Default Image resolution problem

Hi, I'm new here.

I was editing some digital photos the other day and found my 300 dpi high res pics revert to 72 dpi when opened in Photopaint 9. Why is this?

My 6.2 megapixel HP digital camera is set to the highest resolution. It creates 300 dpi ".jpg" files.

When I transfer photos to the computer and right click on properties, it says they are 300 dpi.

When I open HP's Photo managing program and highlight the same pictures and click on "information" it too says they are 300 dpi.

When I open the same file in Photopaint 9 and select resample, it says it is only 72 dpi.

When I zoom in and count the pixels there is only 72 per inch.

Any ideas what's going on here?
