    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    So I just recently did my first set of Press Photos for a DJ, and I'm new to all the technicalities, and did a search for what I need, but didn't really find anything relevant.

    My question: I use Adobe Lightroom 1.3 and Photoshop CS3, and I use Lightroom to view and optimize my RAW images, and Photoshop to make adjustments like airbrushing and stuff. When I go to export in Lightroom, (I also have Timothy Armes Lightroom Mogrify application on there.) the highest saving option for a TIFF is 16 bit/component. The client said that her label requested 32 bit/component, at least 600dpi, and TIFF. How can I get this?

    Thanks for all your constructive comments!

    What would they need a 32-bit image for at 600dpi?

    nonetheless, in photoshop, go up to image>mode>32-bit.

    for the dpi, go to image>image size>uncheck resample image, and for the dpi set it to 600.

    That's it!

    I mean, I know how to change the images quality, but I guess I should have mentioned that the maximum bit that it allows me to choose is 16bit/component. Is there an update available or something that will allow me to choose 32bit/component?
    600dpi is the minimum, and it seemed low to me too.
