    Default Newb question about seps

    I'm working on separating an 11x17 300 dpi flat file in photoshop for printing transparencies. Is it normal for there to be jagged edges viewed at 100% on screen? Like threshold jagged? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Yes,..just print it out and you will see it. Most monitors do show a bitmap that well compared to vector art (Adobe Illustrator) when you zoom in on it.

    thank you loco.

    also, it seems everything is lining up when viewed at 100% (see first photo), but viewed at about 50% there is a white line dividing the colors. will this show up when i print?

    re: the white line when zoomed to certain screen sizes - as long as it looks correct at 100% zoom you should be good. I get this in photoshop all the time too, I think it has to do with how the program redraws files for faster loading.. but it won't affect printing.

    Thanks guys for the replies! Another question, I'm trying to get some transparencies printed at 12x18 and I'm being quoted $15-20 per transparency. Is this normal?

    When people ask me to output films I charge $15 per foot of film that comes out of the printer (but at your size I would be able to do 2 films at a time, so $15 for 2). People have to cover their overhead yaknow. If you want cheaper than buy your own printer.
