I've saved a photo in Ps at 24x36 inches. When I try to bring it into Ai on a 24x36 artboard the picture is huge in comparison. Why is this?
Exporting an image for web (using the
Save for Web command or commands from
Export... submenu) will save a file in 72dpi: because for web dpi doesn't make any difference. To keep the dpi value simply save your file using the
Save As... command.
