72 dpi instead of 300dpi


You do this in your editor. In photoshop you go Image -> Image Size and you'll see resolution set at 300 as default just change the 300 to 72.

How can i change 40 dpi to 300 dpi for a magazine


If you didn't shoot them at 300 dpi you cannot convert them to such in your camera. You can upscale them in a software program like Photoshop or the free GIMP program but the quality will suffer. My suggestion would be if possible, to re-shoot the images after changing your camera settings to 300dpi or better.

What is dpi on Kodak EasyShare M1093IS


The DPI (dots per inch) number only has meaning when printing the picture. It's meaningless to a camera.
The M1093IS takes photos that are 3672 x 2748 pixels at its best resolution. If you make a 4x6 print of one, you'll be getting more than 600dpi. If you make a 8x10 print of the same picture, you'll only be getting about 300dpi. Yet they're made from the same image file.
If you must change the image file itself, open it in just about any photo editor, change the DPI field, then save the file. Make sure you do this to a copy, not the original.

Can i change the compression and ratio on my canon powershot a570 is to shoot in 300 dpi?


Not really, since "300 dpi" is a print resolution specification. The camera takes pictures at whatever resolution you have set (0.3MP to 7.1MP on the A570).

If you print a 0.3MP photo at 300dpi, you'll get a picture 1.6 inches by 2.1 inches (smaller than a business card). If you print a 7.1MP photo at 300dpi, you'll get a picture about 8 inches by 10 inches. You can also get an 8x10 from the 0.3MP if you print at 60dpi, but the result will be rather grainy.

Again, "300 dpi" has no meaning to the camera.

How do I take a picture at 300dpi


The DPI are not a user allowed settings. Normally DPIs are factory defined.
You can change the DPI using software. Normally the image administration software and advanced softwares can allow you to change it.

Remember an important issue: DPIs are a printing matter not an image quality matter. Yo can set an image to 300 DPI and the same to 72 DPI and you will see no difference between both images.

A good camera and your skills will allow you to take high quality images.

Creating a 300 dpi x 300 dpi file


You need to be able to change the DPI setting in the image file. This can be done in most complete photo editors, though they tend to name the procedure in different ways. In Corel Photo-Paint, you would look for "Resample Image". In the open source photo editor Gimp, look for "Scale" under "Image".

In all such procedures, what you want is to set both the vertical and horizontal DPI values to 300, apply them, then save the image. Please do save it to a different filename, since you lose some quality of JPEG images every time they are saved.

Hey TiffanyJane,
There is no way to change the dpi on a digital camera. What you need to do is set the camera to its highest resolution which is 3264x2448 pixels, and this is referred to as large in your camera. Large resolution should provide prints of high quality up to 11.7x16.5 inches, and should also be able to print to 300dpi. Instructions on how to set your camera to this setting are on page 69 of your camera manual. If you no longer have your manual I have provided a link below to a PDF download of it. I hope this helps!

Setting dpi on canon ixus 800 IS


You can download manuals here.

As dpi is generally a printing specification, the size you set on your camera depends on what size prints you want to make. If you want to print 4" x 6" prints at 300 dpi, you can set the size to M2. If you want to print 5" x 7" prints at 300 dpi, set the size to M1. Anything larger, set the size to L. With L selected, an 8" x 10" will still be about 300 dpi, but any larger print will be at less than 300 dpi.

300 dpi


Shooting pictures in Fine quality will give you atleast 300 DPI resolution. Check your camera setup menu to see what quality you're shooting in, and adjust as necessary.
If you need to print 300dpi, this is done in whatever program you're using to output. In Photoshop, this is done by going to image>image size and changing Resolution to 300 (or whatever other resolution you want)
