Converting images to a .tiff with specific DPI.

exif image-magick tiff

Some publications will request an image with a specific dots-per-inch, or DPI. You can do this conversion with ImageMagick:

convert -density 600 image1.png image1.tiff

With convert image1.png to image1.tiff with 600 DPI. More about the -density flag and options from the ImageMagick docs.

Then I checked the result with exiftool; the X Resolution and Y Resolution fields should have the DPI specified in the conversion.
