I want to increase the DPI in stata graphs to at least 300 DPI for black
and white figures and at least 600 in colour figures as requested by a
journal publisher. I tried by saving in gph format and exporting into
different formats as shown in examples below, but could not find a way
to increase the DPI. Can you please help?
Looking at the help for -graph export- under -png_options- I see width()
and height() options that work in pixels. If I remember correctly Stata
graphs default to 5"x3", so "width(3000)" might work for you.

My practice under Linux would be to export to a vector format and use
the Imagemagick "convert" utility:
convert -density 600 colourfig.pdf colourfig.png
