Print View

Hello, can you tell me if the printed picture/page is as it will apear in the book. I have several pictures on my pages with the triangle warning signs. But when I print the page I’m satisfied with the quality of the picture.

Hello rbelmonte;

The warning sign normally pops up when the print-resolution falls below 150dpi…

Industry standard optimum resolution (as recommended by Blurb) is 300dpi, but you can safely print at 250dpi for regular reading, and lower still if the distance from eye to book increases…

If you are hapy with what you see with the warning sign in place, then go ahead and print, but, I suspect that Blurb would not accept any complaint about poor image quality if you did so! (NOT to be confused with poor print quality…)

Ultimately, the warning sign is there because the interpretation is that the image is NOT good enough to fill the container size you’re using; but, of course, it’s your perogative to ignore it if you’re happy to do so…

Hope that helps;

Lee
