I want to publish images obtained from Volocity but the publication requires 300 dpi, I only seem to be able to export at 72 dpi, can I change this in Volocity?

If you change the pixel density to 300 ppi, the image size will change accordingly. So if the publisher wants a smaller image with the same 'quality' as the original then changing the ppi should give you this.

It might be important to clarify the difference between the terms DPI and PPI.

DPI (Dots Per Inch) is a measure of how many droplets of ink a printer is laying down to form one inch of a print.

PPI is a description of the logical number of pixels from your original image (X pixels by Y pixels)

Most digital cameras will chose to acquire/store the data at 72 pixels per inch (ppi).

It is not possible to change this in Volocity you will need a photo-editing software to change the PPI, an example of which is Photoshop.
