Hi guys,
Right now i have a passport size photo scanned into my computer.
about 400 by 514 pixels.
i was thinking of collating them and print it onto a 4R size photo ,
e.g. print in harvey norman / photo shops .

how do i do it?

whats the canvas size i sld make in photoshop, in order not to "squeeze" or alter the size of my "passport" size photo when its printed in 4R ?


Dont worry as these photo are not for making passports.
i just want to have it for school work(arg, irritating) , but it have to be ard passport size.
(so i can save bucks and add on to my budget for a better glass ;) )

Thanks a lot bros ! :D

Here is how I would do it:

1. Scan in the passport size photo using 300dpi or higher. This is to ensure the resolution is enough when printed.
2. In PS, create a 4" x 6" canvas (which correspond to 4R size) by clicking File->New. Ensure the resolution is 300 pixels/inch (or the resolution scanned in step 1).
3. Open the scan pic, copy, and start pasting.
4. Flatten & save.

That's it! Have fun. :)

when you create a new canvas on photoshop theres premade paper sizes and recomended DPI for each one.. choose 4'x6' which is 4r and paste away...

haha, not so bad lah.
wait till many many den go print all together .
Ohhh hooo..
its done . put ard 8 of them .
wonder how it looks like.
thanks all for the information.

but,
instead of making 4"x6" canvas ,
i made 15cm by 10cm canvas.
i dunno why when i make 4"x6" canvas, and paste the 411x513 px photo,
it covers half of the 4"x6" =/

but if i use 15cmx10cm, no problem le.. :sweat:

That's usually due to a resolution mismatch. Just make sure that the scanned in resolution matches the resolution of the canvas.

Btw, if you have a color printer you can check it out by printing it before sending to the lab. I used to do the same, printing my own passport size photos for non critical use. ;)

Something to do with your resolution (DPI or PPI)
For example, 4" x 6" at 200 DPI is 800 x 1200, so your 411 x 513 photo would cover approximately half the height and half the width, making it 1/4 of the canvas.

If you set it to 100DPI, it's only 400 x 600 pixels.
