What factors should be considered when deciding when to increase or decrease the resolution in PhotoShop?


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

The main things to consider are image quality and file size. A higher resolution image will look better than that of a lower resolution one. So make sure that the resolution you choose is appropriate for how the image will be used. A higher resolution image will also have a bigger file-size than a lower resolution one.

This would depend on what the intention is for the graphic or photo. A decreased resolution will decrease the file size but may not be sufficient to print.

Images that are going to be displayed on a screen only need to have a resolution of 72 (that's the best the screen shows). Images that are printed should be 300 to be sharp. However, if your camera takes an image at 150, just making the resolution 300 doesn't actually improve the resolution.

Fist, is the image blurry to begin with? If so, you need to increase the resolution. If the image is clear, but over bright, decreasing resolution usually makes it perfect.

One should consider the size of the photo that you will have it printed. The higher the resolution, the more quality the printed picture will be.
