    Opening File: Why is Pixel Width affected by Resolution?

    kevinkamin

      Simple code to open an EPS file and wanting to set its width to 500px. If I set the resolution to 72 it works fine. If I leave out the resolution line is ends up being about 7x as big (approx. 3500px). If I set the resolution to 300, the image is about 4x as big. In my mind resolution shouldn't affect the size of the image, because I'm working in absolute pixels and not inches. Any insight would be appreciated.

       

       

      app.preferences.rulerUnits = Units.PIXELS

      var fileRef = File(app.path+"/Presets/Scripts/BBY_FPO_Watermark.eps")

      var epsOpts = new EPSOpenOptions();

      epsOpts.antiAlias = true

      epsOpts.constrainProportions=true

      epsOpts.resolution=72   // if I omit this line or change this to a higher number the image gets much bigger than the 500px I specified below

      epsOpts.width=500

      app.open( fileRef, epsOpts )
