Question about resolution and image sizes
Posted on 2004-09-21
Can someone straighten me out on this? I scanned a photo at the highest my scanner would go, 2400dpi. I bring this image up in Photoshop and do an Image Size. This is what I don't get:
Resolution: 2400 dpi
Huh? How can 2400 dots per inch = 1.3"? I mean, I scanned this image to be massive for poster size print yet it only comes out 1.3" wide? If I try to change the Document Width it won't let me set it any higher than 12.5" Huh? 2400dpi and I can't print it any larger than 12.5" wide?
What am I missing here? :)
