    Bridge CS6 is resizing in raw to 240ppi

    BigSpike Community Member

      If I open a scanned film .tif image in raw, it is being resized and then that size is applied to the image file.

      Original image:

      2400ppi, 1.4 x 0.9", 3341 x 2236 px, 21.38 mb

       

      open in Camera Raw and make no changes

       

      open to Photoshop CS6 & now the image is:

      240 ppi, 13.921 x 9.317", 3341 x 2236 px, 21.38 mb

       

      Save a copy as a .tif, and the copy is:

      240 ppi, 13.921 x 9.317", 3341 x 2236 px, 21.38 mb

       

      Why is Bridge doing this?

      Can I assume that the only difference is in how the file is displayed and that there are no actual changes made to the file data?

      Why 240ppi?

      I see that I can change the ppi using the Workflow Options dialog, but where would I set the default, if I wanted to use a different number?

      Does any of it matter?
