Noah Russaw GRA-220 Intro to Digital Imagining 5-1 Journal 20180205 The differences between how a designer saves web and print documents seemed minimal to me at first but upon further research I found that it is one of the most important steps in design. When designing a print ad, the designer will generally choose 300 PPI because that offers the best quality for the print which is a key factor when people are looking at something. When designing a web ad however, designers usually use a PPI around 72 because it maintains the image quality throughout the variety of different resolution screens that may see the image. Another difference between web and print is the way they are formatted. Web images and ads are compressed to decrease the file size to allow it to be displayed on websites and in the required locations due to size constraints. Because these images are composed of pixels the quality of the image changes when the image is resized especially when enlarging an image because it also enlarges the tiny pixels. Print images however are known as vector images

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
