Resizing Weirdness...CS3

Resizing Weirdness...CS3

Resizing Weirdness...CS3

Not sure why this is happening...but...

I'm creating a web page in Dreamweaver.  I grab the photo I want to use for a header; & open it in Photoshop (CS3).  I resize the photo to 7" wide...@ 72ppi, which will be the perfect width for the design I have in mind.  I configure the resized photo into Dreamweaver; & it looks small...about 5-1/2" in width.  I think...OK...maybe it's something to do w/ Dreamweaver's default resolution...so I preview the page in Internet Explorer...knowing the default browser resolution is 72ppi.

It's still 5-1/2" wide in IE.

Photoshop is telling me it's 7" wide, but it's 5-1/2" wide everywhere else.

what gives ???

Thanks much,


BTW - Could this be a monitor screen resolution thing...???  That is set to 1680 X 1050.

RE: Resizing Weirdness...CS3

WEB and your display works on the number of pixels only, not on what you set the reolution. Check your display resolution.

RE: Resizing Weirdness...CS3

Set your PIXEL width.. not the document with.
