I've built a handsome table in PP8 which I want to export to my web site as a graphic. When I use the Export as Picture command, there's no place to enter desired DPI, and the resulting output is blurred and unattractive. I think the command is assuming 72 or 96 dpi -- is there a place to override this? Any suggestions for techniques to make the output appear as sharp as the original? Thanks ...
It's been a given for so many years, I can't remember the background on this but 72 ppi is the default for web graphics...I don't believe gifs can save at any higher a resolution? (#$*&grumble, grumble...I used to know all this...if I FINALLY locate my reference books in storage I'll look it up for you.) Anyways, I have never worked a job where you aren't expected to create all web graphics to display at 72 ppi.
Thanks, Geoff, but I've already used this dialog to specify everything from 72 to 300 dpi (figuring, at 300, that I'd use PhotoPlus or IrfanView to resize the generated image). The table contains several uncommon fonts. Regardless of the output resolution I specify, the text in the table is not sharp, though by fiddling I've got it to be readable.Perhaps that's the best I can do. Certainly, when the table is downsized from its construction size to the size it will appear on the finished page, its visible sharpness will increase.
Hold the search for the reference books :-) -- I understand, and I also found the dialog box in the Xport as Picture sequence which allows me to specify output res. But because my 72 and 96 dpi attempts aren't sharp when I view them, I thought I would try to export the table at 300 dpi and then reduce it using PhotoPlus or IrfanView to see if that produced a sharper image. I'm still fiddling ... Thanks for your response.
