    Hi all.
    I am filling a cd with 12x12 labels to print out on an inkjet printer at a
    later time.
    I need to use jpgs, as I will be sending them to a few people that won't be
    able to use much else and obviously gifs aren't the hot ticket for printing.
    If I scan them at 300dpi, full size, what would be a good size and res, or
    dpi, to drop them down to so that I can get more on the cd, yet allow
    someone to increase the size back to original without losing too much
    I imagine it's a trade-off along the line but I would like to keep
    degradation to a minimum.
    By the way, I am saving them all as psd files and will batch convert them to
    jpgs when I am done.

    The less you reduce them the better.
    Why dont you convert all of them to jpegs at 100% and see what the total
    size is.
    Compare this with the space available for the labels on your cd and reduce
    accordingly ??

    Pretty much how I've been doing it, I just go till the cd is full, I just
    want to cram as much on there as possible!

    Are you saving the entire sheet as a jpeg or just one label?
    Is each label unique or is it a set of identical images?
