Resized image changes after exporting

Recommended Posts

I have resized an image to 2.5 x 3.5, but no matter what I do, the image increases dramatically in size when I export, either through email, google drive, or iPhoto. Any idea what I’m doing wrong? I suspect my iPad might be overriding the parameters of the file. 

Thanks,

Jeff

I expect it is because you are thinking in ‘physical’ inches whereas your intended software programs are thinking in ‘quantity’ of pixels.

If you are looking at the document sizing option. 2.5 inches at 600 DPI is 6 times bigger than 2.5 inches at 100 DPI as far iPhoto etc is concerned. When it comes to pixels, quantity matters!

Your trick worked. I have no idea why this 3rd party app was paying attention to the dpi rather than the dpi plus sizing of the file. At any rate, your work around seems to have tricked the software. Thank you!
