Ensuring your images are 300dpi for journal article submissions

Save yourself a bit of time in the long run with this simple regedit hack, which can be done on University computers without admin permissions being required:

Change the export resolution of images in Powerpoint

This means any diagrams, flowcharts etc you make in Powerpoint can be saved as an image at 300dpi right from the get-go, ready for upload when submitting to a journal. This stops them coming back to haunt you during the copyediting process when you have 3 different people emailing you asking for 300dpi versions of all your figures!
