my site displays ps jpgs, I want people to download and print them as large posters. The images look beautiful onscreen,but they are actually only 3 inches wide and the larger you print the fuzzier they become ! I want to say "download print version here" so can I link them to large tiff files and do they need to be compressed ? So I.m linking to a zip file ?

What pixel dimensions are the high-quality TIFs you're thinking of linking to?

I would think large-pixel-dimension JPGs that have been saved with the highest quality would be almost indistinguishable from TIFs and a bit smaller to download.

My original tiff is 1700x2220 (8.5x11) which will size up nicely for the large posters. The jpg is 500x653 (2.5"x3.26"). Both tiff and jpg are 200 dpi. I've tried printing the jpg at 200% enlargement and it doesn't look good so I can imagine how bad it will look at poster size. So how do I offer a tiff for download ? My 8.5x11 tiff is 10.5 mg Did you get my last download or should I do it again ?Thanks ! Carol

You could post the large Tiff (or a higher resolution JPEG or PDF file) to Creative Cloud and share it via a URL.

Log into Adobe and navigate here:

https://assets.adobe.com/files

Drag the Tiff file to the browser window.

Once it's done uploading, click on the down arrow on the thumbnail for the image you just uploaded and select "Send Link..." to get a URL you can use to share your file.
