I created an image that is 1920 x 1080 at 300dpi. When I upload the image with the rv software it comes out very pix-elated. Does the software reduce the image to 72dpi?

There isn't any editing done to the file to reduce the dpi of images.

When you upload to Rise Storage, the image should report the same size as the original file. Fewer dpi's would lead to a smaller file.

Most monitors don't have 300dpi screens, its possible the monitor itself is playing a role in what you're seeing.

A 300dpi image should work fine although I wouldn't recommend it. Here is one:

But as Neal stated its just adding to the file size and could cause poor performance.

If you are using photoshop I would recommend doing a file> "save for web" and choosing a jpg or png file.
That way you can ensure you have an appropriate, dpi, compression & color profile for web use.
