( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You are confused. An image contains pixels. Those pixels only become dpi when you print them. GD, has nothing whatsoever to do with printing.

The exact, bit for bit, binary identical, same image can be printed at 72 dpi or 300 dpi or 1 dot per metre if you want it really big.

A 2550 x 3300 printed at 72 dpi will be 35.416" x 45.833". The same image printed at 300dpi will be 8.5" x 10". The content of the image file doesn't change at all.

What is telling you that the images produced using GD are "72dpi"?

Looking again, I see you are outputting to jpg format. That is the wrong thing to do if you want to retain quality.

For more information about the confusion that Photoshop creates, read:http://proshooter.com/article_whatisa300dpiJPeg.htm (You'll just have to forgive the photographer the hideous layout:) the information is good.)

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
