importing from photoshop (file grows?) - Macromedia Freehand

Hi I have been importing tiffs from photoshop and I am wondering why the dimensions change when I import it into freehand mx? It is a very-very small amount, for example if I created a 4x6 tiff in photoshop, it would come out to be 4.00001x6 in freehand? Why this extra amount?...

    Not sure, but when I go the other way, FH to PS, antialiasing will make
    image larger. Also, if you have a rectangle with a stroke around image,
    FH gives the size of rectangle which does not include extra dimension of
    the stroke.

    What is the resolution (ppi) of the file?

    FreeHand's native unit of measure is points. There are72 points per inch.
    Rounding can result in decimal fractions.

    If you use a raster image resolution that is an exact multiple of 72 (e.g.
    72, 144, 288) you should get non-fractional point measurements in FH.
