I uploaded my images at 72dpi.

After it was processed, I downloaded from my portfolio.

The image is still 72dpi.

So it is possible that the pic you downloaded was higher res. because Author:

1.) Resized the resolution.

2.) The camera the author usedhas the higher resolution set to 96dpi

As a note Windows uses 96dpi for display, but 72 is the actual viewable pixels on a monitor.

Resolution is used for Printing purposes.

The way I understand is, DPI is not the image resolution. Image resolution is the size of an image:

image resolution = width pixel x high pixel

DPI is the dot density of an image

You can change the DPI setting of an image without loosing image quality. But the combination of image resolution and dip setting affects the visible and size output of an image.

Most agencies probably don’t care if you upload your image with 72dpi or 300dpi, because you can always convert it do a different dpi.
