          Digital images do not have a resolution. They are simply images with pixel dimensions. For example, with my 24 megapixel camera the images are 6000 x 4000 pixels. The only value a resolution setting has is to indicate or enable you to calculate how large the image will be at any given resolution setting.  For example, if I wanted a  300 PPI setting the calculations would look like this:

          6000 pixels / 300 PPI = 20 inches

          4000 pixels /300 PPI = 13.333 inches

          So I could have an image that is 13 x 20" at 300 PPI.  I could change the PPI setting to  200 and the image would be 20 x 30". But the number of pixels in the image won't change. The image itself remains exactly the same.
