    PPI is just a conversion factor between the images's actual pixel dimensions and its displayed size in inches. Don't worry too much about what you see in Photo RAW while editing. When it is time to export your photo for printing then you can set the PPI to Pure Art's recommendations.

    I use them for my metal printing too, Mitchell is a great guy. I've never had a problem with the files I've sent him. I think his concern about increasing the PPI is about upsizing the image. If it's 8x10 inches @ 72ppi and you just reset that to 300ppi you're going to get a much smaller image. It becomes 1.92x2.4 inches.

    As long as the file has the pixel dimensions to support the printed size you want @ 300 ppi you're good to go. If it doesn't then you have to use the Resize module to upscale it.

    Brian, thanks for your clear explanation; my mind will be at ease when I send the file to Mitchell for metal printing.
