saving a publisher file to JPEG, how can I increase the dpi 300

I need to save a publisher file to a JPEG with a resolution of 300 dpi, but I
cannot see where I can do this. The default is 150 dpi, is it possible to
increase this?

What version Publisher?
Group the objects, right-click, save as picture, select .jpg, click the change
button...there is a 300 dpi option.

Apologies, it is 2002. There is no 'change' button.

There is no way to change the export resolution in Publisher. The default
in Publisher 2002 is actually closer to 96dpi, unless you change your
display options.

You need to use an application such as SnagIt from www.techsmith.com to
create a virtual printer driver through which you can "print" your
publication to an image.

If you are using WinXP or NT you can create a virtual JPG printer.

DO THESE INSTRUCTIONS ONE TIME

1) Download and install Ghostscript and FreePDF from
<http://freepdfxp.de/fpx732.htm>

2) Go to the Start menu and launch FreePDF (not Assistant or Join)

3) Go to Edit->Options

4) Click on Profiles and then New

5) Give it a name like "JPG at 300DPI"

6) Select "jpeg" under "Output Format" and change the DPI to 300 (t may
already say that)

7) Click on SAVE and repeat steps 4-6 creating a profile called "JPG at
600DPI" (or whatever other resolution you'd like) if you want.

8) Click on the "X" to close the window and then close FreePDF

Now...

ANY TIME YOU WANT A JPG FROM ANY WINDOWS PROGRAM...

1) Select FreePDF as your printer

2) When the dialogue come up, select "JPG at 300DPI" (or whatever) as
your PDF Profile. You can then tell it to save, e-mail, send to
desktop, or wait and combine it with the next print job. It will
create a file for each page and add "-01" "-02" etc to the end of the
filename you choose.

Eric it is far easier and a smart move to buy PagePlus10 with all the fruit and PDF all built in.
Anybody that is doing any sort of serious publishing work should invest in the incredible value and awesome features of PagePlus10

Actually, I have PP10. It is the reason that I didn't upgrade my old
Publisher.

But the original question wasn't about PDF creation. It was about how
to write a 300DPI JPEG from Publisher. Having FreePDF installed as a
printer solves that problem for Publisher and every other program. I
use it all the time to capture web-page confirmation screens when I'm
setting up a trip. It's great to have a JPG that I can drop into
Publisher or PP10. That saved me $200 recently when I went to pick up
a car at AVIS and was able to prove that they knew my plane wasn't
arriving until 11:57pm.

Even with the PDF stuff built into PP10 I find myself using FreePDF a
lot more. I'm not doing professional PDF creation, the PDF files from
FreePDF are much smaller, I can use it with ANY windows application,
and I can automatically merge different print jobs (from different
programs even). Plus, it's FREE.
