Visual alert to low-ppi images

Recommended Posts

It would be great if there was a visual alert to images that have placed ppi below the document setup level. So - I've set my document at 300ppi (because that's the resolution the document will be output at) if an image is placed, and then scaled up so its placed ppi drops to below 300, a dot appears on it's frame like with overflowed text.

I think this would solve a lot of the criticism of resource manager being a dialog box. The main reason I want to see that in Studio is to quickly know I'm not enlarging images beyond their resolution.

By the way - it should be ppi not dpi - dpi refers to printed dots - while it's on your screen they're still pixels: pixels per inch.
