Re: DPI is meaningless in digital photography

And in reality it doesn't even affect the quality of printing. You're looking at pixels per inch, and regardless of what that setting is it isn't going to change the quality of the image. If you don't have enough pixels and you try to display the image too big on screen or too large of a print it isn't going to look very good.

Dpi indeed affects the quality of a print. For a Canon printer anything below 300 dpi reduces quality and anything below 360dpi (or 720dpi if you examine through a loupe) reduces quality of a Epson printer.
