If your image resolution is too small, the print driver will scale it up
and it will look blurry.
I want to make a 8.5''x11'' flyer with images i am opeing as layers. I scaled
all of my images (with scale tool) and when i printed the finished flyer
everything looked fuzzy. The wierd thing, is that even the text is fuzzy and i
added it with the text tool.
To be reasonably sharp and image should be at least 150 pixels/inch
(photography) or 300 PPI (text/logo/CGI). For 8.5"x11", this is
1275x1650 pixels @150PPI or 2550x3300 pixels @300PPI.
If you are using a regular display, its resolution is around 100PPI, so
the images on it are 1.5x-3.0x bigger than in print when Gimp displays
the image "dot for dot" (which is the defaut).
