  • Between rock and hard place...

    I'm new to DSLR. Have for years owned Canon (A-1, AE-1). I'm in the graphics business, and use Photoshop on a daily basis, so retouching is second nature to me. The pixel issue should not be a problem for what I do (D40–6.0, or D60-10.0). It seems, from sample pixs I've seen, blowing up in P-shop, getting in tight on subjects for detailed touching up should be okay. What's your opinion? I'm on a limited budget at the moment (aren't we all), and need to get a DSLR which will stay with me for the long haul. Had to borrow a friend's Panasonic Luminex; I was in a bind; had to use it. Lousy results. Too low res for retouching. If there are any graphics people or pro photographers out there, who use either a D 40 or D60, your suggestions would be more than welcome. Which camera should I get? I've kind of had it with Canon. Thanks

  • I'm new to the nikon D60 and I have to take a photo of my dad so

    I'm new to the nikon D60 and I have to take a photo of my dad so his picture can be in a magazine. They said the photo must be in 300dpi. Can I take a photo in 300dpi, in other words- how do I go about changing the dpi in my camera? Or is it easier to just edit it on irfanview?

    Answered by wydown 2009-09-01:

    Well, this might help you. If you have Photoshop, or know someone who does, then it's a simple process of opening the photo in that program and saving it as 300 dpi. It would be a good idea to check with the publication as to their specs, and ask how they prefer the image saved. If you do it in Photoshop, then you have the opportunity of retouching to your satisfaction. Some pubs will take a JPG, or PDF. At 300 dpi, uploading the image could be time-consuming depending on the image's overall dimensions (inches, etc.). I'm assuming you'd be sending a color photo, so you might need to save it as a CMYK, and not RGB. So call or check with the pub first for ALL their
