Hello, I am currently taking all my photos in RAW then editing and converting to Jpg for submission to Adobe. I looked through some forums and found most people suggesting 300 dpi for conversion output setting, but my scanner has a 600dpi option so for this format do I want to go with a higher dpi setting? All of the posts I've found were mainly talking about converting the photos for printing, but as these will be submissions for Adobe Stock then manipulated later by potential customers do I want to go higher than 300 dpi? I want the submissions to be the best they can be and have always been a fan of overkill. Is there a suggested dpi from Adobe that i haven't found yet? Do i want to go higher than 300 dpi if it's an available option? And if so, what would be an good setting? Thank you for your time. Have a good day.
Adobe don't suggest ppi (dpi) because ppi is abspolutely irrelevant to stock photos. The number of pixels is what matters. The minimum is 4 megapixels, but do not reduce what the camera produces. Nor increase.
300 DPI is fine.
Thank you. I understand I may have been asking the question badly. The editing software I use auto sets it at 350 and while looking through forums I was getting different answers which all seemed plausable.
350 should also be ok. However, for people not understanding the dpi/ppi parameter, 300 dpi/ppi is what is required...
When you change the value just make sure that you not increase or reduce the number of pixels value.

No, surely no value is REQUIRED at all. (Well some number has to be filled in).
But surely the actual number is completely irrelevant.

Correct. But if you do not understand that parameter, simply set it to 300. That will make those happy saying that the picture needs to have 300 dpi. Just do not touch the pixel resolution. 😉
