I need to send an image to print.  It needs to be 300dpi.  How do I check my .png to find out the dpi?  Can I increase it?  Should I change it from RGB?

The only editor I have is GIMP.

Need to get this image off within the hour (Of course).

Thanks.

Menu: Image > Print Size, then change the resolution.

As you change the resolution, size will be automatically changed.
Pixels remain the same.

No, GIMP works only with RGB model. You can only decompose it to CMYK layers, but this is not what print studios want - they want pictures saved in CMYK model.
