    Default I think I messed up my DPI

    When I first started with the digital, I think it defaulted to 96 pixels per inch. Now the scrapbookpictures.com site doesn't have it in red at 12x12 which I figured meant it should print fine, but do you think at 96 dpi it's going to be blurry or grainy? I did some for my mom at 300 dpi and she just got her order in the mail (I figured she could test run it for me since I don't have the cash right now). SHe said her quality was phenominal. So now I'm nervous and wondering if I should go back and re do all those layouts I did or can I just adjust the dpi in my program and have it resize appropriately w/o any problems?

    Depends on how they print them but I'm betting that they will be grainy. There is a vast difference between 96 and 300 dpi. Maybe print one layout and see. How much work is it to change them to 300 dpi?

    96 dpi is a lot different than 300 dpi.. eek! maybe if the picture doesn't have a lot of detail in it, it will come out okay?!

    Well that kind of stinks - I think that at 96dpi it will be a bit on the grainy side. I would definitely experiment with changing the dpi and see if it will resize stuff for you... just make sure to save a copy first! Otherwise I would probably just have a test one printed to see how it turns out.

    I can change the resolution in the program fairly easily but I'm wondering if that won't give optimal results. Should I just go back and redo the entire thing from scratch?

    I probably would... if it is something I wanted to keep forever, I would probably spend the extra time to make sure it was perfect. What a PITA though!

    I agree that it should be changed to 300dpi. I'm so sorry that happened, though. Definitely a PITA.
