Avoid distortion of your printed images

Although the images may look great on the computer screen, they may appear distorted when printed out. For example, the image may look broader than normal, or narrower than normal. The picture may also turn out to be too pixilated which does not seem good looking. There is no connection between the size of the image on the computer monitor and the size of the image you print. When looking at the computer monitor, the image size will depend on the program you use to view the image, and the size of the monitor itself. Any digital image consists of pixel which cannot be enlarged to show more detail. In case you enlarge a pixel, you get an enlarged square of a single color. When you print the image, each pixel is printed. If the image is made up of lots of pixels, they become too small to be distinguished individually. If there are just a few pixels, there appear large blocks, each of a single color, and the image looks as if it were made up of squares. Normally, when preparing your images for print, there are two operations offered by ImageConverter Plus. One of them is proper resize, and another is dpi change. When resizing images, choose between “fill in size” and “fit in size” options. By default, ImageConverter Plus will keep the proportions of your image. Your image will change its size, but not shape. If you choose the “fit in” option, the image occupies the defined space leaving some areas blank depending on the resize preference you have chosen. Choose “fill in” option so that the image occupies the whole space without any blank areas left. This option is useful when the dimensions you specify for image resize do not coincide with the shape of an image. Talking about dpi, your image needs to be made up of 200 or more pixels. This means that if you want to make a print that is 6 inches by 4 inches, you will need at least 200 pixels for each inch, so your image will need to be at least 1200 pixels by 800 pixels.
