To my knowledge, you can't set dpi from within REV. But, as dpi is not 
related to image resolution, you can perhaps actually set it in the 
binary data file.

For instance, a 300 pixel x 300 pixel image at 300 dpi would print out a 
1" square.

The same 300 x 300 image at 100 dpi prints a 3" square, though the image 
displays *exactly* the same on the pc screen. So, dpi is a function only 
for printing, and is probably a setting in the header of the image file.
