    Excuse my lack of knowledge :o

    I need to find out how to take pictures in 3000 dpi. Its to submit pics into a performance magazine.

    Is there a way to convert .jpg's or .bmp's, or do i have to use a certain digital camera?

    Could someone please please please enlighten me on how to get this done. This is late notice, but i need to do it asap!

    Thanks. =)

    i hope you mean 300 dpi....

    depending on your camera, you should be ok. take the pictures in as large of resolution as possible. from there, you can bring them into photoshop and place them in a 300 dpi document, or so i have done with my photographs making them suitable for print without stretching them too much.

    you can convert any image, given it is high enough quality to be printed at that resolution. they are obviously going to print it and cannot render a high quality print at screen res.

    illustrator?

    photoshop is fine if you want to size up an image. just do not get carried away with it or it will be pixelated and look horrible in print.

    Its ppi, not dpi. Too upsize without too much image loss try Geniune Fractals or Fred Miranda's Stair Interpolation action.

    We just ended up going to a local large-chain electronics store and buying some crazy expensive sony 5MP digi cam.
