DPI Settings in Corel Paint Shop Pro

How do I change the DPI of an image I create in Paint Shop Pro to 300 dpi?  All it lets me do is change ppi.

DPI is actually a misnomer. It stands for dots per inch. Output to a printing device is measured in dots per inch, because a digital printer can only print with dots. Even solid color on a digital print is made up of tiny dots.

While working on the screen, work is measured in PPI or pixels per inch. A pixel is a discrete unit of information. Each one is touching the next and together they comprise the whole bitmap of a bitmapped image.

For most purposes, the two are interchangeable. A 72 ppi image outputs a 72 dpi image.

Change the PPI and you have changed the DPI
