Re: Resolution of graphics for printed docs
From: "Chris Christner" <cchris -at- toptechwriter -dot- us>
I stand by what I've written and recommend that you check out the links I
posted if you have any doubts. The suggested methods for increasing image
resolution without increasing file size by making the image smaller,
whether or not you're using resampling, give equally good results. I won't
argue this because I've compared printed example images and they're
identical. The distortion Bill mentions does occurs if you use resampling
to enlarge an image, but that's not what we're doing.
Once again, there's no image distortion if you use any of the methods I
recommend, and the resulting images are good for print and online use,
which was the original poster's request. So I guess we'll disagree on this
one Bill, although I'll be willing to change my mind if you can give me
specific examples I can test out that show why these tips are wrong.
