    Granny, I noticed that if I change the ppi from 200 to 300 or even to 100 the tiles change size. What range can we use realistically for these? I guess it would depend on if we were printing or just keeping on the computer for slide shows, etc? Is there a way to change the dpi for each item or just for the entire page?

    Melanie... I exported them at 200 ppi. That should be plenty for whatever size, but Fiona is the expert in that department. Ppi is different from dpi, but they both live in the wrong side of the tracks. It has to do with their uncle Harry getting too familiar with cousing Louis, whe needless to say, don't even have a printer. Now, ain't you glad I'm handling the challenge this week, since I know every thing?

    Wolvsie, baby, so glad to have you around. No problem with the dog picture, she is adorable. Better looking than any bride I ever saw. I hate weddings, anyhow!!!

    DPI is probably the most familiar and most misused measure of resolution.
    It is the measure of how many dots of ink or toner a printer can place within an inch (or cm).
    Most printers print the same number of dots horizontally and vertically, though some may have differing numbers. Basically, 300 dpi printers print 300 tiny little dots across one inch and 300 dots vertically for one inch

    The term dpi (dots per inch) is relevant only when printing.
    In printing, dpi is the measure of printed image quality on the paper.
    Pixel dimensions are relevant to all images displayed on a computer.
    This is sometimes called ppi or pixels per inch. A high-resolution monitor setting will display more pixels per inch.

    soooooo Basically the term DPI refers to the resolution of the printing device, where PPI refers to the resolution of the image itself

    Even though "dots per inch" (DPI) and "pixels per inch" (PPI) are used interchangeably by many, they are not the same thing.

    Pixels per inch (PPI) refer to the square pixels in a digital image, which are in contact with the adjacent pixels.
    There is no space between the pixels. The PPI is the display resolution - not the image resolution.

    A simple example:
    If you have an image that consists of only 1 green pixel. That's it. The whole image is one pixel big - 1 PPI
    Then you print it on a printer that doesn't have a green ink cartridge, but it has blue and yellow.
    The printer will then print one blue dot, and one yellow dot in order to get a green dot. So, your file was 1 PPI, but the printer had to print 2 DPI to render it correctly.

    now that your brain is screaming for mercy the reason why the ppi images change size when you change the dpi is.....cos they can...no thats not it *slaps self* lol ....it's because no many how big or small you make the dpi the image will automatically change to having it's original quota of ppi - clear as mud huh

    Ok, that does it... Any one else asks a profane... Ops, I mean, profound question in this here challenge, and you'll be banned for the rest of forever!!!!!!!!! You think I got brains or something?

    ps: Thanks, Fiona... Now I'm really confused! Confounded!!

    <rotfl at Granny> I meant when I change the ppi under the page>settings>size. The......what am I trying to say......the number of tiles.......the REPEAT of the pattern.... changes with the ppi. So does it matter what ppi I set it for? If I want the tiles spread out more or repeating more often, can I change the ppi? And can it be done on each paper scrap differently or is it just the page size that's being affected?

    Sorry Granny, I hope this question wasn't too profound. I'd really hate to be banned.

    O.K. Thanks for getting my imagination going again Granny! I enjoyed this one! I used your beautiful tiles to make the background and made some into shapes using some of Fiona's (a.k.a. angelwithin) assorted shapes. I also used some jewel embellishments from Bobby Bear and a tag of mine to complete the look.

    Melanie, sorry, I did not understand. RD has a mega render option where you can make the tiles larger, but they do loose sharpness. You have raised some very good questions here, but I'm sorry to say I don't know. I have never thought about it. Tiles will not always work good as a background or paper scrap. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and have a huge file size by making a full page background. But if you look in my gallery or my store, you will notice that most of my work is done with seamless tiles.

    Sorry, it's early in the morning and the gears are stuck in the frozen position. By the end of the day, they will have move about 1/8"!

    Debby. Great job. I love the picture too! And the way you used the crystalls is awesome!

    Also, I realize now that I did not give you the best choice of tiles to work with. I'm just trying to get you all to realize the potential behing using seamless tiles for your work. Specially when there is a lot of contrast between the tiles in a group.

    I have attached another set of tiles that a close in colors to the first ones. Just to give you a little more range.

    Enjoy!
