Are you creating your designs at a 250-300ppi from the start or do you start new files set at the default 72ppi?

Photoshop is a great software for creating artwork..and fixing photo remeber its a raster based program you willnot be able to create vector image nor open them without photoshop changing to raster. So something to think about later on.
