SPL Graphics Specification
Graphic Specifications for Labeling
Proposal: Restrict images associated with SPL to 96 DPI to ensure uniform and predictable rendering in downstream uses of SPL.
requirements: min/max size & clarity; under screen and print conditions.
Background from FDA:
- small size internal / NLM pdfs
- in 2005 received bad images (size).
- Most current users have learned; however, new user groups will experience same problems.
Test procedure … print test docs on regular (good quality) office paper. Print is finally what its about. 96 dpi line graphics OK ½ to 2/3 paper width. Greyscale; colour
Technical arguments as to why DPI is not the sole, or even the most important, factor in achieving the stated objective.
What we want is dpi and size – its really size that matters.
