Thread: Cropping Resolution

  1. #1

    Default Cropping Resolution

    Hello all,

    If I intend to crop my shots in Photoshop for printing eg. 4x6 or 8x12, at what pixel resolution should I set it too eg. 300 dpi/inch and so on.

    Most of my prints will be at 4x6 with occassional 8x12.

    Thanks in advance.

    In PS -> Image -> image size.

    set the resulution to 300dpi.
    in the X and Y setting, choose inch
    then for the width, choose 6 and heigth choose 4 (or width 4 and heigth choose 6 for potrait)... the pixel will be automatically choosen for you.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the advices. Guess I did the right thing. I had been setting them at 300dpi but was not sure. Thanks a lot.

    How will it affect the final printing if you set to different dpi?

    AFAIK, 180 dpi still still fine thou.

    But I think FUJI FRONTIER provides best quality print at 300 dpi. anything beyond it will be ignore.

    So the best resolution for 4x6 print (4R) will be 1800 x 1200.

    72 px per inch is web resolution... too low.

    another way is to crop @ 4in by 6in @ 300dpi
