You can easily, but not through "save for web and devices" (Which strips it back to 72).

Just 'save as jpg' ;) (assume it's already at 300DPI?)

Of course JPG is a lossy format, so ideally you'd save it as a TIF if you want to maintain 100% quality with no loss - I guess it depends on what you need it for?

ok silly me! i didn't think to just save as :)
yes i know it's lossy, but it's for a printer and they wanted a jpg at 300dpi.
i offered them a tiff and they didn't want it.

thanks for your quick response.
