Upgraded 6.0 to 7.0PS but digi pics come in as 230 dpi not 72dpi now? - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

I just upgraded to Photoshop 7.0 (from 5.0, 5.5., 6.0). And now when I drag in pictures from my digi camera they are coming in as 230DPI, not 72DPI and I can't understand why. Is there a way to change it so it keeps the pictures 72DPI?...

    Photoshop is reading the resolution info written in the EXIF data by your camera. The pixel dimensions of the image are the same, that's all that's really important.

    I understand that I can change it and really it has no effect on the image itself (Yes the pixel dimensions are what's important), it's just a hassel when always working in 72dpi(web) and not being able to just drop in a image and go from there like 6.0. Anyways to make it act like 6.0?

    Daryl, is, of course, right. Resolution is one of the most misunderstood concepts. I sometimes wish I could find the guy who came up with 72 ppi as a "screen resolution" and pepetuated the myth. He or she needs a sound thrashing.

    72ppi has little more meaning for the web than anywhere else, except for
    a couple of screen resoutions and monitor sizes that happen to
    "coincide", but that's an accident of the math, not a result of it.

    Just think pixel dimensions you want, forget ppi totally when working for
    screen based images.

    >PC's started the other "standard" of 96.



    Here's a cheap-n-dirty demo: Create a new 96 x 96 pixel image. Set the resolution to anything you like (it doesn't matter what), save the file, exit PS and view it in your browser. Now print it from the browser (*not* from Photoshop). You'll get a one-inch square image. That "96" is simply a Windows instruction to the printer, which is ignored by PS. On a Mac, use the number 72 to get the same result (I think--but I don't have a Mac to double-check this).

    Bottom line: neither number has any effect on anything--other than telling you what will happen if you print an image from a browser.
