My pictures are only 72 DPI. How can I change the resolution to higher quality?

The dots per inch setting (DPI) is meaningful only when printing the picture. As such, the camera simply fills in a default value of 72. You can change it in Photoshop or any other photo editing program. The resolution setting on the camera only changes the number of pixels in the picture, not how you print it.

I need to know how to increase the size of the pictures to at least 100 for publication in a magazine, the camera is a Lumix DMC-FS42

You have to set the camera for high resolution images BEFORE you take the pictures. If you try to make them bigger later (in a computer, you can't do it in camera), you will get fuzziness or blockiness.

I don't know what you mean by "100". On my Lumix, the picture resolutions are given in pixels, like 2560x1920 or 640x480. The larger numbers are the higher resolutions, and for best quality (and biggest native size), you will want the highest resolution available in your camera. You will also want to set the compression to the finest setting. These settings are on the REC settings screen, which is the first to come up when you press the menu button.

Higher resolution/quality photos will require more storage space in memory, so you might want to get another or a bigger memory card.

In uploading to a website, so that pictures could be printed, a comment states low resolution and the pictures may be blurry when printed. Is there any setting on the camera that I can change that would...

I dont know what resolution your camera is, but make sure you have it set at the highest it can go. The higher the resolution the better quality the picture. I had a 12mp camera but you could set it as low as 4mp which is ok for snaps but if you are uploading or printing then you need to set your camera to a higher resolution if you can. Read your instruction book it should tell you how to configure your settings there. If it is an old camera that cant be changed then maybe its time to invest in a higher mp camera perhaps 8mp 10mp or even 12mp

How can I take high resolution photos on my Panasonic Lumix DMC FS15. I sent some photos to Costco to have them made into posters and was told that I needed a higher resolution photo to make a good clear...

All cameras have multiple settings for picture quality. For example if you email a lot of pictures select a lower resolution. If you have "poster" size prints made select the highest resolution you camera will do.
Go into your cameras set up and select the highest resolution you have. should be about 12MP.
You have a high quality print with that.

Can not change the number of images that can be taken

Ok, this is a very easy procedure..
While in picture taking mode, press the set button and it will activate the controls to choose the image resolution. If you select a higher image size or number, it will improve your quality of picture as the number of the resolution you choose gets higher. Simply use the side scroll and the up/down scroll on the back... that will do it for you!

Taking Picture Problems HELP!!! PLEASE!!!

It could be the picture quality you are taking is set to high quality and the manual gives the higher figure in lower quality pictures.

You can go to menu/ settings / quality and change these to a lower resolution.

Hope this helps.

Changing the resolution on my camera before i go to photoshop

using the RAW setting will give a higher quality photo, the other formats compress to jpeg causing you to loose some of the original photo information. the ZoomBrowser EX program allows you to edit the RAW image, I recommend getting the large prints done at Kinkos or some place like that. I've gotten poster size prints done that look very clear. Use a tripod to combat camera shake, it is very apperent at that size of print. Also a low ISO to help reduce noise.
