Printing Pages...which File?

5 posts in this topic

It's me again with a question that I'm sure is simple but haven't found out yet.

When you print your scrapbook pages, do you print the PSD file (in PSE) or the JPEG file?

I don't have a printer yet so I will have to go to Kinkos and I'm wondering which file to have.

Thanks
Sheri

Hi Sheri,
I always print from the original working file (PSD) because it's not compressed like a JPEG file. You may not see a difference but after a few "saves" with the JPEG, it could lead to pixilation. It's just safer for me to print from the PSD.

I have never printed.. however I heard someone say they printed theirs in TIF form? I wouldn't take my word for it...

At home, I print from the original, layered .psd file. If I were to print elsewhere, I'd check first what file type they work with best - probably a .jpg or a .tiff file would be OK.

If you are printing at a Staples, Office Max, Kinko's or wherever, check to see what their file-opening fees are. They may well charge you a couple bucks just to open up your file from a CD/DVD or memory card.
