Question 1: Does it look good at that size? Your image will look good because most people will only look at it from afar. If it is at a trade show and depending on where exactly it is, no one may be able to get close to the image. Much more about this can be read here: How do I generate high quality prints with an ink jet printer? Using Patrick Hurley's ...


The comments have really answered the question here: The behaviour you're seeing is as you should expect. The settings for adjustment layers alone have no equivalence in any of the TIFF content standards. TIFF does allow for vendor specific extensions and this would be an example of one but saving to a nonstandard TIFF would be pointless if nobody could ...


There are several things to consider. First 8x8 means the photo is being cropped to your short side which is 3456 pixels. This gives us 36 PPI, which is way low if we are viewing close up, but if the distance is 20 foot away, there is not an issue. As you get closer, the resolution will be an issue, so the real question is now our expected viewing distance. ...


The idea is that you don't want to be applying compression to the image that will result in reduced quality. Tiff is a lossless image format and so it will preserve the raster data perfectly fine. I'm unsure about ProPhoto RGB as I've never worked with it. The one thing that is worth noting is that you will need to make sure your adjustments to your RAW ...


Great question, horrible answer, especially from the guy who say TIFF-GOOD PSD=BAD This is from the adobe site. Key words are in the 1st paragraph Only PSD and PSB support ALL PS features. Good to be informed Photoshop format (PSD) Photoshop format (PSD) is the default file format and the only format, besides the Large Document Format (PSB), that supports ...


From personal experience with art prints, there are special cases in which using JPEG, even at highest quality can ruin the print. That happens mostly when you have smooth gradients and/or dark regions such as in this one: http://fav.me/d55guh4 . Smooth gradients are ruined even by the best JPEG format - you get banding and it can show really badly on a ...
