I upload photos at 300 DPI. 

Why when I download the project, it is at 96 DPI?

 

Now months later, all projects I did are now garbage, because I need 300 DPI.

Can I ask do you have the free or premium version of Adobe Express, or have it as part of a Creative Cloud subscription?

 

What type of project were you creating?

 

In this reply last year the answer given is: the max is 20in by 20in or 6000 x 6000 pixels at 72dpi. The resize option is needed if you want to resize an existing project and like mentioned, it does require a paid/premium membership.

 

You can choose Custom for size and enter the pixel dimensions you require. The number of dpi at download is not as important as the number of pixels in the project. For example:

 

3000 x 2400 pixels at 72dpi = 41.6ins x 33.3ins, not a size we could print at home;

3000 x 2400 pixels at 300dpi = 10ins x 8 ins, a decent size to print a photo at home.

 

Therefore a project downloaded at 72ppi - pixels per inch - can be changed to 300ppi for decent printing IF there is enough pixel information. For displaying on the web there's no requirement to need the higher pixel image, which is why I asked wat typw of project you were creating.

DPI is inportant. 

I am not resizing anying. It is a projust that I create at 6000x6000.

The fonts are OK, But the images are not. Resizing have nothing to do with anything, when I already start with 6000x6000.

So how can you change it after you download it?

The ppi has no effect on the quality. Why do you believe it has ruined your pictures, they are the same? The internet is full of myths about ppi from people who know nothing about it.

No, it really doesn't. I would tell you if it did; the information I gave you is exactly what I've used myself to create printed photobooks, printed cards, printed journals. Read again the measurements I gave above:

 

3000 x 2400 pixels at 72dpi = 41.6 inches x 33.3 inches, not a size we could print at home;

3000 x 2400 pixels at 300dpi = 10ins x 8 ins, a decent size to print a photo at home.

 

Both images have the same number of pixels; they are just dispersed differently. In the 72ppi image they are further apart, 72 to the inch, to give a larger image that would be fine when viewed from a distance e.g. a poster or advert, or on a computer screen. In the 300ppi image they are squashed together; now there's 300 pixels to an inch, they take up less room, we get good quality images from our printers. But the number of pixels has not changed. 

 

You told us your photos were uploaded at 300dpi, but you never mentioned the size of your project. So, you have projects created at 6000 x 6000 pixels per inch into which you have put your 300ppi photos? Do you resize the photos at all? Put more than one on a page? What is the project for? And once downloaded what are you doing with them? Where are these huge images being printed?

 

I know that's a lot of questions, but to know why you find the quality of your projects so unusuable I have to try and work out what it is you're trying to achieve.

I'm using the for print on demand. For shirt I think they will be OK.

But the posters they was a minimun size, and a minimun of 200 DPI.

I just upload the photo as is, whichever dimension it is, then just put a board on it.

 

The 6000x6000 is just the t-shirts designs.

The first step I would suggest is set the project size before uploading any image. So from the Projects page click the + icon and choose custom graphic to set your document size. Then once it is open upload your image and make your edits as necessary. 

 

With the file size limited to 6000 x 6000 pixels it is likely that you won't necessarily be able to upload iamges for all items to print on demand. Some do have larger dimensions.

It does not matter, I've tried all of them. Create a custom size and add image to that.

I've also did create from image.

They all download at 96 DPI.

Oh, yes, of course. And this is now preventing you from uploading to a print on demand site, but with your previous projects you could upload them and this is why they are now garbage?

 

I'm not sure there's a way around this. It seems that once you have created the image in Express and downloaded it you will need another program e.g. Photoshop to alter the pixel resolution so that the print on demand site accepts it.

It's possible that the software or platform you are using to download the project is automatically reducing the DPI to 96. This could be due to settings in the software or platform, or it could be a default behavior.

To avoid this issue in the future, you may want to try the following:

  1. Check the download settings: Make sure that the software or platform you are using to download the project is not set to reduce the DPI automatically. Look for any settings that might be affecting the DPI of the downloaded files.

  2. Export the files in the correct DPI: If you have the option to export the files from the software or platform at the correct DPI (300), do so. This will ensure that the files are downloaded at the correct resolution.

  3. Contact support: If you're still having trouble, you may want to contact the support team for the software or platform to see if they can help you resolve the issue.

In the meantime, you may want to see if there's any way to upscale the images to 300 DPI, although this may result in some loss of quality. You could try using software that specializes in upscaling, or you could consult a professional graphic designer or photographer for assistance.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions or if there's anything else I can assist you with.

No it did not help. You customers helped me better then you and the support does.

Evendently, this site is locked at 96DPI. And you should know there's no way to change it on this site.
