Digital Images — A QUICK Resolution

Q. I have these great images and I want to use them in a brochure.

The printer says the files are low res­ol­u­tion but they look great on my com­puter screen.
Whats wrong. !!

A.
 You need a 300dpi [dpi = dots per inch] image to get good print quality.

These are known as HI RESOLUTION images.
Images used onscreen such as for web sites are 72 dpi .
The bene­fit of this is the speed with which such images load in browser win­dows.
Aware­ness of the dif­fer­ence can save you a degree of frustration.
