what a hassle getting ready. CharlieDIY has done all of the text. I need a
little help on my logo. I don't know how to make a logo that does not fit into
the size they want. I mean I can shrink or expand it but when it is the wrong
shape I don't know how to make borders. they want a logo 120 X 30 PIXELS IN SIZE
and I don't know how to fill in the rest. here are a couple logo's.
You sure you got those dimensions right? You quoted a 4:1 ratio
(length:width), whereas your original is 196x132, or about 3:2. If you
give me a more appropriate ratio, I can easily resize it in Photoshop
Elements. When I resize the original to the noted dimensions, I get a
horizontally stretched image.

Excellent! I'd been trying to get you to hand that portion
of the site over for what, 5 years now? <vbg>
Your existing logo is in a roughly 1.5:1 ratio and you want
it to be 4:1? In that case, we'll have to make the text flat
and put the graphic to the left of the words.

Uh, not the actual site. I did the stuff for Steve's Amazon listing.

ok I am working on getting a tool up on amazon. they use excel for all of the
they want the pictures 72 pixels per inch.
but if I use say acdsee to change a picture I cant' really choose the ppi. how
do I edit the pics to get the right resolution? they don't give a max size so I
can use a decent size picture.

I use ACDSee and I also don't know any way of controlling the PPI. I also
use Photoshop, which will certainly do it, but that would be overkill. I
have Jasc Paint Shop Pro, which can do it and can be had for cheap.
This isn't something you really need to worry about. Most monitors
are in the 72-100 ppi range anyway, so how it looks on your screen is
pretty much what everyone else will see anyway.
But you can do the math in your head pretty easily. A 150 pixel image
would be about 2 inches. Normal reading text is 15 pixels per line or
so, or about 5 lines per inch, so you can figure your image sizes
Note that the PNG image type does allow for specifying the pixels per
inch within the image data, but not all web browsers support PNG yet
If you have any of the Microsoft Office products, they come with Microsoft
Photo Editor and it's really handy for resizing, cropping and if you choose
"File->Properties" it brings up a dialog box that you can change the PPI --
I tried it and it works (from 300 to 72 in my example).
PPI is an *output* or *display* parameter. Perhaps what they
mean is that the image will be displayed at 72 PPI - which is
what most monitors are geared for. They should be able to give
you the pixel dimensions in HxW that will lead to a properly
sized image in their displayed page.
Bottom line - this shouldn't be your concern and makes no sense
for most raster graphic files anyway as you can't specify it in
the internal formats of most of the standard raster image formats.
Pixels/inch is meaningless for on-screen display and often
misunderstood (apparently even by the developers at Amazon.com). All
that matters for on screen display is final dimensions, such as 120x30
PPI (also call dots per inch (DPI)) is ONLY meaningful when printing
an image. It tells the printer what the final size of the image being
printed should be. So if you saved your 120x30 JPG as 120DPI (or
PPI), the image would print 1" by 1/4" in size.
If you told it it was 60 DPI, it would print at 2"x1/2" in size, with
reduces quality, however, since your image still only contains 120x30.
Steve, I resized it for you to 120x30, with whitespace on the left and
right of the image. I don't think you're going to like it, however,
as the logo is very small now. The designer of the logo should have
had the 120x30 in mind when designed so the space could be used
effectively. If you'd like, I can redesign it to help you out.
