    Reply to The Grand Old Question: What DPI to use?
    B
    My anal retentiveness is showing, but as already mentioned what you're referring to IS NOT dpi. The proper term for what you're describing is pixels per inch (PPI), not dots per inch (DPI). They're very...

  • good design books for less than $10?

    I have approximately $7 left on my Barnes & Noble gift card. Any good design books available for less than $10?

    www.half.com probably has a plethora of them, as well as your local used bookstore. Old graphic design textbooks are easy to find cheap, etc...

    But, as for a new book at B&N, wouldn't it be cooler to get $7 off a $50 book? The only thing that comes to mind (other than an issue of Print, CMYK, HOW, Layers, etc...) is Strunk & White's "The Elements of Style" because knowing how to write will take you further than you think in this ADHD age of non-communication and substituting "why" with "y" because typing 3 letters is just too darned hard.

          no, but doesn't B&N have a Starbuck's onsite? I'm not into supporting major conglomerates, but I can't seem to unhook my Caramel Machiato intervenus-drip. And you can almost buy 2 for $7... it means you could take a friend!
