SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT PRINTING When Working with Digital Files
- You can print at home using a large format, inkjet or laser printer. If you don’t have a large format printer, you can print smaller images. Or you can copy the files to a USB drive and take them to a print service such as KINKOS, Office Depot, OfficeMax, etc. and tell them what you need. (See below for making adjustments and resizing the paper pack or kit images.)
- Some of the paper pack images have been saved as larger 3600×3600 pixel images to maintain the highest possible resolution. You may have to resize the larger images to 864 x 864 pixels to fit on a 12×12 layout.
- When you are ready to print, you will need to configure your program’s settings and print dialog settings to ensure high resolution printing of the paper.
- Depending on the program you use, you can view document settings or page layout settings and check for high quality output with high resolution of 300-1200 DPI.
- In the PRINT DIALOG window, check for advanced settings and choose color management settings for RGB printing. Other advanced settings, if available, include high resolution settings, and print size.
- If you plan to print 12×12 inch prints, you will need to choose Borderless 12×12 prints.
RESIZING AND MAKING ADJUSTMENTS When Working with Digital Files
- All images in your downloaded files can be resized in any type of photo editing or design software programs.
- Some of the elements in our kits can be resized and others should not be resized if you want to maintain the best resolution. If you want larger images, you can experiment with resizing but The Jewels of Kingwood are not liable for distortions on any resized images.
- To proportionately resize an image, click on the image to select it. Locate the “bounding box” that surrounds the image and place your arrow cursor on any one of the corner boxes or “handles”; hold down the shift key and click and drag your cursor slowly towards either the center of the image to make it smaller OR outwards away from the center of the image to make the image larger.
- Holding the shift key down while dragging on a corner will maintain the correct proportion of an image that is being resized.
