New Jewelry Listings and DPI vs PPI


Yesterday was the first day I didn’t ship something.

I listed some new items, but three of them are already sold. Yay!

Here’s what sold:

And here’s what’s still available (click the photos for more info):


"1001 Nights"

"Night Life"

So anyway, there may not be anything new listed for a few weeks. Big project coming up and then a new line unveiled.


Chad (a forum member on LE posted the following information and graciously allowed me to repost it here.

There is so much confusion about these kinds of subjects. I find Chad’s explanation really helpful.

DPI is dots per inch. PPI is pixels per inch.

DPI actually has nothing to do with what you see on the screen. It determines how the image is translated to whatever output device it is sent to. When you take a picture and send it to a printer, the resolution of the image should be at least 1/4 the resolution of the printer. So if you have a 1200 dpi printer, the image should be 300 dpi (which is industry standard for color images anyways). A printer converts data into "dots" (for lack of a better term) when it prints it, so the more data, the clearer the picture.

PPI is just a relationship of total pixels to inches. So, if you have a 1000 pixel wide image and set it at 100 ppi, the image will be 10" wide. If you set it at 10 ppi it will be 100" wide, but only on the screen. A pixel has no size in reality. It's just data.
