I have a notebook with specification as mentioned below :
Lenovo Ideapad Y470P
I'm using Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit) for doing my job.
Right now, i have a task to create a banner with dimension 800 x 900 Centimeters with Resolution 300 DPI and Color Mode RGB 16 Bit.
The file size when blank is about 56.1 GB.
The problem is, when i add some text with Horizontal Type Tool and click on the Move Tool, the Rendering Type screen show up and take a very very long time to finished.
I have made some configurations to my Photoshop that i found on Adobe Forum, but the problem still persisted.
Some configurations that i've made is :
- Turn off the Automatically Save Recovery Information
- Set Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility to Ask
- Set the Memory Usage to 95%
- Set the Cache Levels to 8 and Cache Tile Size to 1024K
- Set the Graphics Advanced Settings to Drawing Mode Advanced, and Check the option Use Graphics Processor To Accelerate Computation, and Uncheck the option Anti-Alias and 30 Bit Display
- Set the Scratch Disk to another partition ( C:System D:PageFile E:Data F:Scratch Disk)
And after all of that configuration, my Photoshop still slow when Rendering Type.
Could you give me some tips to solve my problem?
Who on Earth needs an 8 x 9 meters banner at 300 ppi? That is absurd! You don't need 300 ppi for a banner that size.
Do you have any idea how long it's going to take just to open or save such a gargantuan file?
…and you want to do this on a notepad? ???
You need to rethink your project.
That depends entirely on the printer. Contact the outfit that is going to print it for you and ask for instructions. I would not be surprised if they ask for less than 100 ppi.
Your projected file size, as you have it now, can only be saved as a PSB file, as it exceeds the limits of the PSD and TIFF formats.
300 ppi for a banner that size is categorically not normal. Guaranteed.
Get specific instructions from the shop that is going to print it.
You keep confusing ppi with dpi. The resolution of an image file really is expressed in ppi, pixels per inch, not "dpi" which is dots per inch. The precise terminology is as follows:
Here's a link to a discussion that may interest you:
It includes the following chart and subsequent comments :
"The rule of thumb is that we need 1.5 to 2 times the LPI in PPI to get acceptable results.
"Viewing Distance Present Study
20 feet greater than 10 LPI
18 feet 18.75 LPI or greater
16 feet 18.75 LPI or greater
14 feet 37.5 LPI or greater
12 feet 37.5 LPI or greater
10 feet 50 LPI or greater
8 feet 65 LPI or greater
6 feet 85 LPI or greater
4 feet 100 LPI or greater
2 feet 133 LPI or greater
1 foot 150 LPI or greater
6 inches 150 LPI or greater
"Presumably, for a banner 3m x 5m, you'd be standing at a minimum of, say, 10 feet. (Just eyeballing the wall here.) So, by this table, you'll need 50 LPI minimum. That would mean your raster graphics should be about 100 PPI, or 75 PPI at 12-14 feet. Considering that and the fact that 2x LPI is pretty conservative for reproducing fidelity (often 1.5xLPI is "enough"), this agrees with [the given] advice of 75 PPI being acceptable."
Talk to your printer. I suspect they will want a file at under 75 ppi, or even much less. Follow the printer's advice/request.
Yes,you are absolutely right dude..
I've found out just by now..
It's very not logical to create a 9 x 8 Meters banner with 300 PPI..
I think i'll create it on 75 PPI..
Thanks for your advice..
