Quick Question: Will it Decrease DPI? (2 posts)

    I saw your plugin mentioned in the OC WordPress Facebook group and wondered if it can also decrease the PPI of large images uploaded from, say, a digital camera? My camera takes photos at some weird PPI (like 180) and it would my dream to save a step and just upload it straight into my blog. So, is today my day?

    Thank you for your hard work - it looks awesome, can't wait to give it a whirl.

    Well, an image that is 2000 pixels wide, is still the same 2000px regardless of whether it's PPI is 72 or 180. I'm pretty sure that PPI only comes into play when printing (or for layout in an app that understands PPI). Imsanity is only going to look at the pixels.

    I'm not sure if the PPI setting will be retained or not though - in other words if you were to open it up in Photoshop if it would still show up as 180 PPI is a good question. I'd be interested to know if the PPI metadata is preserved.
