Newbie Question on Rescaling: Maintaining Rescale

    When I rescale (without resampling) and create a .TIF file, the rescale is
    maintained (for instance 4"x6") when I use PS to print the photo. However,
    when I rescale and create a .JPG, the rescale is not maintained (for example
    it's 36"x24"!!!!!!) and I have to place a check in PS to "Scale to Fit
    Media" when printing. Why does this occur and is there a default setting in
    PS that somehow got changed? (I realize that just resizing the photo without
    resampling doesn't change the photo data...just changes the size & increases
    the resolution (in my cases I normally print on 4"x6"). Thanks in advance
    for the answer to my question.

    Probably what happens is when you save as a jpeg the default value for
    resolution is changed to 72 ppi. As you note this "doesn't change the
    photo data" and is irrelevant until you go to print. You can change
    this to anything you like for printing with Image > Image Size,
    unchecking 'resample'.
