    The gradient is already made! I did create gradients. I may not remember exactly how to do it but I'm not trying to create a gradient here. I have 2 images. Both of them have the 3-part object, each...

    your gray shadow on the dog is the exact same contrast as the green lettering. Where they overlap the letters are illegible.

    Then the grad program should be titled "Design Process Management." And the principles of good design aren't any more relevant to print than they are to electronic media.

  • photoshop files printing speed

    since I know a lot of you are smarter than me ;o)

    is there anything beyond file size that affects the time it takes from when i hit print on the computer to when the printer actually spits it out?

    i'm working on a Mac. OS 10.3.9 printing on an HP 4600 using Photoshp CS

    any hints beyond "making the file size smaller" would help.

    I've searched on google to no avail and photoshop help didn't really "help"
    ;o)
    You see, whenever I start feeling sick, I just stop being sick and be awesome instead. True story.

    Increase the memory in your printer, update your print driver, create a PDF of the document then print it... Some ideas, good luck!

        Make sure the image is flattened and depending on how big the file is, reduce the resolution/size.

        Im guessing your only printing it to check colours/etc? So full res may not be nescessary?

          Depending on your printers post-script capabilities, we print it to a post script file and reopen it and then print. It reduces the time by at least 75%.
