What does Dots Per Inch mean in regards to an image on the computer?


I'm working on createspace.com to do a tester print for one of my stories, and I am stuck on the cover! I have gotten it to the size and everything that it says, but it keeps telling me it needs to be 300 dots per inch, and I have no idea what that means, and it won't "approve" my cover until it does and it's driving me insane!!!!

    it was meant to be 11.95x5.79", and the pixels are 862x431.

    I don't have photoshop. I tried to find a download of it, but none I could find were free
