First time posting here. I’m not a professional graphic designer. I’m pretty much self taught. I have decent designs skills and pretty good command of InDesign and basic Illustrator. Haven’t used PhotoShop much. There’s one thing I can’t seem to understand. I apologize if this is a silly question to professional graphic artists, but it’s driving me crazy.
I am making thumbnail images for my news stories on my company’s web site. I created them in InDesign. My document is setup as 760 X 395 px. When I export at 300 DPI, the resulting JPG file is 3167 X 1656 px. Why is that? If I export at 72 DIP, the JPG is 760 X 395 px but the image is not as sharp.
Is it possible to export at 300 DPI but have the file remain at 760 X 395 px? What do you need to do to achieve this? Can’t all those pixels be crammed into that dimension? Do you need to do this in PhotoShop?
Thanks to anyone who has the answer for me!
