When you upload your PDF to the system for conversion, by default images are downsampled to 125DPI.
This downsampling ensures the best possible performance/speed for your digital edition, smaller DPI = smaller files = faster performance/experience.
Of course you may not be satisfied with the quality of the images at 125 DPI, so we allow you to select the default DPI at the Folder/Title level.
Step 1 Folders/Issues Screen
Step 2 Edit Folder Options
In the bottom left of the Folders/Issues screen you can Edit your Folder options, you can select any item in the dropdown menu on this step
Step 3 Access the Advanced>Parser Defaults screen
Once in this screen you can see the Default Image DPI
The 3 options are:
- 125: Optimized for clarity and download speed
- 150: Better image clarity on zoom, slower to download
- 200: Best image clarity on zoom, slowest to download (not recommended)
- The DPI settings only apply to FUTURE uploads only. Any existing converted titles will not inherit these settings. Make sure to always review your issue within 12 hours of upload and delete if you have any image quality concerns. You could then increase the DPI on the title and reupload using the same Upload
- DPI setting only applies to the DESKTOP platform image quality. Mobile image quality is completely dependent on your original PDF's image quality
Use it to correct problem pages using Page Replace
If you are past the 12 hour grace window and you still have concerns with image quality on some pages, you can increase the DPI and perform page replacements
