Photoshop DPI Settings
 
Hello All,

I am just wondering what DPI settings I should be using when editing my photos for web use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark J. Beltrano

For web use DPI does not matter, only pixels. Ignore DPI.

Sorry this should have read PPI. I am thinking of the Resolution when opening a file in Camera Raw and also the Resolution when re-sizing the image in Photoshop. I cannot really see any difference in 100% crops with the resolution settings at 72ppi and 350ppi. The only difference i notice is that the image document sizes are different when the image is set to 1024 pixels.

PPI? Is for the web DPI is for printing a photo 300 DPI is what I fine print on an ink jet would be or screen if printing in a magazine. If you send them a 72 they wont take it to much loss if detail. Most want a full size TIFF with no Photo Shopping at all. A full page at 300 DPI is just Under 15 MP IIRC.
Pixels Inch is what you see in photoshop just set at 72 thats all the monitor can show you! Unless you go to 100% to see how good the photo is sharp wise.
