Ok going through PS's help and support and reading about resolution, little confused about the 300 dpi and ppi part,

What i mean is, lets say you have requested an advert from a design agency and you give the designer the spec's, width, height etc, then you ask that the advert be supplied at 300 dpi (dots per inch) or 300 ppi (pixels per inch)???????

from what it looks like in photoshop its ppi not dpi, but iv always known it to be dpi??????

Which is it? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/eek5.gif) and could you explain a little better (IMG:style_emoticons/default/winking.gif)

as far as I know, the two things are the same. DPI is just the term that's used the most.

My covers may only be viewed on well calibrated screens and printed on well calibrated printers.

Thanks:



ppi refers to pixels per inch and is the term commnly used to describe monitor resolutions. Whilst dpi refers to dots per inch and is commonly used to describe printed resolution for halftone printers (those that use dots to create the image like inkjet, laser etc. The confusion comes from the misuse of use by differnt organsiations and manufacturers. And dont even get me started on lpi, bit depth, contone, continuous tone, screening technologies and interpolated resolutions - I used to teach this stuff to the graphic arts and printing industry for a living, it has to be one of the worst industries for non-standardisation of terminology on the planet.

Ok so the correct term to use would be (dpi) as the required material would be litho printed, and not viewed digitally.

Correct Skally

Web printing refers to a process of using paper fed from a roll, rether than cut sheet, and would usually be halftone printing (although Xeikon based engines are web feb and print contone) and straigh to plate no posies (nice way of putting it) I believe would refer to a CTP (computer to plate, where the CMYK and special colours are applied directly to plate rather than film first) system where you the "rosette" pattern comonly associated when viewing halfont litho work up close is avoided by applying a differnt screening technoilogy like stochastic.
