    What are you going to do with it?
    It's used a lot in the sign industry with in-house design for in-house printers,
    but has sort of fallen out of favor in (at least my end of) the print industry....

    A friend of mine asked me to try to find the font used in the picture for their clothing line. I'm wondering if any of you have suggestions on similar fonts that I can show them! Thanks for your help,...

    Is there a setting on digital cameras for the pixels per inch? I have several photos that I have to clean up for the catalog I am working on. Taken with a Sony CyberShot DSC-P93. The file I am looking at is 2592x1944 but they are only 72 pixels per inch. The printer, of course, wants 300dpi.

    What am I forgetting?

    You can only get the dimensions they will all be 72ppi you have to figure out what size you want the photos at 300dpi. Then you have to do a little math. To figure out what size you need to be at for 72ppi.
    Less be more.

        ok, according to my camera's reference manual, I can choose from the following:

        Small: 640 x 480 pixels - basically used for web use only
        Med: 1600 x 1200 pixels - print 6 x 4" postcard size prints
        Large: 2048 x 1536 pixels - print 8.5 x 11" prints
        XL: 2592 x 1944 pixels - prints larger than letter size prints.

          'Resolving Resolution Questions' -- the topic that never, ever, ever, ever, ever, dies.

          Make pixels, not love.




          [Okay, go ahead. Make love. Just be sure to post the pics.]

              Open the image in photoshop. Go to Image>Image Size. UNCHECK the resampling button, type in 300 in the resolution box. Your images will automatically resize to 8.64 inches by 6.48 inches. All pixel data retained. No mathematics involved on your part - photoshop will do it for you.
