    hi all!

    i am a digital artist, ..... and i would like to post a pre-printing question

    i need to render a 480x60mm image (fractal design)
    in pixels this amounts to crazy 34000x4200 pixels !!!! (@180dpi)
    now, to what percentage do you think can i render the image smaller (to save time) and resize the output to the desired size???
    the image will be printed on glossy film and then be laminated behind 7mm acrylic. (backlit)
    the artwork will be displayed indoors and viewed at from about 60 centimeters down.

    thx

      480mm x 60mm?
      Are you really talking about a 19" x 2.3" image (approximately of course)?
      I'm not seeing where you are seeing all those pixels...

          It's gonna be a .psb file at that size.
          Make sure your printer's rip can handle those.
          You also can't place those into most layout programs either so it has to be printed direct from Photoshop.

          If you take it down to 150dpi it stays in a regular photoshop file format and can be saved as .psd, .tif, or .eps if needed for film output. If this is your red backlit thing from another thread, 150dpi will probably be alright. Get a full resolution strip section done as well as a reduced scale proof just to be sure.

            The second one allows the smiling face to be a little more obvious. There are some interesting things going with all the shapes that I think work nicely.

            What I like less is the orange background....

            @B: I kind of get that. I bought a pricey ASUS ultrabook instead of getting a cheaper, more powerful custom rig. Regarding building your own, I guess the difference is in whether or not you're interested....

            @PrintDriver: You may be right about Mac being more forgiving. I suppose it does try to protect people from the nitty-gritty. The world of Mac is alien to me. Even weird driver issues in Linux Mint are...

            Hello,

            from my point of view I think the second one is easier to read so if I had to chose I'd go with this one.

            I'm a bit concerned by the amount of details in your logo thought,...
