  • Resize for _Print

    I have an old photo which will now be published in a small local magazine. I don't have much experience with prints... I could use some help here:

    They asked me in the format:

    21.5 cm x 28 cm (something like 8.5 x 11 inches by approximation).

    I have the following now:

    Width: 15.85 cm
    Height: 23.78 cm
    Resolution: 600 pixels/inch

    I need to increase Width to reach a minimum of 21,5 cm.

    How can I achieve this without causing any damage to image quality?

    Thanks

    They wont print it at 600 dpi. Printready files are usually at 300 DPI. So just resize the image (change 600 -> 300) and the size should jump up. Hence you'll have enough size there.

    If not, you can kind of safely upsize images to about 140%, so even that way you're good.

    Good luck.
