Default Mystery With 5 Megapixel Resolution of only 72 Pixels/Inch


All of my images are shot at the highest settings on my Sony DCS F717 5 Megapixel camera, yet

at the very bottom left of the Photoshop Elements 2.0 screen where it shows Width, Height,

Channels and Resolution... it shows only 72 dpi... even though the JPEG file is over 2

megapixels! The prints look fantastic on my Canon I950 Printer so I know I'm somehow truly

getting great photo resolution...

but the confusion with this mysteriously low resolution number is driving me nuts.

Even shots I am sent from other people who have much lesser cameras or basic, small images I

download from the web show the magical 300 dpi I seek when I load them into Photoshop Elements.

What is MY dpi referring to at 72 dpi whereas other people's photos are at 300 dpi?

Thanks so much!
