Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/21/2014 -- Online printing expert 4OVER4.COM posted a new blog entry on the basic terms anyone should know when dealing with digital printing. It includes basic notions for beginners to understand the DPI requirements for print and web resolutions.
4OVER4.COM’s blog post gives simple definitions of DPI (Dots Per Inch) and Resolution to non designers or printers. The company goes over the optimization terms to help printing beginners avoid professional printing disappointment.
In terms of DPI values, the online printer explains how while 72dpi is a standard web value, an ideal image for printing should be around the 150dpi to 300dpi. The approximate resolution will depend on printing size and purpose.
The post on the basics of image resolution also explains the differences between JPEG, PNG and GIF as the most common file formats for image exchange. While they are all images, JPEG is more suitable for photography. PNG’s strength is transparency preservation and GIF supports animations.
There is also an explanation on how resizing an image does not necessarily involve lowering its quality. Making a file smaller is more practical in terms of sharing it through the web. It also features an example of image compression using an online file optimizer, showing how an file can be compressed to half its size without compromising image quality.
