Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
I just a new camera Panasonic DMC- TZ5 and I was trying many settings, however no matter what setting I put the camera on when I upload images on to computer all of them are just 180 dpi
is there a way to increase it to 300 dpi ?
(sorry my question might be silly but I just can't figure it out )
thank you !
Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".
So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.
This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:
