Greetings Everyone,

I’ve copied templates from this link: <http://www.earthmandalas.com/how/templates.html> and selected the ‘Click here for the Inkjet’ size templates. I saved them to my hard drive, then brought them into Photoshop 7, and changed the Image size to 13 x 13, 300 ppi. Selected ‘Save’, keeping them .GIF files, and closed them. When I bring the templates back into Photoshop to use, I’ve checked the Image size, and it is changed to 54.167 x 54.167, 72 ppi. – every time ! ! Why is that happening?

If I change the size and save them as a .PSD file, the Image size will not change after I save it (I can bring it back into Photoshop, and it remains 13 x 13, 300 ppi).

I’m also wondering if this mysterious change has messed up any of the art I’ve created with templates I thought I’d changed to 300 ppi. When I looked at the art full-size, it looks good. I did change one finished image from 54 x 54, 72 ppi to 13 x 13, 300 ppi, and it still looked the same. Thoughts?

Thanks,

Stardancer

Would appreciate all feedback.

Because GIF doesn’t store a resolution – just the number of pixels. And it always imports at 72dpi (screen resolution).

The number of pixels don’t change.

Thanks, Chris, for solving that mystery. I thought I was losing my mind. I’ve now saved them as .PSD files, and the ‘Image’ values remain to what I’ve changed them.

Appreciate your feedback and assistance.

Best,
