How to scale psd file to internal ruler tool measurement for printing.
Posted on 2014-01-22
I have a psd file with a large graphic. Inside of the graphic, there is a design element that I know is 2.5in. in size physically.
Using the ruler tool in PS, this 2.5in element is currently measuring at 3251px in size (a scale factor of 1300.4 per measurement log).
I want to scale the graphic down so this element is exactly 2.5in. in size for printing purposes (will be exporting to pdf for printing).
My question is how do I scale down the graphic, so this internal element is exactly 2.5 in?
I was thinking I could adjust the pixels/inch measurement in the "Image Size" tool, so that it is using (3251 / 2.5) = 1300.4. I'd also de-select "scale styles" and "resample image".
Does this make sense or is there a better way?
