How to use the script

The interface is a single value to enter, the minimum pixels per inch, which defaults to 300. Enter any other value desired. Then click the OK button to begin.

The script examines each placed graphic in the document. For images, if the effective PPI is less than the minimum, the script calls Photoshop to upscale the image. Photoshop uses the resampling option “Preserve Details 2.0,” which does an amazing job of increasing resolution. Once all images are examined and upscaled as needed, the user is notified.
