Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Hi there, I am in an incredible jam. I just bought this camera and I did two photoshoots with it. Amazingly enough with ordinary camera's non -slr's I have no problem downloading and editing in photoshop. My problem is I can't download to my computer and open the image in photoshop without the photo being in 72dpi. Can I adjust it in photoshop to 300 will it be pixelated?
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 Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
