Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE S414 Digital Camera
Hi, I am having a problem when downloading the photos I've taken to my computer. Whenever I download photo's. I open them in Photoshop and the dpi is 72. I have my camera set to "fine" quality and 2272x1704? I have the camera set at the highest quality unless I set it to TIFF. Why when i open the file in photoshop is it at such a low resolution? I would like for the photo to open at a resolution of 300 dpi? Is it my photoshop settings? I don't think that's it. Please let me know. Thanks, Lisa
What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case 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 to 300 for printing. You can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions". This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page: http://www.fotofinish.com/resources/centers/photo/resolution.htm
