Photoshop Induction – 17th November

Resolution – Number of pixels in every inch (Measure of the quality of image)

An example – image on a computer screen is 72DPI

  • An appropriate resolution on a new page on photoshop would be 300DPI. If we choose a preset size of paper to work with, this is the resolution it would give us.
  • Always work at actual size on Photoshop – e.g creating an A3 image, set paper to A3 on photoshop

Scanning an image in –

  • Use epson scan if its an A4 – Change to professional mode and check resolution is 300DPI
  • Use image capture if its A3

Saving a photoshop file –

Photshop File – Save as this if the image is still a work in progress. Keeps the image quality.

JPEG – Compresses the size of the file. Easier to store or send but may result in loosing some of the quality.

TIFF – Finished in photoshop, keeps the quality but smaller file size than photoshop files.
