As I took and passed my CPP exam years ago, I own Photography by London, 8th ed. I really can't go into a lot of details right now(especially in a semi-public forum), but I was hoping that somebody who owns the 9th edition can help me out. I am particularly interested in what the book has to say about resolution and high-resolution. If you have a copy of the 9th ed. could you please look it up in your book and let me know what is said?

My copy will arrive tomorrow. If no one posts by then, I'll let you know when I get it...J

HUGE difference between 8th and 9th! (namely, there are a lot of answers in 8 that are wrong. Check out www.LearnwithBetsy.com for more info on that.) Howard - check out this website... it's the study guide for v9. It's a really good study tool. http://wps.prenhall.com/hss_london_photo_9/

So where in that site does it discuss erroneous answers? I looked it over and all I found was a bunch of references to miscellaneous parts of the book - no section on errata...

Stephanie,

I had already looked at the study guide hoping that what I needed was there. Without giving too many details, my client complained to the BBB and I need to be able to support my position that a file I gave my client was high resolution. I'm hoping the Photography book has a paragraph or two that describes what is high resolution and I can cite it in my defense.

My bad, I meant there were a lot of mistakes that have been found in the study guide. Answers like "Incorrect - 9. Answer C. Your answer - C." I didn't really notice any in the book.

Sorry Howard - I hope that situation clears up for you.

High, compared to what? High enough for what stated purpose? I'm going to be surprised if you find an indisputable answer anywhere.:)

And that I've learned is the crux of the matter. The files were not as big as they wanted so now they are saying I didn't give them high resolution files.

If they just want bigger files, just go back into LR and reconvert them into 16 bit (or even 32 bit) TIFF's

(I know, I know, he was asking a serious question and I had to go make a lame joke... but that's just me - sorry Howard...)

Howard, I'm not sure if anyone answered your question or not. I just pulled my 9th ed. and don't find it actually quotes what is considered high resolution, but udner the scanning information is a list of scanning resolutions for intended uses.
Internet - 72 ppi
newspaper - 150 ppi
photographic-quality print - 240-360 ppi
glossy magazine, book - 400 ppi
I don't know if that helps you at all, but that's out of the textbook. The glossary did not define "high resolution" - Good luck

The definition of High Resolution depends on whether you are supplying it or requesting it.:D

Dave,

While you think you are joking, that is the WHOLE crux of the problem! But in the meantime, I did find some quotes from Gary Fong on his forum which supported my position.
