For the first time, I am planning to print some of my photos in 8R size (i.e. 8 inches X 10 inches). I need some help in getting some questions clarified.
I have my photos at 72 pixels/inch resolution. Based on this, the maximum size of paper on which I can print the photos is 48.667 inches X 32.444 inches.
I had read that in order to get good quality prints, the resolution should be around 212 pixels/inch. As per the photoshop guru - Scott Kelby - if I want to preserve the print quality, when changing the resolution from 72 pixels/inch to 212 pixels/inch, I shouldn't Resample the Image.
If I do that, my Image Size changes to 16.528 inches by 11.019 inches. This I suppose is good enough to print on 8R size, isn't it ?
My next question is - should I resize my image to 212 pixels per inch first and then do whatever corrections I want to make to the image ?
Should I make the corrections first and then resize the image to 212 pixels per inch ?
Thanks for your replies.
