How can I get screen shots that are 300 dpi?


Answer by  trigonometry (668)

Unless you have a special screen with such a high resolution, you won't be able to do this directly. Instead, take the screenshot in the normal way. Then import it into an image processing application, e.g. the freely available Gimp. These tools allow you to modify the screenshot if necessary and export it with a given dpi setting

You can get screen shots by using some application program like adobe photoshop, corelpaint and other application which regards to photo editing. In your computer you can also use the print screen to capture image screen and paste it into adobe photoshop for example and set the actual size or resolution into 300 dpi select ok and save.

Since you will not be able to find a screen with such a pixel density you can only scale up your screenshot. Some programs can use more sophisticated algorithms for doing so. There is also the possibility that you misunderstood dpi.

with a screen that's at 300 DPI :). Most screens have considerably less dots per inch. what you will need to do is take a picture at the native resolution and use an image editor (try GIMP for a good free one) to adjust the dots per inch setting. good luck

A screen shot will be captured in the resolution of your screen, so you need to adjust the quality of image on the screen to give you 300dpi.
