          You can't, except print resolution in the print module, and that relates to printer resolution rather than image resolution. Digital images don't really have a resolution. They are simply images that are defined by pixel dimensions. And regardless of what the resolution setting is, the image still has the same number of pixels. Changing that setting doesn't do anything to the image. It's main value is to enable a program such as Photoshop to calculate how large the image will be at any resolution setting.


          If you are talking about concerns with printing then you need to understand how to calculate how big the image will print. For instance, consider that you have an image that is 4000 x 6000 pixels and you want a 300 PPI print. You would divide 4000 by 300 & 6000 by 300, and that would indicate how large of a print you could do at that resolution.
