Our Designer will be out for the next couple days so I was given the task of getting her project started since I have the next most experience with this stuff. Unfortunately I can't contact our designer as she will be predisposed for a while.
The project I've been tasked to do is for a large poster. The specs I was given are:
- 10'5" x 22'8"
- Layout size: 1/2" = 1'
- Live Area: 5.25" H x 11.375" W
- Bleed: No Bleed Necessary
300 dpi minimum (600 dpi preferred) at 1/2" scale. Keep all critical elements 1/4" away from all sides.
I need to know if i set things up correctly in photoshop. The client wants the poster to be landscape, so I made the document 62.5 inches wide, 136 inches tall, Resolution 600 pixels/inch. Is this correct? It's awful large, and PS gave me a warning about certain versions not being able to support that large of a document. I clicked ok and I can still work on it so...the critical area stuff is melting my brain lol
