Individual Chapters (Medium resolution):
Chapters 1-5 in Low-print Resolution:
- Low (screen) resolution -- refers to a 72dpi version only suitable
for viewing on screen at 100% zoom or smaller. At present I have no intention of uploading
the screen quality dissertation since the
size savings would be less than 50% over low-print
resolution, while the drawbacks are large.
- Low-print resolution -- refers to an acceptable quality for
printing (150 to 200dpi)
and high enough quality for study on screen with
- Medium resolution -- 300 dpi on most images (600dpi on some B&W). Suitable for printing.
Many of my own dissertation prints are of this quality.
- High resolution -- 600 dpi on some images (300 on most; 1200 on some B&W) with no
jpeg artifacts. Suitable for press runs, but only noticeable on high
quality paper with a high quality printer. I have a copy at this
resolution, but doubt I will put it on-line since it is over 400MB.
