This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Need to set image resolution for screen captures to 300 dpi, 72 dpi, or something else

I just downloaded Snagit, version 11, because i wanted to try to change the dpi on images as shown in this tutorial for version 10...
However, the new version does not seem to offer this facility. Am I missing something?

It's not missing Franscesca it's just totally unintuitive. I have to fumble to figure out where it is even though I know it's there somewhere.

Hello Francesca,

You can still do this in Snagit 11 but we moved the DPI in the same window as the percentage so you could complete the image resize and the DPI change in the same dialog window.

If you go to to image tab and click on Resize>Resize Image you will find DPI in that dialog box. If you want to follow the steps in the video you can change the units under Print Dimensions to Percent

I hope this helps!

Let us know if you have any questions.

It's possible in Snagit 12.2 to change the DPI to 100 by default ?

We're a company and we are using Snagit to send some documents to the social security office of our country.

And it's a little bit boring to change it manually for each capture.

Thank you,
