The DPI in a jpg (I assume that's the format you're using) is just a setting in the headers, but you could try this:

Ok, what is the reason of wanting to have different DPI? Pixels are just pixels regardless of the format they are stored in.

Do not worry about the DPI.  Just create the PNG image of the pixel dimensions you want to use.  Typically computer display densities are 72 or 96 DPI.  Print densities are usually 150 to 300 DPI.  If you want to put an image on the screen and also print the image, you need to use two different image files.

You might skip this step if the images are very small - just use CSS to express the display width and height.  But you probably don't want to interject a 3 MB image into a 300x200 picture window.

When it becomes time to print the image, your client can set the pixel density to a level that is suitable for the printer.

OK, let's look at it this way.  Let's say you want a card that is 3 inches wide, and you want to print it at 300DPI.  Make the image 900 pixels wide.  Set up your printer to print at 300 DPI. Et voila.
