Hi Andrew,

Can I ask you for a favor? Please do not open for each mail a new thread, you posting a lot and we definitely like your engagement but we have normally here not that much traffic and with an new thread for each post, its hard for some of us to keep up with the list ;)

just to save any confusion, the "dots per inch" resolution that you're working with while building and editing your image can be considered a little like the zoom level when you're working with RGB. More dots per inch is very much like more pixels per inch, it means you're more zoomed out and looking at a smaller sharper image.

This need not bear any relationship to the dpi setting when you screen your print ready files. Unless you're using default settings and letting the software figure it out itself.

It's not unreasonable to work with 600 dpi images for a sharper resolution across the page, then apply a 133 dpi screen when you're finished. It actually helps the quality if the dpi setting of your image is not a factor of the dpi setting for your screen. So if you work at 399 dpi then use a 133 dpi screen you may as well just use the default settings.

Going the other way can be a little tragic though.
