Can Internet (website) images be used ?
Author Message

Can Internet or website images be used?

Images from the Internet or any kind of web site are 72 dpi GIF, JPEG or PNG files, which are not often reproduced, in large format printing due to the small size and (optimized-reduced color numbers) low pixel quality.

Color and resolution are removed from these images to allow rapid transfer throughout the Internet. See our Photoshop articles about improving internet pictures and resampling, median filters and Photoshop tips and tricks we use to increase low quality scanned images to achieve better quality large printing.

I made my image 300 resolution but it still looks pixilated, why?

One possible answer is, manually changing the already set resolution to a higher resolution. For example, if the resolution was originally created at 72dpi, then entering a number of 300dpi will make it pixilated.

The original art needs to be created at a higher resolution for best print quality in large format printing. You can also see our other Ezine articles to learn how to increase low quality internet images, jpeg files or other formats used in printing pictures or photo graphics. Go to the Myhelp pages on the left orange menu.

Making Images Larger

Increasing small images to larger images can be more problematical. As explained above, when you increase the size (canvas size) of a pixel-based image--in whatever application you use--you also increase the pixels until you reach a point when the pixels themselves become visible to the naked eye.

Although making changes in your page layout or drawing application is less demanding on disk space and makes output faster, you may notice loss of output quality if you increase more than about 180%, although the degree of quality loss depends just as much on the halftone screen ruling you will use. To minimize loss of quality when increasing an image, you must "resample up".

We recommend that you read our articles on increasing your picture size inside the MyHelp Photoshop Full Article.
