Question: I'm new to the nikon D60 and I have to take a photo of my dad so

I'm new to the nikon D60 and I have to take a photo of my dad so his picture can be in a magazine. They said the photo must be in 300dpi. Can I take a photo in 300dpi, in other words- how do I go about changing the dpi in my camera? Or is it easier to just edit it on irfanview?

    Well, this might help you. If you have Photoshop, or know someone who does, then it's a simple
    process of opening the photo in that program and saving it as 300 dpi. It would be a good idea
    to check with the publication as to their specs, and ask how they prefer the image saved.
    If you do it in Photoshop, then you have the opportunity of retouching to your satisfaction.

    Some pubs will take a JPG, or PDF. At 300 dpi, uploading the image could be time-consuming
    depending on the image's overall dimensions (inches, etc.). I'm assuming you'd be sending a
    color photo, so you might need to save it as a CMYK, and not RGB.

    So call or check with the pub first for ALL their specs.
