I don't use Photoshop very often for print output but I am trying to get a business card done but every time I email it to my printer he's telling me that the card has to be 300 DPI resolution, 3.75 x 2.25 size, a TIFF format in cmyk color. That's what I think I have but for some reason it's not right. Am I not saving it properly?
I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what it is....Do you?
I'm using Photoshop CS (8.0) on a brand new Intel Mac Pro.
[Ron Redstone]"The image size was 3.75 x 2.25, the resolution was 300 pixels per inch and the mode was cmyk/8bit.
But perhaps it was %? Because on the file name it said @66.7%
Perhaps I saved it wrong when I had to choose the image compression? Or the byte order?"
Your settings sound correct.
The % in the title bar of the document is the size you are currently viewing the document at, so that's not a problem.
It could be something you did during the save process but I doubt it. Compression shouldn't be a problem, nor should byte order... If you want to upload a sample image (it doesn't have to be the card you've created, just create something in exactly the same way) somewhere I'd be happy to take a look at the file.
