Photoshop Tip: Large format can be low-res

Check with your printer when creating illustrations destined for large-format printing, such as exhibition graphics.

One rule of thumb is to work at 400dpi in a document a quarter the physical size of the output. At actual size, therefore, the output will be at 100dpi, which is usually fine for the distance at which people will view it.
