I'm using the save Image function, with the options you can set the width and hight (pixels) but not the resolution, this always stays 96 DPI.
does anyone know a solution to save screenshots from modeling with a higher resolution?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As far as I know about images, the dpi is not useful. For a given image, the most important is the number of pixels. Then it depends on which size of paper you print A4, ..., A0.
As an example, a 1200 dpi, 120x120 pixel image is much less precise than a 96 dpi, 9600x9600 pixel one.
You can use the high resolution printing:
View > ... More > Properties/Viewport
In the dialog, select HR Print.
Hi Gerard
thanks for the response, i tried this, but when you check the resolution of the image it also is 96 dpi. the number of pixels is higher, that is true, but resolution is the same

It all depends on the final size quality you need.
Use the formula and examples below. FYI creating an image larger than 300 DPI can be quite time consuming depending on CPU.

DPI X (W)idth = Pixels(W)
DPI X (H)eight = Pixels(H)
96 DPI - 4.00 X 4.00 Print Size = 384 Pixels(W) X 384 Pixels(H)
96 DPIT - 10.00 X 8.00 Print Size = 960 X 768
120 DPI - 4.00 X 4.00 = 480 X 480
120 DPI - 10.00 X 8.00 = 1200 X 960
300 DPI - 4.00 X 4.00 = 1200 X 1200
300 DPI - 10.00 X 8.00 = 3000 X 2400
600 DPI - 4.00 X 4.00 = 2400 X 2400
600 DPI - 10.00 X 8.00 = 6000 X 4800
1200 DPI - 4.00 X 4.00 = 4800 X 4800
1200 DPI - 10.00 X 8.00 = 12000 X 9600
