I have reported this issue previously and I want to open this issue on the forum. 

The issue is with the original, starter, image DPI's changing from input to final render. As an example, I start with 1024 X 1024 300 DPI .png, tif or .jpg image, and the exported base, diffuse, material DPI is not as the input image's DPI. Examples attached.

Thanks, John
