D.P.I. is superflous for monitor viewing, WON'T make any visible difference
and of course makes the file sizetoo large and too slow to come up.. My own
experience verifies this. I have scanned some photos to my own web space at
72 DPI in dimensions that would be more than adequate for your needs and
they come up quite rapidly at 72 DPI.
Many web site designers would do well to heed this advice from the pros.
Nothing is more aggravating than an interminable wait to view an image that
is needlesly to large in (file) size.
