The resolution field in images is not uniformly supported or
understood, so the safest policy is to ignore it and stick with 72 dpi
for your images. As far as I can tell from the man page, PNG format
doesn't even support a DPI field. Just make sure that your image
contain enough pixels to look good when reduced. The page layout staff
at the journal are usually professionals and will take care of adjusting
the final image size and resolution provided that you give them enough
pixels to start with.
For example, if you are submitting something which will end up being
4x3 inches when published, then you want to give them a 4x300=3D1200 by
3x300=3D900 pixel image. Thus, use the command "ray 1200,900" and then
save the file. For submission, you'll probably need to use Photoshop or
the ImageMagick "convert" command to convert this file into something
they can handle.
