[Pro] Freeway & Photoshop

What is the relationship between the dimensions in Freeway and other software packages.
The reason I ask is that I wish to create a header in photoshop that is in pro-rata to my graphic box in freeway.
When I make the same size box in photoshop and import into Freeway it is no where near the same size. Alot smaller.
Graphic box is 920px by 175.
I know this really doesn’t matter that much in Freeway, but would like to get the graphic somewhere near the size it will be in Freeway.
Cheers all.

Hi Mike,

chances are the graphic you made in PS is probably 300dpi ( or ppi )

you need to re-sample it to 72dpi which is web size,

FW should then show it the correct size

Mike is right. Freeway outputs at 72 ppi - that’s pixels per inch,
not ‘dpi’, by the way, which is a similar printer’s measure - and will
make Keith ever so angry! :wink:

However, if you have originals at 300 ppi you can simply scale images
in FW to ‘fit the box’. They will be resampled by FW.

If you prepare images at 72 ppi in Photoshop, they should ‘just fit’
and you can ensure maximum quality by importing them as a passthrough
images, which will not be resampled. Though, to be fair, FW does a
very good sampling and optimisation job.

Right problem, slightly incorrect solution. If it is already the
correct pixel size in Photoshop then don’t resample it.

Instead, open the Image Size dialog and UNcheck the Resample
checkbox. Only then should you change the per-inch value to 72. Doing
otherwise will resample the image to a different pixel size, mucking
things up royally before you even leave Photoshop!

(Note: this is all about pixels per inch, not dots, so it is only
correct to say “ppi”.)

The other option is to just go back to Freeway, select your graphic
box, choose File > Import and pick your image. But before you click
that button to actually import it, click the ‘Ignore Resolution’
checkbox.

The image will be imported at a 1:1, image-pixel-for-screen-pixel
scale rather than the relative scaling set by its embedded ppi
setting.

Combination of Pixelmator and Acorn should get you where you want to go.
