Okay...so i made a logo using power point to put on my oot bags. I found a vendor that will put the logo on the bags, I just need to email them the logo which must be at least 200 dpi in resolution and in jpeg format.

i know how to save the the logo as a jpeg. but the resolution of it is 150dpi. how do i change this?? i don't have photoshop and have looked online on how to do this...any one know how??

 

thanks!

when you save from powerpoint, it comes out 150dpi. You can double to size of the image & then you have more than 200 dpi. Just make sure they know how large you want it printed.

 

If you save as a pdf instead of a jpg, you don't lose your resolution. but, they might not want a pdf file. Powerpoint wasn't designed for printing, so there isn't a simple way to export a high res image.

 

Another option is to download a free trial of photoshop from adobe's website. Open your jpg & the click image--> resize. Check the box next to "resample" & increase your dpi to 200.

 

What photoshop is doing, is taking a 150 dpi image & adding in pixels to make it 200 dpi.

it is free for 30 days. I recommend elements. It's more user friendly. CS4 can do more, but it's not an intuitive program. For just making a logo, you'd have a much easier time with elements.

I find drawing stuff to be easier in powerpoint. Before I was comfortable with photoshop, I'd make stuff in powerpoint & use the trick to resize it in photoshop.

In Design is probably the user friendly, graphics program. I've never tried it. Illustrator is another one you have to study first. It's complicated.
