wierd saving problem with DPI

Recommended Posts

TIFF is an old file format and is inferior to PNG. Your best bet is to change to the lossless PNG format.

Honestly, you shouldn't ever use TIFF if you can avoid it. It is provided in Paint.NET only as a best-faith convenience feature.

ok. i tried to save into PNG. the problem remained, the saved image is 96 DPI although i set 300 dpi in paint.net.

How did you set the DPI?

The DPI is in the Image->Resize dialog, as "Resolution".

yes. that's where i changed the DPI. i'm using paint.net 3.55 (downloaded from getpaint.net) in win 7 home premium.

on my machine, DPI setting only works while saving into BMP. 96 DPI is used while saving into PNG/TIFF.

I'm not reproducing you problem. Image opened (@72DPI) and changed to 300. Saved as *.png.


Reopened. 300DPI persists.
