High resolution pictures

Hi Guys

I usually design logos or business cards in Macromedia Fireworks, when i sent them out to be print usually people tell me that i have to save it in a higher resolution, that they are getting blury image, i usually use Fireworks for images in the web site and they look fine for me, but i got this comment all the time that i sent them other places to be printed out

what am i doing wrong?
I usually send 3 files .png / .jpg / .gif

what should be the specs to save a file in high resolution

please give me some tips and advices

best regards

For printing the resolution for pics needs to be 300 dpi

Fireworks is primarily for web graphic creation

ideally logos would be done in illustrator as a vector depending on the logo

for print the ideal software to use is Indesign or possibly photoshop

some logos are better at 600dpi

don't use gifs
jpg is fine or a pdf with the correct print output

I believe what they complained is the number of pixel. You can check that in most to picture viewer. For example, open your jpg in Windows Paint, Choose Image -> Attributes, select Pixels. The Width and Height values are what you want to see.

To solve it, every time you new a picture, find the option to set your pixel or ppi (pixel per inch) to a proper value. For example, the default ppi is normally 72, you can set it to 360.
