I have a 256x256 PNG file with 96 PPI. My document has raster effects set to 72 PPI.
When I place the file on the document, the linked file selection shows dimensions of 192x192 (which is 256 * 72 / 96).
Will I get scaling artifacts if I resize the linked file to 256x256, or should I first convert the image file to 72PPI outside of Illustrator?
Or, is there a way to define the PPI of a placed file?
I intend to make a color-accurate mosaic from the pixels, so I'd like to preserve the image's 256x256 pixels, one-for-one.
