    the most you need is 300PPI - pixels per inch

    you should be able to set that in elements

    any reason you want to go as high as you are ?

    300 is recognised as the highest quality setting for printing

    That's my thinking also
    Maybe samuelsteam is confused by the printer specs that say it's max resolution is 3600x1200 dpi ... Here
    (This has me curious/confused also .. But that's easy to do)

    Or by the Photoshop Image size settings ??? .. YouTube Tutorial
    I'm guessing the confusion is Photoshop's image size settings

    By far and away the most confusing and misunderstood subject in the digital photography/printing world.

    There are thousands of articles about it and it still remains puzzleing to most.

    My guess as well...Photoshop uses them interchangeably.

    What are these Photoshop Image size numbers ????
    Height, Width and Resolution ... And what physical size are you trying to print ???
    Do NOT Resample .. (until you know what you're doing) ... Your Elements will look different but the Image size task is the same.
    Do Not confuse the Canvas size .. That's a different subject
