  • I made a sample picture and it's 96dpi and 32Bit color depth. Or what do you want to know?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

     

    Based on my research, it depends on your display resolution settings. Windows 7 default scale is 96 DPI. If you want to get more information, just make a sample to check its properties.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • This depends of the tool you are using.

    So, just check that with your tool read-me file or your tool technical support.

  • The snipping tool I believe captures at 72 pixels per inch ...when I save as png and import into Fireworks at a 96 pixesl per inch I get a request to resample. However I think if you change the ppi for your display it will capture at that level... I don't have any specific documentation on it, and I don't think anything exists because it is internal to windows. 

    Hope this helps.
