If that screen capture is the dialog you get I see resample is not check which is good I also see the three  print  size settings you can change any one of them Photoshop will change the other two.  I see print resolution there you should be able to set it for its not grayed out.??? I also see the image preview in the dialog. The Screem capture does not reflect what you wrote?

 

Perhaps you want Layer transform instead of Image Size.

JJMack thanks for getign back......

The issue is..... I want to check if an image, when I resize it will print at 250dpi+. Am I gettign confused with a AI info box?

 

The above box give me the page overview and NOT the image..... I have to double click for it to open in another window and then I can open image size.... but I need to see the resized image... in place and see the dpi alter as I size it so I can get the image to the max size with out effecting image print resolution.

 

But like I said.... is this an AI info box?

Cheers

OK I do not install AI this is a Photoshop Forum and what you posted looked like a normal Photoshop Images sized dialog.  Perhaps you should ask in the AI forum. 

 

However, Print Resolution is Print Pixels size you can print you image any size you want  by changing the Print Pixel size.  It like TV small a 4K TV have smaller  Pixel size then a wall size 4K TV.  both image are the same size image 3840px by 2160px.

 

Changing the Print rosilution  does not change the Picture at all that just changes the size the print will be not a single pixel is changed.

Are you seeking an Illustrator or Photoshop answer, it is rather confusing from your reply to JJMack. In Illustrator, if you select the image that you have brought in, the information will be available to you, not on the document information, but just above that, where you will see the tool options and the ability to embed or unembed the image. If you are in Photoshop, then as JJMack said, the Print Resolution is the place to look.

In Photoshop, the page is the image. So Image Size is working correctly.

"I have to double click for it to open in another window and then I can open image size"

 

Hi

You've shown us a small snippet of your screen. This sentence suggests that possibly the image is a Smart Object and the "window" you are opening is the psb, but it's hard to tell from what you've said. Can you show a screen shot of your Layers panel? Be sure it is sized tall enough and wide enough that we can see all the layers.

I'm not sure it will help, since every screenshot in this topic refers to Photoshop.

Hi Neil,

 

The first sentence from the OP is "Need to check image resolution, dpi (sic), so that it will print correctly."

 

How does it help to move the thread to Illustrator?

The OP probably needs to check effective resolution.

But since they never gave a description of the actual task, it's difficult to help in any forum.

reading that I took it that they meant the AI info box was confusing them! 

IS IT a Photoshop question? 

think I should move it back?

We need input from the OP, but nothing they posted is an AI info box. If they are confused about what software they use for some similar task in the past, they need to clear that up.

I was inclined to move it there as well, however the situation and what the poster is after is so confusing, I decided to leave it here until there was a little more clarity. Hopefully, they will get the info they need somewhere.
