I've received a request from a publisher for one of my photos.

The format specified is:

"JPG, compressed HIGH resolution 300 DPI RGB size 8" X 11""

Can someone please explain what this means?

Thanks,

Tom

JPG is a compression type. DPI is dots per inch. Your computer only needs as high as 72 DPi to be viewed on a computer. 300 DPI is considered photo quality. Not an expert in this area but if you shoot your photos in the highest resolution JPG you should be ok.

OK. But how do I email an 8x11?

Sorry for the dumb questions...

You would actually be mailing a 2400 X 3300 image. The PPI and document size are just tags in the JPG file. Those tags can be modified any way the user of the file wants. They are probably just requesting the 2400 X 3300 file in a way someone not that familiar with graphics can follow.

What program are you using to generate the image for them?

Thanks, guys.

It's a lot clearer now. I've re-sized the photo and will send it off.

I see no difference in the re-sized shot on my monitor and assume it's because the monitor is not a high enough resolution to show any difference.

Appreciate the help.

Tom
