Hi Markosias, nice card.

The jpg image you send Skad should be 2.5" x 3.75" and no lower a resolution than 300 dpi. Making the image smaller doesn't automatically reduce the dpi (dots per inch). So as long as the original Dover images you used were at least 300 dpi and  larger than the finished card you can make the size (or the proportions) correct and it'll be OK.

If the original image was less than 300 dpi you'll need to do some fiddling - either rescan if you scanned the originals from a Dover book yourself, or (if the images came on a CD) adjust the dpi to 300 dpi while the image is large before adjusting the size to make it correct for the card. Needless to say, the image will need to be a few times larger (in size) than the finished card for this to work - it's no good just changing the dpi if the original images are only slightly larger than the finished card before reducing the size, as it won't have much effect (unless the dpi is very large, which is unlikely).

The proportions should be correct too.

Hope this helps,

Pen
