I want to create a BufferedImage like so:

BufferedImage myImage = new BufferedImage((int)width, (int)height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);

The difficult is that the width and height I have are in inches, so I need to convert inches to pixels. How do I determine the pixels/inch?

I guess something like this:
private static int getPixelsPerInch() {
		
    JFrame myframe = new JFrame("Test");  
    myframe.setSize(20, 20);
    myframe.setVisible(false);

    Toolkit toolkit = myframe.getToolkit();
    int dpi = 0;
    // Next line gets the number of pixels in an inch
    dpi = toolkit.getScreenResolution();

    return dpi;
        
}

Open in new window
