How To Change the DPI Of An Image in Photoshop – Photoshop Tutorial

In this video tutorial I show you how to easily change the DPI (Dots Per Inch) of an image. The DPI of an image effects the quality of the image when it is sent to the printer.

Follow these steps:

1.) Go to image — Image Size

2.) Once you are under the Image Size panel box you will see an option that says Resolution.

3.) Change the number by Resolution and this will change the DPI

By changing the DPI it will affect the way the image prints and the clarity at which it prints for certain sizes.

Make sure you speak with the company or person who will be printing your images/projects to full understand what you need to set your DPI to.

    Here’s an article on the difference between DPI and PPI. It even has a screenshot showing that the resolution box you’re talking about is for setting PPI, not DPI.

    This tutorial is incorrect. The screen they have you use clearly says PIXELS PER INCH or PPI which is wholly different from DPI. DPI is a printer setting and you see the DPI settings when you go to print a file. But as far as setting values for the file itself, the attribute definitely is pixels per inch, or PPI. When you follow their instructions you can see that the resolution value you’re changing says PPI right on it.
