                        You've really gotten lots of good feedback here, which is actually good, I think.

                        Just an observation, in case it's seeming like everyone is piling on. I've noticed when things posted here...

                        But is that what they do for a living 24/7 draw and illustrate ?
