Changing file size

Hi all, I want to enter a photo in a contest. The file has to be JPEG or Jpg. They want it to be at least 5MB and 300 Dpi. I figured out how to change my Dpi but can't make the file bigger. My file is a little less than 2MB. As described above, they won't tk PNG which would be bigger. How to increase file size?

The first thing to try is just loading it into the photo-editing program and just resaving as a JPEG with minimal compression.

I read someone increased the file size by typing a bunch of stuff in the description under properties. I think I could do that in gimp. I don't know why they want the file to be bigger if the print size is appropriate.

It would have to be a novel to increase it by several MB!

😂 I have always dreamed of writing a novel! Two birds with one stone. Lol.
