For three days I have been trying to e-mail (via Mac Mail) a drawing at hi-res (300dpi) for printing. The drawing is in PSE9, and I have tried saving it as a jpeg, png, PDF, and TIFF, and- despite a notation in the corner that alleges it to be 1.7 mb - in every case it is down to 72 dpi when it reaches the recipient.
So I searched forums like this, and found what appeared to be the answer: send it from Organizer. So I clicked on send by email, and a dialog box appeared telling that it was downloading the Organizer...and kept on going for hours, without any result.
Is there a fairly straightforward way to extract an image from PSE and email it at high resolution?
Hi purbrookian, and welcome to Photoshop Elements and More!
You can check the image dimensions by clicking Image/Resize/Image Size... (at least that is how I do it in version 13; it may be a little different in v9). You can see both the size and resolution in ppi (pixels per inch).
Many images are 72 ppi, so perhaps there is a confusion between printer dpi and image ppi?
The suggestion made by MajorMajor is a good one, but if that doesn't work let us know what you learn and we can go from there.
