    Default sizing

    So, I made a holiday card in PS2 and I created it to be 4in X 6in. It looks great on my computer, but when I had them printed (4X6) they were all blurry. So, I decided to make it bigger in PS2 - but it gets all blurry when I try. Anyone have a way I can fix it without having to re-make the whole card???

    DH looked at it for me last night. He told me my dpi is really low. (I think it was like 72 or something). Anything I can do?

    The dpi needs to be at 300 for printing. 72 is for web so it will look good on your computer but not so good printed.

    yup What Jodi said. You'll want to set it to 300.

    Yikes! I wonder how that happened... all of the other things I've printed have been fine. Can I just adjust the dpi or do I have to start over? I am wondering how many of my pages I've done this to... haven't printed any in a while.

    Sadly, you should start over. Since it's already set to 72 dpi, if you change it to 300 dpi it will just stretch it and make it blurry like when it prints. That's basically all they are doing, stretching it from 72 dpi to 300 dpi when it prints and that's why it's blurry.
