Question about Olympus Camedia D-425 / C-170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How do I increase the dpi setting on my Olympus D-425?

The default setting seems to be 72 dpi, but I would like the image to be 200 dpi. I haven't been able to find anything that tells me if I can change this setting and, if so, how to do it.

Unfortunately most of the Olympus cameras shoot at 72 dpi by default - a suggestion is to shoot at the highest quality setting and then use Adobe Photoshop to modify to 200 dpi if that's what you need.

Hi i have an Olypmus UZ800 and it takes only 72 dpi photos, how can i change to 300 dpi, i must insist that i use FINE picture quality


Please don't confuse the input resolution with the print resolution. DPI controls how many dots per inch are printed. It has nothing to do with how the picture is taken, that's controlled by the input resolution (also called image size). The image quality has nothing to do with either, it controls how much the image is compressed before being stored.

Input resolution (image size) is controlled by the "IMAGE SIZE" entry in the Shooting menu. 14 megapixels is the best this camera can do.

Image quality is controlled by the "COMPRESSION" entry in the Shooting menu. FINE is the best quality, least compression.

The DPI is controlled by whatever program you're using to print your picture. Were you to print a 14-megapixel picture at 72 DPI, you would get a picture that's almost 5 feet by 4 feet. Were you to print the same picture at 300 DPI, you would get a picture that's about 14 inches by 11 inches. If you wanted to print a 6 inch by 4 inch picture, you would have to print at about 700 DPI.

Images taken by Sony DSC-W200 camera are only 72 DPI.


Pictures on a digital storage don't have any DPI. You get DPI when feeding the pictures into an output device, that is, you can put a ruler on it and measure it. Unfortunately JPG does have DPI tags. I don't know, what these tags try to tell us. With tag editors any value can be put into these tags without any visible effect. Non-displayed pictures are measured in Pixels (width x height).

Want Increase resolution from 72dpi to 200 dpi


increase in dpi will not increase the resolution. dpi = dots per inch for example you have a res of 1024x768 at 72dpi you get a printed image of 14.2x10.6 inch at 300dpi you get a printed image of 3.4x2.5 inch
only thing possible is to interpolate the image. but thats **** in my opinion.

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I...


A couple of things - I don't think you mean 500 megapixels (that is a lot!) but I assume you mean you expected a high resolution image. You may have it! The dpi setting is largely irrelevant (for photographers) as it simply relates number of pixels to a (notional) print size. Thus an image that is 3000 pixels wide (say) would print out to 10 inches at 300 dpi (3000/300) or 40 inches (approx) at 72 dpi (3000/72). the image has the same information /resolution - it's just "spread" further on the larger print. You can easily change the nominal dpi in e.g. Photshop Elements but it won't affect your image quality.
If however you are getting low resolution images when setting the camera differently that's something different. I would need extra info to help there but pssibly check if the camera was set to RAW and maybe you were looking at the (small) JPEG usually saved with it?

Sony H1 takes photos at 72 dpi by default. But the picture quality will be good. if you want to convert it to 300dpi open the picture in adobe Photoshop and select image size and change resolution to 300 dpi. but the file size will be very high to up load. if you want to reduce the file size select the image size in adobe photoshop and reduce it according to your requirement. if my solution proves good please rate it.

How do I increase the dpi on TZ5


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:

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 72 dpi problem


Sounds like Photoshop's setting, or default setting, is to import picture at its maximum size. If you RESIZE pic on Photoshop, it shoud automatically increase DPI while reducing physical size.

The other thing to be aware, TZ3 defaults to a certain jpg compression. You can minimize compression of data with settings options on TZ3, but I doubt this has anything to do with your PhotoShop issue.

Also, in SIMPLE mode you can select a physical size for photo, even after pic is taken(resize), on camera.

Hopes this helps.

CHANGE DPI


Yes, every picture has a resolution of 72 ppi. This can be changed later in an image editing program on the computer.

Confused about Resolution Sony DSC-T7


2.2 MB is the size of the file on your hard disk. Being a .jpg, it is a compressed file. The file size does not reflect the size of the image stored inside the .jpg. Yes, the size sounds about right. It will increase or decrease depending on how much detail there is in the picture. If, for instance, your picture is made up of nothing but uninterrupted blue sky, the disk file will be quite small - as the .jpg does not need to store much information (the more repetitive information, the smaller the file). On the other hand, if your photo consists entirely of nothing but blades of grass, the disk file will be comparatively large. When you see "DPI", that refers to print resolution. So, since you're not printing, but rather, viewing onscreen, Photoshop "assumes" a convenient "screen resolution", as though you printed on the screen (don't ask!). If you look at the other settings, you'll note that Photoshop also thinks your photo is 36" wide!!! You adjust the DPI (or photoshop will) when you print. Till then, it doesn't mean much. Let me give you an idea of your image's possible DPIs. Assume you really want to print a 36" photo: 2592/36" = 72 DPI If you make the picture 12" wide: 2592/12" = 216DPI At 10": 2592/10" = 259.2 DPI At 8" 2592/8" = 324 DPI How do you get my photos above 200 DPI? By printing the picture small enough, less than 12.96" on the wider side. See calculations above. The resolution at which you shot the image (2592X1944), will not cause blurriness. As for the cause? There could be any number. Was the subject moving? Were you? Did you shake the camera while shooting? Is your shutter speed too slow? Should you have been using flash? Is the camera autofocusing correctly? Are you waiting for the autofocus to lock before pushing the shutter the rest of the way? Etc. Hope this helps somewhat...

DPI


Have you looked at the number of inches that 72 dpi is spread out over? 72 dpi is the standard default setting for any digital camera. What matters is the size that you actually print it at.
