Hey you corporate dog&pony show producers and high school A/V club presidents, I need some advice.
I’m making a very important slide-type presentation this week. Basically I’ll show about 20 images in linear sequence on command – no fancy bells or whistles.
I just bought a scanner and I’ve got Photoshop to tweak the raw images. I plan to build my presentation in Powerpoint on a laptop. I will stand at the podium with my laptop. The my laptop will be wired to a projector that will throw the image up on a big screen in front of the auditorium.
Now, here’s my issue. Can I be confident that if the image looks good (that is, sharp and smooth-edged) on my laptop screen it will look just as good when projected? Or might it get noticeably pixilated or otherwise yucky when enlarged? If so, is there a safe size/resolution/whatever I should use when loading the image?
