I am going to send a batch of 12 x 12 lo's to Scrapping Simply for printing. Do I need to do anything before I upload them to SS? Do I need to change the dpi setting. Their website, under FAQs says they suggest the dpi for printing. I am not sure about this, is this what I need to do with each layout? TIA

The layouts you create at 300 pixels per inch are great for printing. You don't need to change it as long as it is close to what they require. I don't have experience with that particular site, but I for every other site I've uploaded to, 300 ppi was just fine.

I use 300 for the layouts I've sent to Staples for printing and they turned out just awesome!

This is the company I use for any printing not done at home - and yes, I leave all mine as 12x12 300 dpi .jpg layouts - so when done with a layout (.psd) I "save as" a .jpg and that's what I upload to them.

HTH:)
