Parser Defaults: Default Image DPI

When you upload your PDF to the system for conversion, by default images are downsampled to 125 dots per inch (or 125DPI).

This downsampling ensures the best possible performance/speed for your digital edition, smaller DPI = smaller files = faster performance/experience.

Of course you may not be satisfied with the quality of the images at 125 DPI, so we allow you to select the default DPI at the Folder/Flipbook level. 

Step 1 - Flipbooks Screen

Select Flipbooks > Manage Flipbooks (1) - Choose the Folder you wish to Edit (2) - Click the Blue EDIT Button (3)

Step 2 Access the Advanced>Parser Defaults screen

Once in this screen you can see the Default Image DPI


The 3 options are:

  • 125: Optimized for clarity and download speed
  • 150: Better image clarity on zoom, slower to download
  • 200: Best image clarity on zoom, slowest to download (not recommended)


  • The DPI settings only apply to FUTURE uploads only.  Any existing converted Flipbooks will not inherit these settings.  Make sure to always review your Flipbook within 12 hours of upload and delete if you have any image quality concerns.  You could then increase the DPI on the Folder and reupload using the same Upload
  • DPI setting only applies to the DESKTOP platform image quality.  Mobile image quality is completely dependent on your original PDF's image quality

Use it to correct problem pages using Page Replace

If you are past the 12 hour grace window and you still have concerns with image quality on some pages, you can increase the DPI and perform page replacements for any of your pages that are exhibiting a problem.
