Introducing Scribus

Scribus is a full-featured desktop publishing application that works with a paste-up model, not the typewriter model of word processors. Learn to create industry-standard PDF documents for print.

Peter Linnell is an IT consultant and principal of Atlantic Tech Solutions in New England, specializing in networks, pre-press and DTP. A self-described “Windows refugee”, the Scribus Project is the first open-source project he has worked on. He is working studiously on gaining a Red Hat Engineers' certification to complement his Microsoft and CompTIA certifications. He eschews all claims to geek status, hopefully proven by marrying a lovely French lady, preferring Bordeaux to Jolt cola and traveling to Europe as much as possible.

DPI doesn't matters in Web

José Antonio Meira da Rocha's picture

In Web, DPI (dots per inch) does not make sense, as computer monitor use pixel measurement units, not inches. In Desktop Publishing softwares, DPI is just used as a reference to place and scale bitmap images. What really matter, in both web and print, is the size of image in pixels (width and height). Press jobs need big images (200-300 pixels for each inch of printed image) to be printed with quality. Just changing the Web image DPI doesn't make it suitable for print, as the width in pixels is not changed.
