It sounds like you need 96 dpi for some sort of graphics application? This really has nothing to do with viewing on your monitor though. DPI has more to do with how the image, pixel per pixel, is spaced during printing.

For instance... if you have an image that is 960x960.. at 96dpi you could print a 10 inch square image (wouldn't look that great at 10 inches however).

However printers ALSO manipulate the dpi. So for large images, you might need to give the printer an image that has 196dpi.

In summary, it really depends on the application. Thermal printers normally prefer 300dpi, large format printers like 196dpi (or there abouts), and our normal home inkjet will accept any dpi but you will notice if you give it 196dpi, you will get a better image when printing larger images.

How do I change the resolution on a Samsung SL605 camera?


You're looking at the dots per inch (DPI) setting. The DPI is an output specification, used when outputting the photo (either on paper or a computer screen) and is irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned. The camera fills in a value simply because it can't leave it blank.

You can take the same photo and print it out as a 4x6 and as a 8x10 and you'll get different DPI settings because the photo is covering more inches in the second case than in the first. For example, if you have a picture that's 3000 pixels in the long dimension, you'll be printing it as 500 DPI in the first case and 300 DPI in the second.

Normal size for dpi


DPI, or "font size" is variable, depending on your monitor's native resolution, The resolution you have selected for it in Windows (Desktop-->Properties[right-click]-->Display Properties-->Settings), and what program you are currently using (browsers can be "zoomed").

I would try adjusting your monitor resokution first, before changing display font size. Try this page for some help with XP: http://www.andybrain.com/qna/2008/02/09/how-to-change-the-font-size-in-windows-xp/

This page for help in Win7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/443-dpi-display-size-settings-change.html

There really is no such thing as "normal" DPI font size. Most people with decent eyes would probably use 96 as a standard.

As this handset is an old model you need to check the manual for the supported file format, and resolution support. You can check the DNS settings from your service provider.

Trying to run too many programs at the same time can cause display problems such as jittery or choppy video. If you notice erratic or reduced visual performance on your computer, try one or more of the actions described below.


1.The more programs you have open, the more system resources Windows needs. Try closing programs that you're not currently using, or reducing the window size.



2.Even if you have only a few programs running, some programs (such as video-editing programs) and features (such as high-definition television) use a lot of system resources. Running too many of these programs at the same time puts a strain on system resources and might degrade display quality or make video appear jittery or disconnected.

On some computers, very high resolution require a lot of system resources to display properly. If you notice problems at high resolutions, try lowering the resolution until the problems disappear.

I need to change my montior to 96 dpi what does it mean and how????? please help


I do not know who tell you to adjust the monitor to xx DPI. First of all, you do not adjust the resolution at the monitor, the resolution adjustment is done at the PC video setting, your monitor has native resolution of 1680 x 1050 with refresh rate set to 60Hz. DPI spec is usually for printer resolution capability.

Need to get scanned photos to between 300 and 600 dpi


What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.

Following installation of Norton 2008 all pictures viewed through internet explorer are poor quality and pixilated


Do you use ie6?
IE6 is set up to resize the images based on the Display DPI setting. You can either set the DPI to the default (Normal - 96) or remove IE6's UseHR registry key to deactivate image resizing. Here are the relevant information (from Microsoft Knowledge Base):
Image Scaling in Internet Explorer (hi-res)

How to Activate Image Scaling
Internet Explorer 6 and later automatically adjusts the scale on higher resolution systems when the DPI setting is higher than 96 DPI and the "UseHR" registry value is added to the registry. These are usually done by the manufacturers of higher resolution systems.
_registry() warn.gifWarning!!!: Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems requiring the re-installation of your operating system and possible loss of data. I do not and will not support problems that arise from you editing your own registry. Use the Registry Editor and my directions at your own risk. Be sure that you create a backup of your registry and be very sure that you know how to restore it. If you are not sure how to do both of these things then STOP here!! and read the directions.
Set the DPI
These are the steps for changing the DPI setting on your system.

    Right-click the Windows desktop to display the context menu.
    Click Properties on the context menu to display the Display Properties dialog.
    Click the Settings tab on the Display Properties dialog to display the Settings tab.
    Click the Advanced button on the Settings tab to display the monitor properties dialog.
    Select a DPI setting in the Display frame of the monitor properties dialog to change the DPI setting.
    Restart your system to allow the changes to take effect.
    Add the UseHR Registry Entry
    The UseHR value is added to the Main key under "Internet Explorer" as follows:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    Right Click in the right pane and select New>DWORD value and set its data to 00000001
This problem can also be caused by bad video drivers. Update your drivers from the manufacturers site.

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.
