I want to make my own cover art for some cases. Can you tell me what size in pixels to make the image?
Thanks,
Mike

What's the resolution you seek? Is it 600dpi? 1200dpi? 1400dpi?

600 dpi should be fine, I think.
Thanks,

don't confuse DPI with pixels/inch. Most color printers will print a photo quality picture at 300 pixels/inch.
Remember it take one of each of a CYMK dot to defined each pixel. That means you get 4 or more ink dots per pixel plus some white space.

if you're using photoshop you can change the measure to inches, then just measure the case, and change it back to pixels to get the pixel size.. I'd do it but I'm at work with no cases
