Standard Point size stroke for Photoshop.... 8/8
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:12:25 PM »
What point size stroke are most of you using in Photoshop? 300 DPI files.
Asking for a friend :)   My design guys is out for a few days and
I have to output some raster art.

Thanks.  John

I use 3 px for photoshop, and 1.35 pt for illustrator.  Both set to align to center.

At 300 dpi - 1 pixel.

At 600 dpi - 3 pixels.

All to the inside.

Your mileage will vary :)

Your size will determine your stroke. ;)
Small imprints like left chest and Pocket prints, (if I get my way) I do at 600ppi and stroke/choke 3 pixels.
I'd like to do 1.5 at 300ppi, but can't do that so...I go 2 pixels.  I tried just one, but it causes some issues at times depending.
