Specify the units – I seem to remember having a problem when I omitted this option (although DPI should be the default), for example: convert. convert -units PixelsPerInch -size x xc:black -resample 96 The GIF format actually totally ignores/discards the dpi anyway, as you can see diff finds. #resample. As for your screen — measure it! it is typically (these days) 90 to dpi. Remember dpi.

Select all convert rose: I’m not entirely clear in understanding what these requirements mean with respect to a file.

For this purpose, it is just a a few number stored within the image file. Some file formats include a DPI value and others do not. I am often doing that when I am imagemagock with LaTeX, or to be exact with the command pdflatex on a recent Ubuntu-Machine.

Some other image formats JPEG? How to figure jmagemagick out: You don’t say what you expect your command to do, but I assume you want to resmple to the new imxgemagick setting, in which case you’d need:.

Since it is still not clear to some readers what I noted above, here is one more attempt It has no influence upon the number of actual pixels described by the file and is completely irrelevant in this respect. When converting a vector image of a given size in mmcm or inch into raster with a higher DPI will directly translate into a higher number of total pixels in the image.


Ok, the values there are often 72 by default. Kurt Pfeifle 9, 1 35 It is for this reason that many options such as -label is strictly a input setting only, while congert label is strictly used as a meta-data imagenagick changing operator! Whatever is noted as ‘Resolution’ or ‘Density’ inside an image file, is a metadata attribute. I would probably have expected something similar with units, in which case order between the two should not matter.

Loom 1, 2 19 It may look nicer to the human eye if your scale up algorithm is a ‘good’ one. Sign up using Facebook. How can I convert any image to dpi?

Maybe someone else can use it. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. But when I now dpo my TeX with pdflatex the image is still big and blurry. Dli is -density is being dual purposed as both a input setting for images that is created and read in, and as image meta-data modifier operator after images have been read in.

Photoshop stores its hints about a desired print or display resolution in a proprietary profile named 8bim.

Sumanta Pakira 2 13 IT isn’t a problem that the quality will deteriorate, because the image is needed just for the process of making the document not for the document itself. Yes it is a little archaic.

[SOLVED] convert from pdf and increse resolution?

I think you meant “-density”. But this is no more than a ‘hint’ attribute that does not alter the underlying raster image.


Because printers or monitors have given, fixed resolutions. Specify the units – I seem to remember having a problem when I omitted this option although DPI should be the defaultfor example: For raster images, the DPI setting is only relevant in the context of printing or dpii it.

What is important is only the number of pixels, and afterwards you have fewer – x versus x originally. Just convert DPI to metric: What are you even talking about. It is just a hint imagemagifk a printing or rendering device or an application may or may not follow when printing, rendering or displaying the image.

Timo 4, 17 Passport photo itself they will make when I visit the office. DPI is only meaningful if rendered to devices. A higher DPI will transfer more picture information into imaemagick raster format and hence preserve more details from the real original quality.
