    OK, when I start a new image in fireworks or photoshop I set the size to, width 6.5 Inches height 4 Inches and the resolution to 300 Pixels/Inches. Then I go on and design my add. when I am finish I print off a copy and sure enough it comes out the exact size 6.5 inches by 4 Inches and perfect quality!! Now I think I am finished so I export the image to a gif and I will open the gif up and print it one more time to be sure. This time it comes out huge, pages upon pages its that big.

    What am I doing wrong, Please help am at my wits end!!!!!

    .Gifs are for the web, try saving it as an .eps instead.

    When you re-open the .gif, what does it say under the image properties? ... resolution/dimensions etc.

    I just did a test (minus the printing), and the same thing happens to me. .Gifs cannot store resolution information, it's unlocking those 300dpi increasing the actual document size as it's forced down to a web ready 72dpi.

    Use another file format. .jpeg, .psd, Fireworks .png, .eps, .pdf etc.

    Yeah, that always happens to me, but it prints out fine - it's just that most optimised formats just open in 72 dpi, mainly because they're not really designed for print...
