Use this to change the value of the dots per inch specification. This will change how different devices or programs render the image. (This is different from "resizing" or scaling an image.)

Example: If you capture something from a typical computer screen with a resolution of about 96 dpi, then set the resolution for that image to 200 dpi, your printer will print this image about half the original size. Why? The dots are now set to be resolved at a higher count per inch, so the printer driver closes the space between the dots to match the DPI value within the image.

Horizontal Resolution

Define the horizontal resolution of your captures in Dots Per Inch. Most SVGA screens are 96 DPI. If you find yourself repeatedly setting this value upward (or downward) after captures to fit the destination device or usage, change the default to the value you most commonly require.

Vertical Resolution

Define the vertical resolution of your captures in Dots Per Inch. Most SVGA screens are 96 DPI. If you find yourself repeatedly setting this value upward (or downward) after captures to fit the destination device or usage, change the default to the value you most commonly require.
