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.

Photoshop stores its hints about a desired print or display resolution in a proprietary profile named 8bim. Select all convert -units PixelsPerInch image -resample resultimage. I am often doing that when I am working with LaTeX, or to be exact with the command pdflatex on a recent Ubuntu-Machine.

Sumanta Pakira 2 13 Secondly, DPI should not be confused with resolution. I have clnvert my use-case in detail inside the question. Maybe someone else can use it.

This is not the case. So-to-speak I “executed” your code manually. What is important is only the number of pixels, and afterwards you have fewer di x versus x originally. The program as shown uses constants for little-endian machines, like x After trying a lot of things, I think this actually is the command that should be my friend: It has no influence upon the number of actual pixels described by the file and is completely irrelevant in this conveert.

Email Required, but never shown. It seems to work. 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. For this purpose, it is just a a few number stored within the image file.

Am I getting something completely wrong? But a different order is recommended with current IM versions so that it works for all images: ImageMagick source code and algorithms are discussed here. This is new to me. But this is no more than a ‘hint’ attribute that does not alter the underlying raster image. The command convert Image.

You can ‘print’ the very same 72×72 pixels image on a 1 inch wide imagemagico Sign up using Facebook.

How can I convert any image to dpi? Some file formats include a DPI value and others do not. So what remains is this: Under what conditions do you need to have -units first other than for vector images?

And ImageMagick’s documentation is in full agreement with me:. I’m going to guess that these are for passport photos of some sort? Does -resample use a different algorithm for scaling from -scale? This way we can help to solve the problem.

Now what is the problem here. In any case you are creating a bigger image consisting of rows of pixels which are each pixels fonvert x pixels.

The OCR states that the optimal recognition happens when the given image is at dpi. You don’t say what you expect your command to do, but I assume you want to resmple to the new dpi setting, in which case you’d need: The images will appear smaller in the resulting PDF but with high printing quality. The question clearly asked how to change this field without changing the pixel data.

What are you even talking about.

You say whenever you execute the command the image changes to 96dpi. Note, I haven’t tested the resulting pictures via pdflatex ; you probably would find it worthwhile to post a question in the tex SE.

It’s a completely abstract value that gets practical value only in the context of knowing also the absolute size of the printout or rendering on screen or monitor: This should set the DPI toas I can read everywhere in the web. Sign up using Email and Password.

Email Required, but never shown. Since ImageMagick is known to be superb and I used it for many other tasks I tried to achieve my goal with this tool. Therefor it is info that only How can I calculate how many dpi is my screen? Post as a guest Name. Then you show how the image looks after the command and it shows 12dpi.
