Hey vonina,
I am providing a link a PDF file of your camera manual on the manufacturers’ website below. As far as taking pictures at 300dpi I would set your camera to the highest resolution and quality possible, and leave it at that. You can always reduce the size of an image, but it is much more difficult if not impossible to make it bigger.

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.

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.

Canon SD1300 setting for 300dpi size 2.75 x 2.975 how to set camera


It's not a camera setting.
DPI is "dots per inch". This only has meaning when the picture is output (usually printed, but also displayed on a screen). You can make two different-sized prints from the same photo file, and they will have different DPI settings even though they come from the same file.
A photo editing/printing program will let you control the DPI when you print a photo (and some will let you change the value when you save the file).

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.

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!
