    Photo resolution help

      How can I find out what the resolution of scanned photos are? I looked in properties and that sort of thing, but I want a DPI number (I have to submit a photo for an essay contest, and they want at least a resolution of 300 DPI). Is 300 DPI particularly good quality? How can I ensure that the things I scan are good enough?
      Thanks!

          First off, it's PPI not DPI. [DPI is just a meaningless printer spec.]

          A scanned image would typically not have a PPI value assigned - although a particular scanner might assign it's sampling resolution. What setting was the scanner on?
