    Question internet images and print size...?

    is there any way to consistently control how large a JPEG image will print when printed from a browser?...say if you send people a link of a jpeg coupon on your site.

    or is PDF the only answer?

    thanks,
    Leon

    What I would do is size the image in your print css in inches:

    Code:
    img.coupon {
     width: 8in;
     height: 2.5in;
    }
    …and save the img with a really high resolution, like 300dpi. Printing the image should result in a fairly consistent, high-quality print.

    You can use the
    Code:
    @media print
    rules to set the look of a page when it prints.
