    Hi Gene,

    You can set a DPI while exporting a TIFF image. See the screenshot:

    Yes, I understand that, but a TIFF file is not useful for websites.

    Hi everyone,

    Please note that increasing the DPI value doesn't add any pixels to the output. Your resolution is fixed. Changing the DPI setting changes not the dots, but the inches at which your image will be printed.

    I am using Luminar3.  If I edit a RAW file and then export to jpg, the rsolution of the jpg is 240x240.  Editing the original jpg version of the file results in a resolution of 350x350 in the exported file.  The file sizes of the two exported jpg are roughly the same.  Does this mean that the sharpness of the jpg obtained by editing the RAW version is worse than the jpg obtained by editing the original jpg file?

    Adelino, I wouldn't hold your breath on this one. I, and others have been asking for this for a few years now.

    I am following up as I have not seen a response.  I am not expecting that you will confirm that something has been fixed - so I am not "holding my breath" as stated by Gene Flanigan above.  I am only looking for an answer on the quality of the exported images.  I have produced two pdf exports, one by editing the RAW file of an image and another by editing the pdf file of the same image that was obtained by my camera.  When I check the properties of the two pdf files exported from Luminar 3, they are about the same size in MBytes but the pdf from exported from the RAW file is indicated as having much lower resolution.  I cannot see a difference on my monitor, but I am wondering if I will see a difference when printing the picture.  I am going to print it enlargened to 16 inches x 48 inches.   Is the pdf exported from RAW actually of much lower resolution that than the pdf exported from pdf?
