I have a Canon t3i camera -- which I love! When I download the photos from the camera to the computer, they are sized 72 dpi. I then use a software program to resize them to 300 dpi. Does anyone know if I can change the 72 dpi setting on the camera to 300 dpi? I would love to eliminate the resizing step, especially since I returned from vacation with hundreds of photos.

Thanks for any advice!

I don't have a Canon, but the interface from camera-to-camera is pretty similar. You might have something on your menu that says IMAGE or IMAGE QUALITY in your Shooting menu, or perhaps Settings menu. Make sure that is set to the highest quality setting. Also, if you open your images in PS/E and you have your default set to open docs in 300 dpi, then when you pull your photos in there, they should be automatically set to that dpi.

Hi Barb,
You don't have to resize your pictures. When you drag them into your scrapbook layout, it will make them 300dpi like the paper. :)

I use a Canon Rebel T1i and PSE10.
