Converting kb's & mb's to DPI's
Our newspaper requires that any picture submitted be at least 200 dpi's. If I have a picture that is 800 kb, or 1 mb, how can I figure out the dpi's it contains?
Thank for any help
The size of the file doesn't matter - if you have photoshop you can go into the image and change the DPI"s - my pro lab requires images to be 300 dpi's or more for submission.

Open it in photoshop.
Go to Image/Image Size
You will see its size in pixels, inches and DPI. You can change the DPI in that box, if you want - and then save the file to print it, or send it to the paper via email.
Note: If the file was ever saved at 72DPI, just changing it here to 300DPI will not be a good move. You can always sample down, but going up is asking for it to look horrible.
I agree with the others. But I just want to point out that DPI stands for dots per inch. Therefore the question - how many dpi's is an invalid question. There is probably more to their specifications. For instance they may be saying 2x3 inches at 200 dpi. I'll bet they have a physical dimension to it somewhere.
I checked out a photo in Photoshop, and there it was! From what I've been reading, it seems that dpi's and resolution are about the same, right?
Thanks for your help..
