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?

Default Image Resolution

First I have to say I have never understood why some programs report resolution at 300dpi and others at 72dpi. I am sure someone smarter then me would know this answer.

But to answer your question if you look at the file in PhotoPaint is is probally rather large like 8 x 10 inches or greater. When your camera software is giving you the 300dpi it is probally only at like 4 x 5.

All the detail and resolution is there, the software just has a different way of showing it to you. Again don't know why.

They fixed that in PP X3 but there may be a fix on the Corel website where they have the updates for the products.

I'd try there.

Depending upon your point of view, you may want to see 72dpi from your camera. Myself, I like the 300 dpi.
