How to Raise DPI/Resolution on World Topo basemap??

Hey. I'm totally new to using ArcGIS and just downloaded desktop v. 10.6.1. I have created maps of some counties in England and Ireland for a journal publication.  I want to transfer them into ArcGIS in order to export the completed maps as 600-800 dpi images.

 

However, once I do this the icons and the World Topographic basemap quality becomes much poorer compared to what it was on ArcGIS Online.  I think the problem is that the desktop program wants to automatically lower map quality to 96 dpi.

 

Is there a way to raise the DPI/resolution of this basemap in ArcGIS desktop or alternative map I can use? Does using ArcGIS Pro improve this issue in any way?

 

Thanks.
