  • Taking 300 DPI photos with Cannon Rebel

    I have a Cannon Rebel digital camera...I need to submit my photos at work in 300 dpi, so take pictures with the camera on the highest setting (Super fine) etc. However, when I download the photos and open them with Adobe Photo Shop...they are always 72 dpi.

    Is this an setting issue on the camera?

    If it is not a camera setting and is an issue with a setting in photoshop, how do I reset and is there a way to make the downloads default to 300 dpi?

    Very new to all of this so any direction would be greatly appreciated!

    dpi is a printing term. If your starting image is 8"x6" at 72dpi and you change it to 300dpi, you would get an image roughly 2"x1". Go to IMAGE-RESIZE-IMAGE RESIZE, uncheck the resample image box & change the resolution to 300. This screen will show you image size at the dpi you have entered. As long as your starting image is large enough, you should have no trouble getting 8"x10" or larger at 300 resolution. There's a very detailed post on this topic somewhere on this forum. Hope I didn't confuse you even more!
