I purchased a HTML version templates I liked that come with layered .psd file in a seperate folder however these files are saved at 72 dpi. Why?

Second, I saw the same template offered as .psd but it does not say whether it will be at 72 or 300 dpi. IN order to edit .psd, sliced and coding, does it have to be at 300dpi in the first place.

Explain pros and cons.

Thanks, Erik

All print templates must be 300dpi and CMYK . Everything aside from that must not be 300dpi nor CMYK .

Good luck ;)

72 dpi of course; that’s the standard for screen media! for print media you use something above 150 dpi.

Thanks guys.

Okay I am confused.

If I am working with 72dpi file and created a layer for font (text), it does not really look sharp or clean on computer screen. What is the solution?

Thanks :-)

If it’s not your vision, then:
  • Make sure the font’s anti-aliasing is set to Sharp (like here)
  • If you’re working with Windows 7, make sure the ClearType-text is enabled.

And if nothing of that works, re-check your vision :D or that you’re not using a faulty, low-quality font.

Regards,
