  •  To prepare you images for printing: (12+ / 0-)

    If they are being printed on a 4-color offset press (magazine, booklet, brochure), then here are the things that must be done (presuming you have some version of Photoshop):
    1. Set "Image">"Mode" to CMYK
    2. Set "Image">"Image Size" to 300 "Pixels per Inch" being sure that the radio button for "Scale Styles" is unchecked, the button for "Constrain Proportions" IS checked and the button for "Resample Image" is unchecked.
    2. Finally, do a "Save As" and change the file name so you don't overwrite the original file, and save the image as a TIFF. When you do this, you will get a query box asking what, if any compression mode you'd like to use. Check "LZW". The image is now ready to print directly or be imported into a page layout program, such as InDesign. (Note that if the image is to be printed by itself - not through a page layout program - the image will print at the size {in inches} that was indicated when you changed it to 300 pixels per inch. If you want to resize it, go back to the "image size" box and check "Resample Image and enter the new size, noting that you can't make it bigger, only smaller.

    If you are having the image printed as a "Giclee" (high-end inkjet), follow the above instructions with the exception of the "CMYK" change, which is now optional, depending on which kind of inkjet printer is being used.

    Hope this helps.
