  • Getting Composites Printed

    To get the best image quality on a composite , how should I have it printed? What resolution? Any other suggestions? I had my first one done from the lab and it didn't look good.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Shannon

    I'm not sure what you are asking--a composite is a print like any other print and you need to output at the lab's recommended resolution.

    Set up your background at the final size of the print (say 16x20 at 250 dpi).

    Then bring in each part of the composite already sized at 250 dpi.

    What exactly was wrong with the composite you had made?

      I think I had my dpi set wrong

      I'm not sure, but I think I had sent over the wrong file to millers and it was set at 72dpi! When I got it back it was real pixelated!
      Everything else I've been getting back from my digital prints have been excellent.

      I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a step! I will send another one this week!

      Thanks for the reply!

        Sharron,

        Are you talking about manipulated images or comp cards, such as what models use.

          anything we send to the lab is a 250 - 300 dpi

          72 dpi is for web posting

          we always double check the size of an image file when it is saved
          before it is sent to the lab.

          we learned the hard way too !
