I am in graphics class at my community college. I have a graphics (Photoshop 6) project due in a couple weeks. My question is, I am not sure I am understanding correctly about what type images I can open and use within Photoshop for my project. I was told to use high resolution images of 220 to 240 ppi (not dpi).
I was also told that these images would only be available off a cd-rom or from a graphics, stock-photo outlet. I purchased a cd-rom set of different pics, jpeg, gif, vector art, etc. I noticed that most of the so called "high-quality" photos were in jpeg format, and I checked all the different sets at the store to see if their pics were in another format such as .eps or .psd. All seemed to be in jpeg.
Can a jpeg image be high resolution enough to use in Photoshop?
My project must contain multiple images, must have filter effects used, labeled layers, and a finished printable size of 71/2 by 10 inches.
I am confused as to the high resolution part. The finished product has to be saved in a .eps (encapsulated post script) format to save the information such as layers intact and not flattened.
Can I open and use a jpeg image in Photoshop and then save it in high resolution .eps?
