Foxit PDF SDK 5.3

Is it possible to change the DPI of embedded TIFF images?

No. The DPI of the image within a PDF is static. Foxit PDF SDK does not have the feature to upscale a image DPI if the image already exist. The workaround is to upscale the image using a third party library and then add it to the PDF.

Foxit PDF SDK does have a FSCRT_ImageFile_SetProperty in which you can set the FSCRT_IMAGEPROPERTY_DPI property value, however, it only support images created inside the application by using “FSCRT_ImageFIle_Create and FSCRT_ImageFile_AddFrame and it does not support JPX, GIF and TIF formats.
