Actual Size Not working?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Paint.Net and am having a problem with image sizing.

Sometimes when I open an image the ruler shows "large inches", where 1 inch on the ruler is over 2 inches. The program is set to display "Actual Size", and shows the display at 100%. If I resize an image to 2" across, save it and open it with another program, it does indeed appear to be 4" across.

Other times the program works as expected and I get 1 inch inches.

Is there some setting that I don't know about?

Press [Ctrl]+[R] (Image > Resize) and check the DPI of each image (the Resolution: box). I'll bet that one is 72 / 96 Pixels per Inch and the other is 200+ Pixels per Inch.
