Can anyone give me a bit of practical advice ?
I m trying to incorporate photoshop into my teaching and I want to do things where students work over photographs that they have taken using the various tools etc . I m fine with the creative bit but what s the best way to start - When you open the photograph its a really large file - how do you best set up the image so that it retains reasonable quality but doesn't use up so much memory being stored etc - I don't envisage printing any larger than A4
Any advice gratefully received,
If you're not printing out out larger than A4, then set the 'image size' to 21cms x 29.7cms or nearest measurement and set 'dpi' to 300, save as a tif before doing any layer work. Don't forget to 'flatten' image before print and 'save as' another file to preserve the layers, this takes some file management but if you don't, your output files will be massive.
Thanks for that Jules. Where is the 'dpi' setting btw ?
