    Pict file resized on PC

    kkoodababy
      I am working on a project - authoring on a mac for distribution to a PC, and when i imported a pic file that is 800x600 72dpi it worked fine on the mac but when viewing on the PC the image was blown up. In the same project i have a pict imported at 240x180 72dpi and that one displays fine on both machines, anyone have an idea why this is happening

          It's because Macs take account of the dpi setting in a PICT file. Use
          anything else (bmp/png/tiff/jpg) instead.
