Problem Printing Downloads?
I have received a couple of emails from people having trouble printing the Download Textures. The resolution (Hi 150 and LO 72) affect only the PIXEL quality, what you see on screen and NOT the size of the image on paper. when you open the image to print, select "PAGE SET UP" screen from your Printer's Menu and make sure the paper is horizontal and Scaled at 100% and at the size of 8.5" X 11". This should tell your computer the proper way to print the image.
