Photo Request: 8.5x11 @ 300 DPI

Wed Nov 07, 2007 7:10 pm

I just received an email requesting a photo with a "file size of 300 DPI at 8.5 x 11." I thought DPI was only for printing and not file sizes? I know I can resample the image to have 300 PPI at 8.5 x 11... is that the same thing?

Thanks, and sorry if this has been covered.. I did a quick search and didn't see anything. And time's kind of an issue. Thanks again!
Mike

The higher the dpi, the bigger the uncompressed file.

Resolution will usually affect print quality. But basically all they're saying here is they want a file that is 2550x3300 pixels.
