Can I increase the file size of the layout export?

 

I don't think so.

Why not explain what you are trying to do we may have a better answer?

Its for a pro CD release.

I've read the standard for the file should be 300 or more dpi.

Actually these days its measured in PPI (pixels per inch)

I can increase the size but 96 DPI

is the highest if will go.

Even for services like CD  BABY

they want 300 DPI (PPI).

Okay, you've said it's for a pro CD release but why not explain what you're trying to do - and what you're trying to do it with?

What is a "layout export" and which Roxio program makes one?

We do want to help you, but we need something to work with.

I'm using label creator to design

CD artwork.

I need a .jpg for the pressing plant to print it.

"Export current layout" only gives you 96 dpi

Sorry Zoz, there's no way you can do that with this software.    It's simple, inexpensive, CD labeling software from about 2007, 2008.   

Using "Export Current Layout As Image" with display settings at 'Normal-100%' output is at 96 DPI, as you mentioned.  My disc image shows as 445 pixels in diameter in the saved JPG.     Using Label Creator's View > Zoom 200% I can almost double the size, but the output is fuzzy.   There is no control available in Label Creator to increase definition.

For your project you need to edit at 300 DPI or better, not just magnify a 96 DPI picture in all its splendid fuzziness.     You need a proper graphic editor, not a cheap label maker.

Regards, Brendon

Ok guys thanks

Saving the file after using the collage project software does label the output 300dpi.

If really looks better its hard to say.

Im just trying to please my record label.
