Resolution

Hi,

We are licenced users of Aspose.Pdf for .Net.

I need the following information.

What is the max resolution for aspose pdf? We need to be able to create pdfs for the web and for printing. A printable (professional) needs to be 300 dpi, where as a normal pdf is only 72 dpi.

Please let me know.

Thanks,

Gilbert

Dear Gilbert,

You said the normal PDF resolution is 72 DPI, in fact that is the viewing resulution of Adobe Reader but not the resolution of the PDF. The text in PDF is vector so it has no resolutoin. That means the text will not be distorted when you enlarge the PDF. The image in the PDF has resolution if it is not vertor image. In Aspose.Pdf, you can control the image resolution by setting the image width and height. If a image is 300*300 pixels and you set the size to be 1*1 inches in Aspose.Pdf, the resolution is 300DPI. If you set the size to 0.5*0.5 inches then the resolution is 600 DPI.
