    Hello,

    At times i have noticed in the links panel that instead of displaying Actual PPI: 300 and Efffective PPI: 300 or depending on size.

    Sometimes however the Effective PPI is displayed as 185×186 or other # x #

    What has happened is there a difference? appreciate a light on this

    Thank you

    Niklas

    If you scale an image, it changes the resolution. If an image is scaled disproportionally (such as 98% horizontal and 101% vertical) then you’ll get different effective PPI resolutions.

    I get it, the user has not resized it proportionally thus the ### x ###?

    Thank you David.
