This is probably a dumb question, but how do I figure out the DPI of my digital prints? Any information would be appreciated!

If you have photoshop you can just look in "Image Size" and it tells you. Otherwise you need to find resolution in pixels and divde by printed size in square inches.

i think want you want is the 'magic' formula to get the print size given the dpi resolution - is it? tongue.gif

let's do voodo laugh.gif suppose you have a image with 1600x1200 and the print you want to make has 300dpi - the print size (in inchs) of the image is:
1600/300x1200/300 = 5,33x4 inchs (or 13.55x10.16 cm)

hope it helps...
