    Photoshop Help with Size..


    I am going to make a flyer for a non profit organization and I had a question.

    The flyer needs to be 4.25 x 6.25 to be printed.

    When I imput that size in Photoshop, the window is really small. Is this normal?

    Did you change the measurement units to inchdes (assuming that's what you want) instead of pixels, cms, or whatever? And are you zoomed in 100%?

    Explain your problem instead of asking how to do what you decided was the solution.

    Yes I am I guess I just expected the flyer to be bigger in size, I think everything is fine. Thank you for the reply!

    endz - it doesn't matter how "big" in inches you make it if you are using a low DPI setting.

    I think Photoshop defaults to 72DPI - ideal for screen work but ****e for printing.

    Try setting it at 600 dpi and see how you get on

    you can either specify it when you create the doc. Or at the bttom of the image size dialog you have a printable size option which will only work in inches or cm and has the setting for DPI.

    Icy

    PS Apologies for the expletive in earlier post - I wasn't havin a good day.
