Convert BMP image 96dpi to TIFF 600dpi

Posted on 2009-12-15

I am working with a digital radiology program which will only output black and white images as BMP files at 96dpi. I am able to increase the image size (and therefore file size) but the resolution is fixed at 96dpi. What is a simple method for converting the image file to TIFF format at 600dpi without losing image quality.

    Accepted Solution

    Just open the image
    go to image-->size
    Note the pixel dimensions at the top (width and height)
    change the resolution to 600 dpi
    If needed, restore the pixel dimensions to what they originally were (this resizes the resolution without changing the pixel dimensions, thus no resampling, and no loss of quality)
    Save as TIFF

    Assisted Solution

    Open the image through photoshop. Along the top toolbar you should be able to click the "image" drop down menu and choose "Image Size" You could also use "Alt+ctrl+i" I've attached a picture with the area to change resolution in. Change it to your 600 dpi and restore pixel sizes if need be.
