Start building the logo in a vector application, and worry about artboard size and resolution later: with a vector format logo, your artwork will be scalable to ANY artboard size and ANY resolution. Don't know what a vector application is? Here's a list of the more popular ones: Alternative to Adobe Illustrator Is Photoshop a vector application? No.

PDF/X uses CMYK color, If your artwork is RGB, that's why there's a change. Distilling to PDF/X will auto-convert colors to CMYK in the PDF/X options.

It seems that you are using Nearest Neighbor interpolation, which is the right choice for this operation. What causes your troubles is probably that you have the Reference point location set to the middle: Your image is scaled down from 75x75 px to 60x60 px. Since you ask Photoshop to keep the same center, the image is reduced by 7.5 px on all four sides. ...

Everything is working as intended. Just not how you intended. The purpose of DPI is to convert between physical units and pixels values. Since illutrator uses physical units this preserves one centimeter as a centimeter and one inch as a inch. The problem is that A pixel can not really be a unit because it has no fixed meaning. But users like to play as it ...

Downsampling does not come without a cost. Badly and inappropriately done downsampling can ruin your print. To be successful there needs to be enough extra data to rebuild the signal in the new size without much problems. So if you have only a little more data like say 5-10% its like just applying a blur on your image. Even less data leads to unpredictable ...

Social media sites use their own rules how they mangle photos. They need to try to keep the storage costs low enough to maximize their profits. You must be somehow important to the media company (for. ex. the biggest owner) to force them behave as you want. Social media companies do not care of ordinary punters, they are only the food - the special one which ...

Apply in Photoshop Image > Image size > 150 PPI, NO resample. Then save as PNG. Be sure you have color mode = Bitmap. Here's my example in Photoshop. I started a new image 300 x 300 pixels, color mode = bitmap with bit depth=1. I decided with no reason except you have mentioned number 150 let it have 150PPI resolution i.e. the print size I selected was ...

Squish-squash (Scale) A raster image inside a vector-based program has a squishy-squashy size. The file will have the same 5300x3500px, but you can shrink it or enlarge it. It will retain the same 5300x3500 pixels regardless of this. The point that can determine the initial size is the declared resolution. If your image has a declared resolution of 300 PPI ...

In a non-photorealistic vector drawing a consistent style is essential. Inserting blurry pixel patterns to a sharp vector image isn't OK. Your stray hairs should be a sharp vector shape, too: This is a curved triangular shape. It's shown as straight and much widened below the image. ADD: These are not made with brushes. They are plain three node paths which ...

Your timeline resolution is most likely not set to full. This renders the video preview at less than 100% for performance purposes. If you set the timeline resolution to Full, scrubbing through the timeline may lag depending on your file and your computer hardware. You can read more about the resolutions options on Adobe's help page Auto: (available only ...

Krita is developed for painting. Many raster image editing tasks go well, too. You expect vector graphics. To draw it you must insert a vector layer. There you can draw and edit Bezier curves and preset shapes like circles which are freely scalable like in Inkscape or Illustrator. I guess you would like to see painting tools working as vectors. ...

In Illustrator set up the new document to the size you want. In your case, that will be 57.15mm x 88.9mm. You don't need to worry about the ppi at this point. Create your artwork, or import your artwork into that new document. Here are the settings I used for the example below. When you need to output your work as raster, proceed as follows: Do File > ...

I think the upshot here is that they are not willing to give you any guarantees about colour matching. The fact they can use either RGB or CMYK images suggests to me the print technology is probably fully digital, and the service is set up so that ordinary members of the public who lack technical knowledge and don't have access to professional design ...

They say: Send a PDF, we print it. We are not going to give to you any information of the printable color range and how exactly you'll get what you saw on your screen. It will be what it happens to be. They say "it's useless to have more than 800 dpi - we are not going to give any advantage to you if you happen to send say 1000 dpi. Do we even start ...

Maybe just avoid using Photoshop to design user interfaces/apps. With the best will in the world, Photoshop isn't designed for this. It's a photo editor. Adobe has XD (for Mac and Windows). It's vector based more like Illustrator in some ways. Try that instead (and believe it or not, it's actually free). There are also other similar applications out there ...

Photoshop is not so popular any more with app designers, because it basicly remains a photo editor with poor typography and alignment features, and not well optimized for an UI workflow. Use a more modern wireframing tool like Sketch, Figma, Invision or (Adobe's own) XD and these will come with built-in presets for devices and automation in downsampling the ...

As a professional I have access to Photoshop, so in this answer I use that, but you could use the same approach in a free alternative like GIMP. Here we have an image in 700 × 400 px: Then we first scale the image down to half size, 350 × 200 px using Automatic interpolation: With this result: And then we scale it up to the original size using Nearest ...

There are several things to note before you proceed. Illustrator has a default of 72ppi. This is Illustrator's way of essentially saying that the document has no resolution, because it's a vector file, and vectors have no real resolution as such. There is no way to change this. You are not actually opening the AI file, but rasterizing a PDF. Look at the ...
