Thx

300 makes things easier for the end user, and client relations, but it doesn't affect anyone but the person who needs to print the final output.

There are few, if any, clients who would use an image at 240dpi. 300dpi is a standard resolution for print and, therefore, probably your best option.


As Kelvin said; there are complaints voiced in the forums (and to Client Relations) that "I've been sold the wrong resolution!" They've seen the resolution at 300dpi on the file's page - see File Size when set to Inches then Medium and above all show physical size at 300dpi - and when they download it's different.


Sticking at 300dpi saves such minor problems.

This is interesting to me as how would the cust know the resolution until he purchased the file? Could that be a possible answer to some file refunds. I've never heard this addressed before and it's a simple thing to change the file to 300, for them to do, or for me to do.


 


i never looked at the "inches" option on the file...it does show 300 dpi, thanks van!
