Using menu command "File...Automate...Fit Image" is one option.

They don't in fact you'll be hard pressed to find a modern computer that does. Its a historical remnant. So today it just means screen resolution. (the value has to be something in many formats). So is it really useless to create an image larger than 72 ppi if the browser will only render it at 72 ppi? No the value never comes to play. Resolution can ...

PPI is pixels per inch. That is a measure of pixel density, at 72 pixels/inch. Resolution is total amount of pixels at width x height, or 1680x1050. Density = total pixels / total inches

If you want to cover your bases the only option would be to include it in a contract that the client is responsible for the content and all associated images that may prove an issue and is the one liable by waiving you of all legal issues. I want to provide this service to more people (putting image inside text) but should I just stick to my own ...

When I am not sure if somebody "owns" a photo I use Google image search on the photo. Usually I can find the photographer or original publisher that way or see that the photo is all over the internet. http://www.google.com/insidesearch/features/images/searchbyimage.html

I'm guessing you used the magic wand tool to select the white background with tolerance set at 32 and anti-aliasing on. If I do that, I get the same result. Instead, set the tolerance to 1 and turn off anti-alias: Here's a comparison of the difference: Zoomed in for better detail:

It's normal. When you make the background dark gray, you decrease the contrast of your image. Maybe you should INVERT it: Inverting it changes the colors. Playing with blending modes you can get this: It really depends on what effect you are looking for.

I think you were on the right track with your watermarking option, but you left too much of the original image in tact. Here are two images I tried that Google was unable to find: Checkerboard Reverse image search results Mosaic Reverse image search results Another example Reverse image search results The first image returns a lot of "checkered ...

Google may use a different system but a large number of such services (tineye included) use perceptual hashes where the overall hash is close enough to be a match, rather than exact. A whitepaper showed up a few years back which detailed the process. I haven't been able to find a link to it, but the basic system relies on a action chain to generate the ...

Try switching the file format you're saving in. Reverse image searches start by using some data that gets logged intrinsically into the image, which is probably why your obfuscation techniques haven't been working. JPEGs are particularly bad about this, PNGs not so much. With especially popular images, this might not work, however. Ideally, find a way to ...

You can do something like this: It is not 100% bulletproof, but it should throw off most image identification engines. What I did was add black and white noise to the image as well as some displacement. Messing with the colors eg. only displacing one or two color channels would be even more effective, but complex to implement.

Interesting question - but there's an important distinction that needs to be made. Once you trace and expand an image - as you describe - it's no longer an 'image' in the photographic/pixel-based sense. It has been converted to a vector-based representation. With that in mind, one solution to achieve this (without dividing the text into lots of pieces), ...

You can't actually increase the resolution of an image once you have it, unless the photographer has a higher quality file that you can go back to. I would suggest getting RAW files if you reshoot because they are lossless/ not compressed by the camera.

If there is a luxury of possibility to re-shoot, I would ask your photographer to re-shoot at the highest possible megapixel that your photographer's camera allow. In this case I would suggest min of 18megapixel setting. and printing your image at atleast 150dpi. This should look still good from close distance. Other option is to use 3rd party plugins for ...

Just put your large, edited image in PowerPoint, resize it there, and print. I just took one that was sized in CS6 as 38 inches wide and made a perfect 4x6 out of it with no lossy issues. As we used to say in the old days when we had to do our own programming, the best solution is the simplest one, or what we used to call an "elegant solution."

If you can get a screen shot larger than the frame then there is no problem :), if you are going to reduce an image size, to keep the same quality right click on the image in the layer panel and select: "Convert to smart object" then reduce the image (Ctrl+t/Cmd+t) But hold down the shift key whilst reducing to maintain the proportions. That should keep the ...

I ended up using Picasa. It was perfect for loading a folder of images, choosing timed transition and then adding a sound track.
