    You can change the DPI under the EXPORT header.
    You can make other choice of file format under the EXPORT header more options.

    I recall that the maximum setting allowed by TLC is 1200 DPI. Over the years I can not recall ever having to have over 300 DPI even for professional printing jobs. Are you wanting to change something other than the DPI (dots per inch resolution), or file format. Try the MORE printing options under the EXPORT options.

    I suggest you export in .png. .jpeg is a lossy type of format meaning it takes less memory BUT also sacrifices quality...particulary if you re-save the file over and over again. If you are wanting this for print, png is accepted almost everywhere now.

    since chnaging the DPI seems to make no difference to the file size, i am wondering now maybe there is a problem with my software?

    This is a case where the inherent nature and limitations of the graphics itself ....of the "elements" appearance of glass is the biggest issue. There is a slight blurriness to the letter elements that gives the element its look. I suggest that you resize the elements individually at their best size, then export as a transparent png and bring back onto a clean canvas and reconstruct and crop the canvas if necessary to fill the canvas leaving just a small margin around it and use a resizing program such a Pixresizer or Irfanview to further enlarge and print your graphics if you are using a PC.

    I agree with KD and will also note that anytime you use an element that involves a "glow" effect such as the red swoosh, you will find more difficulty with large prints and will ALWAYS have some element of blur. That is one reason printed logo's generally do not include some of the fancy effects found on digital or Internet only logos.

    Thank you KD, i redid the logo with the elements much larger, and croped the canvas, and seems to have done the trick :)
