Convert DPI

Question

I browsed the help files, and could not find any info on how to edit the existing dpi of a photo in Roxio Creator Pro 2010 photosuite.

 

Is it possible to take a photo that was taken at say,180 dpi and convert it to a different dpi ?

I don't think so. I tried resizing an image, but that didn't have any affect on the DPI. There is a freeware app called Irfaview that I think will do that. I don't use it, but I know several who do.

 

 

Thanks. I suspected that was the case. I messed around with resizing as well, without change. I read something in the help filesthat led me to think it may be possible, but could not find info as how to accomplish the task. Must have just thought that is what it was saying.

 

Might be a nice feature in future releases?

Why do you want to change the dpi? To use in a slide show, to print, esoteric question?

 

My son had some diving photos of (loggerhead I think?) sea turtles from a recent dive posted on flickr.

 

National Geographic contacted him, and offered him some $$$ for the rights to the shots, they requested they be formatted at 300 dpi at certain dimensions.

 

While I was able to resize the photos as requested, I could not reduce the dpi.

 

Just keep in mind you can't 'improve' from the source - only reduce

 

Right, can`t add something that isn`t there.

 

Found out lots about dpi on the web, but I`m no big fan of downloading freesource stuff, worried about piggybacks on the program.

Try Picasa (free) I don;t know if it will resize; Irfanview is also free but complicated.

 

I know i can do it in PhotoShop Elements. Do you have the Pro version of Cretaor 2010? If you do, you have LightZone; it will do it.

 

Did they tell you what format?

Yes, I`m running 2010 pro.

 

They didn`t specify any particular file format, just dimensions and dpi.

Thene use Lightzone to do the change. Sorry. I liked the free version so much that I bought the full version. I think that the free version would still allow you to do this.

I`ll look into it.

 

Let THEM do the work. You take the money.

 

That`s an idea, but I`d rather supply what they asked for, there is no guarantee they`ll buy if I send them files other than what they requested.
