As a graphic designer, I've encountered numerous instances where clients have presented me with web-sourced images. Unfortunately, these images often lack the necessary resolution for high-quality print production. If a printing press had eyes, this is how it would see web-sourced images: "What's this? Can't print that!"
For optimal print results, printing presses require images with a minimum resolution of 300 dots per inch (DPI). These dots represent the physical components of the image, and the fewer dots present, the grainier and more pixelated the image will appear. To assess your image's resolution, scrutinize its pixel dimensions.
Locate the image file in Finder, right-click it, and select "Get Info." The dimensions will be displayed in the "More Info" section.
Right-click the image file, choose "Properties," and then select the "Summary" tab.
