I cropped a person from a pic who was some distance from the camera. I thought I better look at my image size after he was cropped out. It says 69dpi. Will I be able to print that? If not, is there a way I can get it to a larger dpi. I actually dont even know what dpi is??? I have PSE 9
See this: http://www.digicamguides.com/print/ppi-print-size.html
and, probably this one as well: http://www.design215.com/toolbox/print_guide.php
Look at the "sides" of your image. What is the length x width (in pixels)? That is how most of the tables are written. Unless you are printing a postage stamp, 69 ppi isn't going to provide an image you are happy with.
You can resize. Image > resize > image size ... usually we are reducing the size of an image. Change the ppi number down at the bottom to make it bigger. I have never had that result in anything I was happy with, but that's how you do it in Elements.
