I have been entering juried shows. My entry was almost disqualified because I didn't have the right pixels (ppi). I am lucky the show chairman emailed me to tell me. Here is what went wrong:
I am just learning Photoshop. I was changing the image size to meet their requirements of 900 pixels on the long side. I wasn't aware that this was automatically changing the Resolution (ppi) to 72 (they wanted 300).
So, I studied Photoshop more and figured it out. I will put the instructions down here for anyone who is interested:
The requirements for the entry were: "Resize the image to 900 pixels on the long side. Set the Resolution to 300 dpi."
Bring up the photo of your image in Photoshop Essentials. (I have #7 - so these instructions are from this version).
After you crop your photo, do this:
Image/ Resize/ Image Size:
My image contained this information in the dialog box:
Pixel Dimensions 19.1m
Width 2208 pixels
Height 3030 pixels
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
