      You’ll need to change the resolution, and you’ll also need to re-size the image if you want it to stay the same size.

      You should be able just to print it at 1:1 resolution, but the image will come out 1/3 the size you expect.

      You’ll need an image editor to resize it.

        if you resample the image when resizing, and set the DPI.

        If you are looking for a tool in particular, many image manipulation programs do this. Try Irfanview or The Gimp. The Gimp is a much larger and complex application – think Photoshop. Irfanview is smaller and will do all the common image editing/viewing tasks, including what you want.
