Python – Programmatically change image resolution

dpiimagepythonresolution

I have calculated that if I want my generated image to be A4 size @ 600dpi for print purpose, it needs to be 7016x4961px @ 72dpi. So, I generate it programmatically, then test it in Photoshop and it seems to be fine so if I resize it, it gets proper size and resolution

Image size dialog in Photoshop.

What I wonder about is if it's possible to make this resizing programmatically, preferably with PIL, but not necessarily with it. I need to make it higher DPI.

Best Solution

If you have generated your image 7016 x 4961 px, it is already A4 at 600 dpi. So you don't need to resize it, you just have to set resolution information in file.

You can do it with PIL:

from PIL import Image

im = Image.open("test.png")
im.save("test-600.png", dpi=(600,600))
