Traditional graphics driver TIFFP300 seems made for that purpose. How do I tell ODS to use it? Or is there another way to get ODS to create a 300 dpi compressed TIFF image?
I'm using SAS 9.4 TS Level 1M1 on Windows 7

Use LISTING destination with option IMAGE_DPI=300.
Then, on ODS GRAPHICS statement, use option OUTPUTFMT=TIF.
Since you mention compression, I checked the file size.
The TIF file size written by SAS seems large (2.7MB) compared to PNG (110KB).
If I load it into Photoshop and save it with LZW compression, it is smaller (212KB).
I will check on this issue.

Thanks Sanjay, that's what I had tried. I am getting an uncompressed (i.e. very large) TIFF file with a stated resolution of 100 dpi. The total number of pixels do reflect however the requested size and resolution. For example, if I request width = 5in and an image_dpi = 300, I do get an image with 1500 pixels across. What is missing is dpi=300 in the picture properties and compression.
For now, I could manage to set the proper dpi and save with LZW compression using Irfanview.

Any news on how to compress tiff images? I understand that ods printer compresses automatically using packbits, this would be a great feature in ods listing. I'm sitting here with 160mb graphs at 1200dpi.
