saving psb file as jpg

1. Description; I have a sign business and have to design very large files for print. For wide formatt printing the files standard is 150 dpi at size.....the file can be a pdf or a jpg. As we all know there is a limit on pdf sizes but up until now I used to be able to flatten a file and save as a jpg regardless of size. Not now. I have been all over google and adobe trying to figure out how to still do that. After 3 hours of frustration I called tech support and the kind woman got on my computer. She had to save as a copy but could only save it at 100 dpi. In this case it is for a big banner on a football field and the resolution will be ok from a distance. But we also do murals where it must be 150 dpi.

 

2. Value - This is going to screw with my industry. I am begging you to please bring back save as legacy files...so I can save large jpgs. I am not sure at this point if I am even going to remember how the tech support did this for me.  I hoping you make this change. Thank you!

How many pixels?

 

A mural doesn't have to be 150 ppi. That's way overkill and just wasted.

 

The rule of thumb is that if your file is more than around 20 000 pixels long side, you need to think about whether it's really needed. Usually it isn't.

It's PPI, not DPI.

 

What pixel dimensions is the PSB (300,000px max dimensions on the longest edge)?

 

Some file formats like PSD or Photoshop PDF have a limit of 30,000px on the longest edge.

 

I can save a JPEG at a canvas size of 65,500 x 65,500px 8bpc no alphas (I gave up trial and error at that point).

@Stephen_A_Marsh  Yeah, I keep forgetting what the formula for viewing distance is. That's why I made that illustration, just to show the principle. But for specific cases you need to see the numbers.
