Photo Preview DT Style!

posted on 4th of november, 2009


This is a fast tip...
If you want to see how your image looks when published on DT, do the following using Photoshop...

1- Open your photo (Illustration);
2- Change the resolution from 300DPI to 72DPI;
3- Resize your image to width 300 pixels for landscape images or the height to 350 pixels for portrait ones;
4- From the filter menu choose the sharpen -> sharpen;
5- From File menu go to Save for web, choose the jpg format with 85% quality.

That's it!

Now you will see the image the way it will show on DT if it was accepted and with out the watermark of course :)

Cheers ;)

Hi Joe, actually the submission is always 300dpi
The common web resolution is 72dpi... But thank you for paying my attention to this because I found photos previewed with 300dpi as well!

Thank you all... Leslie thank you twice :))

Cheers ;)
