HI Greg:

Perhaps you can shed some of your knowledge or do a video on it. On another site, someone was asking about why her image got rejected for a calendar. After reading, some of us agreed that it was to low of a DPI.

Another person, on that same thread came in and mentioned not to change the cameras dpi, but the change just the ppi if i read correctly and to not constrain proportions when cropping.

If you have time, this is the link:

Again, if you have time could you maybe do a video with your thoughts?

I've always set Adobe Camera Raw preferences to 300 so it opens in photoshop at 300 dpi.

The way you are describing the conversation they are both wrong. Dpi/ppi have nothing to do with the size of the image. What really matters is pixel dimensions.

I kinda understand it I guess, but how would I set up my Adobe Camera RAW preference. I mean in workflow options there is a box with "image sizing" settings. That first box has several choices. Should I set my resolution for 72 pixels/inch? Should I use Width & height.

I think I am getting dumber by trying to learn this. Would it be possible for you to do a more detailed video as far as defualt settings in camera RAW to setting up a photo as 8x10 or 5x7..etc in photoshop?

I set up RAW for 72 DPI, width & height 4000x5000 pixels, opened in photoshop and set a 7x5 crop and my dimensions show 504x360 and a resolution of 72.

Is 504x360 not enough pixels? Would love to see a more detailed video. Thanks

Thanks Greg, I never ever picked up on this for some reason and I don't know how or why I missed it, but Camera RAW is set to 300 pixels per inch, for some odd reason, I always looked at it as DPI, why, I have no clue...probably because I'm an idiot. So I guess my final question would be, should my default in camera raw be 240, I beleive thats what you said in this weeks video, thsnks.
