dpi <> ppi
dpi = the number of pixels used for representing the picture on a 
printer or a screen. This do not involved the number of pixels in your 
image, its a "notation" for the future output size
so: if we have 500 pixels and you ask for a dpi of 50, then your picture 
will showup  at 10 inches
in draw: if you need to endup with a resolution off 300 pixels you must 
gives  the also the size  500/300 = 1.666 inches
Hope it helps
