Dear all

I am doing a cover for my magazine in PAINT.NET a free image editing program.

Having finished the cover, I saved into JPEG, Bitmap, and PNG. I then inserted the image into an MS Publisher 2003 document and converted it into PDF. The cover picture (which is now in PDF) has lost its resolution as I am viewing it in adobe reader!

I tried all the above mentioned picture formats :sigh:

Any idea?

Thank you:wave:

Re: Lost its resolution

No, that does not solve the problem as I found out. It has to do with the dpi as I was told by a professional publisher. The dpi should be set at 300 instead of 96.

I will be giving this a try... but I need a graphic editor that can do the job... I learned that photoshop can do it.

Cheers...:wave:

Re: Lost its resolution

Thank you.

Yes... I was right... it maintained its resolution when I selected 300 dpi I converted it into PDF right from photoshop... it came out beautiful

So... first I selected A4 size paper and set the dpi to 300. Having finished the cover, I converted it into PDF and that was it.
