Hello

  1. Open a blank document that has 300 dpi print resolution, 9″ x 9″ in dimension. This creates a blank document 2700×2700 in pixel dimension.
  2. Fill white in it if it is not already filled
  3. Choose “View/Print Size” from the menu.
  4. With a ruler and be careful not to damage your screen, measure in inches the displayed dimensions. It is likely to be smaller than 9 inches
  5. Divide 9 inches by the screen measurement you obtain which will provide the correction factor.
  6. Now find the screen resolution. Most likely it is set at 72 pixels/inch by

 Going to “Edit/Preferences/Units & Rulers” and multiply the current ppi, 72, by the correction factor you calculated earlier and enters that in the screen resolution field. Then click OK.

And it's done 🙂

1. Create a blank document that has 300 dpi print resolution, 9″ x 9″ in dimensions.
2. Fill it with white.
3. From the menu choose “View/Print Size”
4. With an accurate ruler measure the displayed dimensions in inches.
5. Divide 9 inches with actual measurement and the answer is your correction factor.
6. Now, go to “Edit/Preferences/Units & Rulers” and find the screen resolution. Most likely it is set at 72 pixels/inch.
7. Multiply the current ppi, 72, by the correction factor and enter in the place of 72ppi.
8. From now when you choose “View/Print Size” your screen will display the actual dimensions of the print.

Hi Zcell,

      You can easily resize an image according to print by following method.

  • First you have to create a blank document which has 300 dpi resolution 9”x9” dimension and 2700×2700 pixel dimension.
  • If it is not filled then fill it by white color.
  • Go to the menu and select View/print size
  • Then you should measure the accurate dimension by a accurate ruler. It always should be less than 9 inch.
  • Then you have to go to “Edit/Preferences/Units & Rulers” and figure out Screen resolution. It should be settled at 72 pixels per inch.
  • Then you need to multiple the current ppi, 72 by the correction factor and click ok.
  • I hope you will get your solution from above.

Hello…

It is very simple, your solution is as follow…

  •  Firstly you have to create a blank document having 300 dpi print resolution, 9″ x 9″ in dimensions. A blank document 2700×2700 in pixel dimensions will be created.
  •  Then simply fill it with white if it is not already filled.
  •  Choose View/Print Size from the menu.
  •   Now you should use accurate ruler to measure accurate dimension. It should be less than 9 inch.
  •   Division of 9 inches by the actual measurement shown on your screen will provide the correction factor.
  •   Find the screen resolution from the Edit/Preferences/Units & Rulers. It should be set at 72 pixels/inch.
  •   Multiply the current ppi, 72, by the correction factor you calculated earlier and enter that in the screen resolution field. Now click OK.

   Now your required print size is ready 🙂
