Issue Details

I would like to change the dots per inch (DPI) metadata values associated with an image. Can I do this in LabVIEW?


LabVIEW does not include native support for editing the DPI of an image. If you would like to change this property, it is recommended that you use an image-editing software.

Additional Information

This has been accomplished by NI customers in the past by editing Write BMP to include connector pane access to the 'vert res' and 'horiz res' properties that can be found in a cluster on the VI's block diagram. This is not an intended use of this function and National Instruments cannot guarantee that this will work in all versions of LabVIEW, but it is worth a try.
