    Question How does persnicketyprints works ???

    So I wanted to try persnicketyprints services for and hybride project I saw at thehybridchick ... I registered and started the upload process ... They have this scale on each pics that show-up letting us know the "quality" and the size that this pic can be printed at for best results ... I'm chocked to see that my last LO (done one PSE8 600x600pi, 12x12inch, 300pi/in) shows 3 "red squares" meaning not good to print bigger than 4x6 !!!???

    What's going on ???
    What should I do ???

    Thank you for your answers

    Thats odd - I've never seen that...I guess double check that you didnt accidently save over your original when you saved one for the web? IDK - GOOD LUCK!

    Yeah that's odd. I have never had that problem at PP. Check the file that you are trying to upload for size...how many KB's or MB's is it? If it's KB's...it's really small.

    If it is 12x12 inches and 300 dpi, it should be 3600 x 3600 pixels. 600x600 pixels is thumbnail size. There is something weird w/ these proportions. This may be your problem. I'd take a look at that.

    I'm thrilled that they "warn" you, LOL. I've accidentally uploaded web sizes before and would have been UNhappy with the quality ;).

    Hope that helps.

    I bet you just got mixed up with saving it as 600x600 for uploading to a gallery
    Whenever I save I do it in three steps:
    1. Save the PSD file.
    2. Click "save as" then select JPEG from the drop down file type and click save. That saves your FULL SIZE image for printing as a flattened file.
    3. Resize my image to 600x600 pixels at 72dpi, then click, "Save for Web" and make sure my file size is under 150kb. Then I make sure I add "web" to the end of my file name so I never overwrite my full res image.
    I hope that helps! I'm glad you still had your PSD!

    My process is similar to Char. Kicker is adding "web" to end of name so you don't overwrite the full size. Mine will be "LayoutName" for full size and "LayoutName_web" for gallery size. Glad you got it worked out! Hope that got things straightened out for you and you are off to print!
