I created a logo using Adobe Illustrator 10 and drag and dropped it in a Photoshop 7 file to be printed. The photoshop 7 file was 300 dpi and when I brought the logo in in got really small so I increased the size in Photoshop. When I sent it to the printer he said everything was fine except the logo was jaggy looking. Do you know why?

    Both the logo file and the photoshop file where both 8.5 x 11 in size. I am not aware that you can lower or increase the dpi or resolution in an adobe illustrator 10 file. If you can please tell me how.

    Also, I might add this Photshop file printed fine on my laser printer, even the logo. The file was saved in a pdf format and emailed. The only thing jaggy according to the printer was the logo.

    That is exactly what I did. The photoshop file was 300 dpi and I drug the logo from the Illustrator file into the 300 dpi photoshop file.

    The size decreased a lot. So I then sized it up in photoshop. It looked fine, printed fine for me on my laser printer but after I saved it as a pdf and emailed it to a printer. He said the logo was jaggy. He wanted the Illustrator file emailed so he could fix the problem. I asked him to tell me what he did to fix it. He did not get back to me and is now on vacation until mid January. Nice, huh.

Resolution is a hard thing to grasp. I'm guessing the original logo created was either a low DPI and/or a small physical size. For example if you create a 1in x 1in logo at 300 DPI and increase the size to 4in x 4in at 300 DPI - the image does not contain small enough pixels to give a quality image (1 pixel is translated to 4 giving jagged edges). I hope this helps.

    Sorry, I was forgetting Illustrator is creates Vector images. It appears the image is losing resolution when you drop it into PhotoShop. Create a blank new image in PhotoShop and set the resolution to 300 DPI or higher as the default is 72 DPI then drop your Illustrator image into it.

    maybe the image lost quality in the conversion to PDF. You know you can save as PDF from Illustrator as well?

I need to see the manual for Adobe Photoshop Elements. I have the system installed but I need instructions and I don't see why I should pay for it.

Whch version of Photoshop Elements do you have? Adobe doesn't seem to have a manual for version 10 of the program on their support site. If you have an install disc, look for pdf, html and video tutorials.

Otherwise try these links:

Getting Started (videos and some html files) ,
Using Photoshop Elements: . This page has a series of web pages on what the Elements workspaces look like and how to do specific tasks, and
Photoshop Elements Organizer: .

I wish that I could be of more help.

You can use Adobe Photoshop to edit the files in the nikon format or if you just want to view them you could use a .nef to .jpeg converter. I found one that will convert a batch of .nef files to .jpeg by just dragging and dropping them. You can find that here:
