a 600ppi file will not produce a better print than a 300ppi file if the output is 240dpi? No. It wont At 240 dpi you could use a file at 100ppi and you would see no diference. Agree with DA01, the 600 ppi on a photo has no sense. Let me explain a bit some of thoose numbers: Offset Print Print for offset printing - 300ppi This is relative. It ...

There are no specific standards, just general rules of thumb, and they will vary wildly based on specifics. I'd say all of the ones you list are pretty much in the ballpark. The only one I think that is off is the first one...600ppi seems overkill for even the best photo printers.

Well, with the info we have here we can only give you some general guidelines. For the dimensions part, depends on the size of the poster, do you want it A3, that is 297mm by 420mm, resolution is safe to have it at 300 pixel/inch. This will give you a document of exactly 3508 x 4961 pixels. Anything other than that, is just as you called it, a guessing ...

Resolution or dimensions? For "resolution" ask what machine they are working with and google the specs. In real life print an image, either you like it or you do not. For sizes, again, go to your local store or call them and ask. The "guessing games" is probably your game. You need to ble clear on what information you need to know. One thing is a color ...

Based on what you posted, your printer is saying they want full-scale artwork (meaning the exact dimensions as printed - that's what "1:1" means) at 100 DPI. But at 12 m in width, most graphic programs don't support such large sizes. You will likely need to break your artwork into sections that you connect back together when wrapping the bus. Talk with your ...

I'm not that good with printed matter myself, but if i would need to guess then 100? i know that i personally use usually 300 DPI for printed matter, (72 DPI for everything that's on a monitor of any kind, 150 DPI for newspapers). The printed matter on the buses are not in a good resolution, they just seem ok since we see them either fast or from afar, and ...

The value of “72 pixels per inch” does not actually refer to a display with 72 pixels per inch. It means “1:1 pixel ratio” or “show each pixel of this image on one pixel of the display.” It is essentially a zero point on the resolution ruler. So when you don’t care to specify a pixel per inch setting, you use 72 pixels per inch.

As you said, the ppi is irrelevant, because you're not actually printing anything. For your purposes, ppi is just a meta-tag that won't change anything. (See https://bjango.com/articles/ppiisatag/) I would just leave it at the default of 72.

Best photoshop settings... Do not make in Photoshop. :o) Unless of course it it your only resource, or you are manipulating the images in specific ways. Normally for adding texts and doing simple collages of photos try to use a vector based program and insert there your photos, so you have a resolution independent project. This way you have sharp texts all ...

You are really confusing units. 1) You are NOT generating images at 75 dpi. You are generating them at 75 ppi. That is a diferent unit. 2) If you lower the resolution on your printer you only make things worse. Here is a simulation on having a print on one resolution (left) and at half that resolution (right) If you lower the resolution you will only ...
