I just purchased an S3 and set up to take pictures in large 6 mega and 12 mega but when bringing up in Photoshop it comes up at 72 dpi reslolution. what setting in the camera should I change to make it 300. Been trying this for days and can't find on the manal Im about to go crazy
Don't change a thing in the camera. 72 is just a conventional resolution for use on the web. In Photoshop you should see that the size of your image is enormous (in inches or cm).
What you should do as soon as you load the image into Photoshop is to go to the "Image" menu, choose "Image Size", be sure that "Resample Image" is unchecked
, then type in "300" into the "Resolution" box and hit "Enter". This will not change the image at all, but it will now interpret the pixels as at 300. You will note that the image size has now dropped considerably, so you can see what size the image will actually print at 300 dpi.
I hope this helps.
