High Resolution Software For PrintingViews: 611

Lamar Morgan 954-603-7901

I just spoke with a newspaper regarding submitting an ad for publication. I was informed that you for the ad to look decent the resolution needed to be 300 DPI. Well, if you have a low resolution picture which is far from 300 DPI is there anything you can do via coding and software to make it become 300 DPI? Is that one of the things Photoshop does? Are there open source programs which will also do this sort of thing?

I was on the phone with someone earlier today and she told me she actually uses coding to change the DPI and that it is somewhat complicated. I should have asked her the name of the software she used, but got side-tracked.

Try searching "low res image to high res" then ask us.

There are a lot of free or open source image editing programs ... GIMP is a fairly feature-rich open source program, you might want to search for that and find the appropriate download for your system.

Remember, in print it's not just resolution (DPI) but size (number of dots) as well. If you have an image that is only 250 pixels wide and you want it to appear 2 inches wide at 300 DPI in a print ad, no matter how you manipulate the image it will look bad. You need an original that is large enough (in pixels) so that it doesn't need to be enlarged; the more you have to enlarge it, the more the image quality suffers.

Yes, I am alive. Hahaha! I missed all of you. After an eternity of absence, I'm saying hi. I know, I know. Very bad of me. Sigh.

Anyways.

Couldn't help but notice the number of threads Lamar has posted about high res images. Everyone is right - for printed material esp an ad, high res images (300dpi) is always required.

To save yourself from future anguish and hassles, I'd recommend you always shoot using high res. If you want to use the image for the web, just change the resolution to 72dpi on Photoshop. Life is easier that way.

If you use images found on the internet, best to choose the high res ones. And the easiest way to do this is to buy the image so you can choose the correct resolution. You may search for high res images but that's going to eat up on your time. Been there, done that, got a migraine for it. Patience is not always a virtue as I have discovered the hard way. LOL!

When you have a graphic artist who has to do the arduous task of fixing your images bec they are on low res, you run the risk of being charged more for computer time.

Hugs to everyone. Ahoy, Pirate!

Hey Sunny..
Glad to see you survived all the weather troubles.

It *is* important to shoot in higher resolutions especially if you plan to use your images on products or offer them for sale.

One of my clients is a wonderful photographer but she figured she would only need her images for the web and shot them all at 72 DPI.

Now she would like to sell her images as print on demand, fine art (imagekind.com) and to be used on tshirts and such (cafepress.com) and the resolutions are too low to suit.

Reg,

So, what did the photographer do to fix her DPI problem?
