    I don't have any of those programs but on any of them do you have an option under editing or transform that says "image properties" or something like that? That's what it says under mine and you can change the size and also the dpi and that is also how you change to cmyk or whatever it's called. If you can't find that, I hope somebody else can help you.

    You can't really make a low resolution image into a high resolution image. You would be creating pixels and the conversion would just give you a blurry image. You can make a high into a low. Anything you get off of the internet will be low because it is 72 DPI, however if you can find it at a large enough pixel dimension you have something to work with. I have photoshop CS3 so I don't know how to do it in elements. This link might help explain some things, it was given to my for my digital photography class: http://www.library.cornell.edu/preservation/tutorial/intro/intro-01.html

    Good luck

    I noticed that my pictures from my camera are 72dpi. I was wondering if I could change the setting on my camera to make the dpi level higher. Since 150dpi is recommended for printing. I am using a Sony dsc w-55 7.2 mp camera. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Most cameras, if not all, create the image at 72dpi. You really need to look at the number of pixels.

    a 4x6 at 300 dpi will be 1200x1800 pixels.

    a 10 megapixel camera will give you a large image like 3000xsome other large number. That is what is important.

    I just use plain old boring Paint. Once you open your picture in Paint, go up to where it says "Resize" and click to change the pixels. 5000 horizontal (keep aspect ratio checked) fits EVERYTHING on here. Yes, it's a large size so it's annoying to upload them all, but you never have to worry about sizing those pictures again.

    With some cameras, a photo might be at 72 dpi but it's huge - something like 17 by 14 inches. In photoshop elements, all you have to do is click on image adjust - unclick resample - then put in the 300 dpi instead of the 72 in the dialog box. The photo will now be something like 6x4 at 300 dpi instead of 17x14 at 72 dpi. You won't loose any sharpness that way.
