So, I am going to do my first printing when I get my printer, I have always done the printing at a lab.

Please tell me if this is correct...

When I look at the image size of my photo in photoshop, it shows that it the resolution 180 DPi and it is 27.644 wide and 15.556 high. Now, my understanding is that to make a large print (11x17 or 13x19) i need to raise the resolution to 300. And, it is also my understanding that if I UNCHECK the "resample image" box and raise the resolution to 300, it will tell me the largest I can make a print.

So, when I do this, at 300 DPI, photoshop says that the size is now is 16.587 wide and 9.333 high.

Does this really mean that I can not print an 11x17 or 13x19 with the images from my camera?


Can the resolution be set below 300 to print large size images.


DO I have all this wrong to begin with.

I would REALLY APPRECIATE some feedback!

Woops, I meant to say that photoshop is showing 180 PPI for my photos. So how do I know if I can make a 13x19 print. My photos are 7.5 MB large.
