Whenever i load a raw file in photoshop the ppi is automatically 240, how can i change that so it will automatically be 300 ppi every time i load a new raw file?

I depends on which raw converter you're using to load the file into Photoshop. In Lightroom you can change the specified PPI by going to Edit > Preferences > External Editing and changing the Resolution input box to 300 ppi. In ACR you click on the Workflow Option hyperlink (the blue link in the bottom center of the screen), and specify the 300 ppi resolution there.

That said, I don't really see the point of changing it since ppi matters only if you intend to print the image; it doesn't affect how the image is display on a screen.

thats exactly why, i intend to print so id rather have 300 ppi set then 240.

i already have some exported tif's, if i change the ppi to 300 and not resample them, will it work the same or not?
