Hi guys,

Was just wondering, what are the usual settings and crop needed for a 4R print? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

for 4R i usually crop it to 1800x1200, which at 300dpi, works out to be 6"x4"

for ur reference:

12R - 12" x 18" or 3600x5400
S10R - 10" x 15" or 3000x4500
10R - 10" x 12" or 3000x3600
S8R - 8" x 12" or 2400x3600
8R - 8" x 10" or 2400x3000
6R - 6" x 8" or 1800x2400
5R - 5" x 7" or 1500x2100
4R - 6" x 4" or 1800x1200
3R - 5" x 3.5" or 1500x1050

all at 300dpi. technically under 300dpi also ok, magazines like herworld are printed from colour sap film at around 150line (which is around 150dpi)

Sorry for the ignorance, but when you say 1800X1200 for a 4R, what unit is it in ??.... you didn't mention it here.......thanks for the tip.
