I designed a newsletter using a logo and a topbanner, 2 pages. It is to be send by mail (A4-paper) and by e-mail (pdf). As usual, I used 300dpi for my graphics.
The result is 1.2M in size, which is on the limit for some recipients. Is 300dpi too much? Is there a certein resolution pdflatex uses to scale an image to let's say 5cm? Any experiences, what resolution is good for both, on screen reading and printout? (Home laserprinter)
