DJ72 Posted May 10, 2017 Share Posted May 10, 2017 Hello All. When exporting images in Lightroom, what is the optimal Resolution setting? Lightroom opens with 72 pixels per inch. Is that ok? I am reading this article and it states: If the pixels of an image do not change, then it has the same digital resolution no matter what number is parked in the DPI/PPI setting of the photo. One factor in the quality of printing to paper is many pixels per inch are delivered to the printer, a number between 200 and 300 is generally accepted to represent "photographic quality" at an arm's length viewing distance. But that quality, the PPI, is determined by how many pixels the image has - not the number parked in the DPI/PPI setting section I have also seen comments that say web images should be 72, and print images 300 (ppi) Any thoughts on what the best setting would be (for Alamy)? And what would be the best setting if I just wanted to print my images to an on line album? 300 ppi? So, is the bottom line - when printing to paper (as for an album I am creating via Printer Pix for example) it should be 300ppi, and when to the web set it to 72 ppi? I am using LR 5.7.1 Thank you,DJ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
