    Unhappy 90X60 cms prints! Help!

    Hey guys!

    Im looking for help because there is this art contest that i want to participate in, but, i need to make a poster 90X60 cms and i have this issues:

    1.-Due to the size of the image to print my poster, do i need to make it 300 dpi?
    Cause normally 300 dpi works great when im looking at it very closely like a magazine or book, but for a poster this big can i print it with less dpis or does it really need 300 dpi to look cool? Or is it just ok 200dpi or 150dpi on 90X60 cms?


    2.- Its enormous and making a single stroke on my wacom tablet on photoshop cs6 is just a nightmare, its sooo slow (even if i adjunst the brush spacing)!!!
    So making a digital painting is not an option at this size and resolution!

    What can i do?!

    Thanks for your time!

    you can go as low as 150 dpi. Even lower but it depends from various things. If you can manage this 150 dpi, I think you are doing well. It doesn't harm if you can use higher resolution thou.

    go with 300 dpi, but lower size of canvas, go with 6k pixels on longer side and you are good

    Thats the same as using 170 dpi in that original size.

    It's no use to make canvas smaller and stick with 300 dpi if the result will still be the same 60x90 cm. I think it's always better to use asked measurements so there will be no mistakes with scaling and proportions.
