How to print/scan at same dpi ??
Posted on 2004-09-21
Hello everybody !!
I have worked quite a bit with images, but am new to photoshop. Here is my problem.....
I have an image of size
Width : 1800 pixels
Height : 800 pixels
When I try to print this image I get a message saying...Image is larger than printable area of paper (which is set to "letter").
Since when I scan a letter size document at 300 dpi ..I get an image file of size
11 inches * 300 = 3300 pixels
8.5 inches * 300 = 2550 (approx).
So I know for sure that the first image (1800 x 800) should easily fit in a letter size page if printed at 300 dpi.
What I want is that my scans and prints should have a 1:1 correspondance in their size.
How do I do this ? Do I change the Image Properties or the Printer Properties (Both ?? ).
