Image sizing issues
Hey they everyone, I running into an issue while trying to make a photo book through Lulu and was wondering if I could get a hand.
With the cover image of the book I first brought an image in and was given a warning sign. This warning states that some parts of my image may not appear clear, that I should choose a differnt image and a different image frame. This warrning was understandble as the image appears way to larg for the fram of the cover. After I removed the image from the book I looked at the recomended size for that frame. The recommended size is 9.13" x 3.61" or 2738 x 1083 pixels at 300 dpi. In to photoshop I go now to edit my image down to size to fit onto the cover. Low and behold though that when I view the image size, the image it at 1539 pixels by 1040 pixels at 300 dpi.
My question is, why does my image appear to be incredibly large and to big for the frame? When in fact it is smaller then the recomendations that are appearing in the frame from lulu's book studio. On top of all this I tried resizing it anyway and took it down quite a lot actually. I brought it down to about 1100 pixels by around 800 so this time sigifigantly smaller then the recomendations and the issue still occured. In fact it hardly made any difference if even any at all.
Can anyone please lend me a hand with under standing the sizing specifics for the photo books?
