I've just upgraded to CC. I'm used to working for print at 300dpi but somehow all of my files are showing as pixels per inch so I'm having sizing problems. If I display an image at 'print size' it's way under what it should be.
Any information out there on how I can have the default as working in dpi please?
Must be something in the preferences somewhere?

Cheers!

Your document dpi is whatever you set it to be when creating the document, or in ImageSize. Photoshop hasn't changed anything in that area.

Hi Chris, Thanks for the reply.

When I create a document I'm only getting the option to use pixels/inch or pixels/centimetre. There's no obvious dpi option?

pixels / inch === dots / inch (but pixels / inch is more accurate)
