I'm producing an a5 magazine and I'm wondering what is the best resolution to produce the graphics in for import to MS Publisher.

I've heard the looking at the magazine pages in publisher at 200% will give a good indecation of the print quality.

My magazine looks fine at 100% but 200% some of the pages look a bit distorted.

My magazine full page dimensions are

560px
793px

Intend to produce the whole 560px by 793px  image as a tiff file and then import into publisher.

The industry standard for photographic quality bitmap images is 300 dpi.
Why in the world would you want to produce the image as a tiff file and import into publisher??? That makes no sense to me.

Well, maybe I am misunderstanding but here is what I recommend:
Any text (headlines, body copy, etc.) should be created in publisher. If you are creating a background image for that to run over top, by all means a tiff is fine, but I wouldn't create my text in the tiff file. Does that make sense?

Use 300dpi or 350dpi resolution for printing.

You can use PDF or TIF, as long as you don't compress it while saving the graphic file.
When you are saving the graphic file, normally you would have the options to choose it's resolution.
