    Quick question.
    I have a picture I'd like to print as an 8x10.
    It's 2065x1383 (or 28x19 inches according to photoshop).
    It's 72 pixels/inch.

    The over all size seems ok, almost big. But will the 72 p/i hold up?
    I assume it will at only an 8x10 but just making sure.
    If not it will have to be rescanned.

    Thanx guys.

    use the crop tool in ps, put your 10 x 8 settings into the boxes at top of the screen and change the resolution in the next box to 300, select your area to crop to size, crop it, then save as a new file/jpeg/tiff or whatever, remember to resave or you'll lose the original, then you'll have to sort out the printer settings.

    2065 at 10" is 206.5ppi. If everything is alright edit wise (the crop is in a 10:8) then all you need to do is set your ppi to 206 or so and set the width to 10" and no real resizing will take place.

    I agree with this method. 300 dpi should always be your minimum printing resolution.
