Take your pick, or mix and match.

by seanferd In reply to I can tell

it is a question no one else can answer. Theoretically, at least, I could provide instructions for reducing resolution. I cannot, however, begin to speculate as to the suitability for use some unknown graphical representation would have at any given resolution for uses unknown.

Although, I suspect, 10 dpi is right out.
