Photoshop
To see if your file has the proper resolution for printing in Photoshop, click on Image>Image Size. View the resolution section. The resolution should be set to 300 dpi.

DO NOT ENLARGE a 72 dpi file in your 300 dpi document.

A common misconception is that you can convert a file from 72 dpi to 300 dpi. This is both true and false. If your image is 4 by 6 inches at 72 dpi, the image will actually be smaller when importing it to a 300 dpi document. This is not the same for files that are large in size at 72 dpi. For example, if your file is 28 inches by 40 inches at 72 dpi, then the file is large enough to import into a 300 dpi document.

DO NOT RESAMPLE THE RESOLUTION in Photoshop.
Another misconception is that you can up the resolution from 72 dpi to 300 dpi in Photoshop simply by changing the current dpi to 300 dpi. This is incorrect. Doing so will make your file pixelated
