I found this function that changes an image PPM (Pels Per Meter) but I was wondering if it's possible to do it via clipboard.

procedure ChangeBitmapDPI(const InputFileName: string; DPI: Integer);
PelsPerMeter: Integer;
fs: TFileStream;
if DPI = 0 then DPI := 96; // normal screen resolution, in lack of better value.
PelsPerMeter := Round(DPI / 2.54 * 100); // convert DPI to DPM (dots per inch -> dots per meter)
fs := TFileStream.Create(InputFileName, fmOpenReadWrite or fmShareDenyNone);
fs.Position := 38; // biXPelsPerMeter, 4 bytes, X-resolution, Pixels per meter
fs.WriteBuffer(PelsPerMeter, 4);
fs.Position := 42; // biYPelsPerMeter, 4 bytes, Y-resolution, Pixels per meter
fs.WriteBuffer(PelsPerMeter, 4);
