    Default Persnickety Prints

    What size do you safe your .jpg files for printing? I am wanting to order a photo book from Persnickety Prints and some how they are always small when I upload to the album. And if I manage to use the resize tool - say manage here since I am somehow not managing to get the whole program to work properly - it comes off small or then overly oversized.

    After I save my psd [created at 300 dpi], I then file >save as >jpg, and the quality is 12.
    Those are the ones I UL to print.
    When you do UL, look carefully at the box choices for speed of UL. Some are only for small photos. I choose the one that saves, slow or large...something like that.

    I save at:
    Jpeg 12
    Size: 12x12"
    300dpi.

    I print at 8x8, but I always save at 12x12 just in case another family member or friend wants a page at that size.
    I just got a few today from their 74 cent sale that ended Sunday. Can't beat the quality or the price there.

    I haven't tried to order a photobook specifically... So I'm not sure if you would need a different size for that.
