    on the canon site it claims that -

    A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with razor-sharp detail, for photo quality prints up to poster size.

    how can this be possible with a maximum resolution of 180DPI? (i have searched without success for info about how to increase this and found nothing except other users asking the same thing and getting no answers)

The dpi-value of a camera is meaningless. It is a fictitious number.

A photo has no dpi, only pixels.
Only prints has a dpi/ppi.

Are you sure that the menu set-up in the camera is set to give a large enough amout of resolution when taking the pictures?

Did you check the software you are using to make sure that there is no mode set to make picture compression?

How to set for 300 dpi


The dpi is not really a camera setting. The camera should usually be set to the highest resolution possible (4000x3000). This capture size would give a print size of approx 13"x10" at 300dpi. That would be considered a high resolution print. If you were printing at "normal" print resolution you could double that print size.

You didn't say what camera you have. Most cameras do not support that high of a DPI except for DSLR cameras.

How do I change the dpi of this camera?


The digital cameras capture images with number of pixels that that image sensor allows. They usually dont have DPI adjustment. However you can adjust capture resolution from 5 Mega Pixel to 1.1 Mega Pixel. Please refer to Page 24 and 25 on the following Owners Manual for this camera.

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.

Photo resolution


Sony H1 takes photos at 72 dpi by default. But the picture quality will be good. if you want to convert it to 300dpi open the picture in adobe Photoshop and select image size and change resolution to 300 dpi. but the file size will be very high to up load. if you want to reduce the file size select the image size in adobe photoshop and reduce it according to your requirement. if my solution proves good please rate it. Regards.

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 do I increase the dpi on TZ5


Hi - When talking about resolution in digital photography there are two main meanings.
One is the "pixel count resolution" and the other "embedded resolution". So for example your camera could record 2272*1704 as the actual pixel count resolution and set 72 as the embedded resolution that tells other software (for example photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it in your software to 300 for printing. In Photoshop you can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions".

So for your camera the embedded resolution is 180 which you can only change in your PC software.

This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page:

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.

DPI resolution


menu- camera set up- picture quality- try to locate picture size using menu button switch. RAW file is the best but it eats too much memory.
