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)

SOURCE: 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.

How to set 300 dpi


Dots per inch (DPI) is an output specification and is completely irrelevant as far as the camera is concerned. It's determined when you print the picture, not when you take it.

As an example, let's say you took a picture that's 2000 by 3000 pixels (6 megapixels). If you make a 4x6 print of it, you're printing at 500 dpi. If you make a 8x12 print of it, you're printing at 250 dpi, but it's still exactly the same file from the camera.

The program you use to print your pictures will let you set the DPI. Your camera has to put some number in there, and so it probably uses 72.

How do I increase DPI of .png


With what do you want to increase the DPI and fro what?
DPI is only used in printing. Papers mostly print in 72 DPI and glossy magazines, print there pictures in 300 DPI.
Once you shot a picture, with a camera, giving you a picture of 1200 x 800 pixels, you could print that picture at 300 DPI to a size of 4 x 3 inch. But even if you would print a 8 x 6, the picture could look good.
If you don't need to deliver pictures for print in magazines, it does not matter how many dpi you are using. Using .png, actually tries to compress pictures so they don't use a lot of space on the net (or on your drive. The info you lost by the compression, can't be regained, by trying to make a picture with more DPI.

I do try to explain in a few words something one graphic schools the need lots of lessons for. I tell you it can be done, making more DPI, from an existing picture, but it won't change anything to the sharpness or quality of the picture.

300 dpi image change


Yes you can. But 300 dpi is nothing. You could compare this to a question like, fits a yard in a football field.
When talking about 300 dpi, you also must know how big a picture has to be.
According to the manual, your camera can shoot pictures with 4288 by 3216 pixels. When you want to print 300 dpi that is 14 inch by 12 inch pictures. If you want to shoot pictures for smaller results like 6 inch by 4 inch or 7 inch by 5, you can chose a smaller resolution.
Don't be confused by the technical terms of 300 dpi. This is only used in the printing industry. I already printed till 4 times the resolution that was theoretical possible, and still the pictures look very good.
If you have a great picture, shot in the highest resolution, you should be able to make a print of more that 5 or 6 feet and still have a great picture

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.

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.

Change 72 dpi to 300 dpi


Your camera cannont shoot at either 72 dpi or 300 dpi. It shoots at whatever resolution you have it set for. Dpi (dots per inch) is a print specification, denoting how large (or small) your pictures are printed.

The DSC-W100's highest resolution is 3264x2448. Printed at 72 dpi, it can generate a print bigger than 40x30 inches, albeit a bit grainy. Printed at 300 dpi, you can generate 10x8 inch prints.

Again, dpi is a measure of how you print pictures. It has no bearing on how you capture images with your camera.

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.

Dpi


the camera has 4.1 Mpixels so that means each picture can have up to 4 million pixels (picture Cells) a 300 dpi (dots per inch) is very very well within it's capabilities and more

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.
