Hi all...

Just a quick question, when I create an image from lightwave 2 use as an A4 image wot screen size should I use, I have opted 4 2560x1920 which is 640x480 @ 400%, is this going 2 b any good ???

Well it depends what it's for. If you want to print an image at 300 dpi an A4 document at that res would be 2480x3508.

@200 dpi 1654x2339

@72dpi 595x842

Does that make any sense or have I misunderstood your question?

Yeah that does answer my question, basically I have no print experience and I am doing the front cover for a tender so I guess I need to print at 300dpi... How do u come by the sizes u supplied ??? oh and thanx 4 that and I assume the size u gave is landscape, and portrait would b reversed ???

Hehe, the size I gave is portrait. Landscapeis the other way round.

Got my dimensions by entering parameters in the Photoshop 7 "new document" dialog. :)
