Changing Bitmap Resolution

The DesignCentral - Bitmap tab allows you to change the resolution of a bitmap.

  1. Select the bitmap.
  2. Select the Bitmap tab in DesignCentral.
  3. Select the new resolution from the PPI fields at the bottom of the tab.

    Ensure that Proportional is checked to keep the horizontal and vertical resolutions the same.

    Changing the resolution does not change the number of pixels in the bitmap; it merely changes how many pixels fit into an inch. As the resolution of a bitmap is increased, the area covered by the bitmap will decrease, because more pixels will fit into each square inch. Decreasing the resolution will cause the bitmap to cover a larger area.
