I am trying to get a high resolution shot of a building that can be used for a print ad. When I go int o photoshop the resoultion of the image says 150 at nearly all settings... The ad requires 300 resolution.. How can I get this when my resoltion is set to the highest on my G2.. Yes, I am confused.. Can I just change the resolution to 300 in photoshop???



Thanks for any help

There is a difference between image size and resolution! You can only set the image size on your G2. Image size means the total number of pixels, e. g. 1600 x 1200. Using Photoshop you can set the resolution of the picture to 300 dpi without changing the total number of pixels.

In the upper menu bar go to Image > Image Size, then make sure that "recalculation" is deactivated and set the resolution to 300 dpi! That's it! The size in cm or inches will be changed, but the total number of pixels remains the same. On the screen you wont see any differences!

Please excuse me - I am using the German version of Photoshop. I hope you will succeed...
