At a RHS advisory day recently the guy was very knowledgeable about printing and paper, I think he works for Fotospeed but could be wrong. Anyhow he told us the optimum ppi for different printer makes, 720 being best for Epson and I use this now as default. Photo magazines state their preferences, generally 300 ppi, so maybe this is where that figure comes from. To get the best print results it is worth finding out the optimum for your own printer or from whomever is doing it for you.

That sounds like mixed information. 720 dpi (dots per inch) might apply to an Epson printer setting. 300 ppi (pixels per inch) applies to the size of your image file.

Our A3 Epson printer also had a 1440 dpi setting, meaning 1440 dots of ink per inch were laid down by the printer.
Best regards, John

Mea culpa, I get very confused sometimes.

It is generally better to use TIFF, but only if you did photos in that format. If your camera made JPG there is no need for converting. For high quality offset or digital printing 500 dpi is usually enough.
