Nconvert "Set dpi"

Post by Sergey » Tue Apr 27, 2004 8:20 am

I'd like to change the resolution in dpi of Jpeg files obtained by digital camera, but this option doesn't work until I deselect "Keep EXIF data" (Tools-Options-Category-Write-Jpeg). If I deselected "Keep EXIF data" in this case "Set dpi" works well, but I loose the information about Jpeg file (shooting date, aperture, etc.).
Is it possible set dpi and don't loose the file information?

Strange, DPI is not saved in EXIF metadata.
Could you send me an example?
