need some basic photoshop help

this is embarrassing.

i did everything right, it took me a week.
but because i have to use 3 different programs to get one piece of work ready for pdf file, my images end up going from 947 km to 4 MB
the final product can not be over 300 MB

is there a way to change DPI to 300 in photoshop 7?
if so, this solves all my problems. please can someone help me?

Thank you
Heather

ps. i guess it doesn’t really matter, because when i save things
in photoshop as a pdf, no matter even if i do all my editing in photoshop
when i save it 300 dpi as a pdf each file is 9mb. is there any way
around this?

    Go to “Image/resize/image size” and you’ll see a panel come up. The first option shows pixel dimensions, the second document size with width, height and resolution. Resolution is the one you want to change. Make sure “constrain proportions” is checked. That way, you won’t change your image dimensions.

    Hope this helps!

  • basically i opened my image in corel X3 because there i can control the size it has to be for the magazine. (i don’t know how to do this in photoshop)
    then i get it perfect, can move it around (again, i don’t know how to do this in photoshop). then i save it. then i put it through photoscape, which allows me to DPI it to 300 or more, but it doubles/triples the MB size. then i put it through photoshop to change colour to cmky and to save as pdf. then by that time it’s 4-8 mb a page. can I do all of this in photoshop 7? pretty please can you bmail me as i’m beyond retarded at photoshop, i don’t even know how to copy and paste in there or layer, where as it’s a cinch in every other program.
    sigh thank you for your help mike

    Heather,
    If you goto the menu bar at the top and click on image, then resize, then you can adjust the resolution (DPI), height, width, etc…-
    Let me know if that works for you.

    If your problem is final file size, [which is a common issue] Mail attachment limits, CD and DVD limits. Skip trying to compromise your graphic file. Use the batch file method I mentioned in the other related post. Cut the file into the bite-sized chunks you need, send them seperate to be combined when they reach the client. This approach will cure just about any limitation situation
