Question Need advice on the printing issue

I'd like to print a couple of photos that I just took with my digital camera.
To obtain their sharpness as I see on my computer, how should I set it up in photoshop to print ? Should I resize them to a certain size first before I send to the printer or should I just print them at these current sizes and scale them in the Print window of photoshop ?

Whichever way, what should be the settings ??

Please advice,
Thanks much.

Hi Kim,

The only thing you really have to check before sending to printer is the resolution, this ideally should be 300 pix/inch, though you can get away with settings as low as 200 pix/inch.

To see what size picture this will give you, set height and width to read in cm or inches (whichever you're most comfortable with).

eg if you've got a pic taken on a 3M camera, you'll usually get a picture of approx 2000x1500 pix in size. With a resolution of 300 pix/inch, this will give you a printed picture approx 6.7"x5". At 200 pix/inch, that would be 10"x7.5".

Hope this helps.
