i have all of my image quality settings at their highest levels. but all of my images are 72dpi. this seems low. shouldn't it be more like 150 or 300 dpi?

I guess that is the setting your monitor is at which has more to do with font sizes than image quality.

The 72 dpi shown is absolutely meaningless unless you plan to print it at 42.667 X 32 inches. Until you size it for printing all that is significant is the number of pixels – it should be 3072 x 2304. If you crop to the largest 8 X 10 you will end up with 288 PPI from that image and a 13 X 19 would give you 162 PPI.

ok thanks for your comments. the problem was that resampling was enabled when i reduced the image size in photoshop. this kept the image resolution at 72 dpi. when resampling is disabled in photoshop, reducing the image size increases the dpi.
so what slipes is saying makes sense to me now.
this article explained it well: http://www.tildefrugal.net/photo/dpi.php
