Image Grid size information has me confused

Post by jgold723 » 11 Jun 2019, 14:33

I'm confused by the size specifications that appear under images displayed by the Image Grid utility -- the sizing numbers don't seem to add up (literally). For example, there's this information that appears under an image:

IC37 4.tif
DPI:200.0, Dim:540.0 x 360.0
TIF, CMYK

It's the second line that has me confused. It's saying the image is 200 DPI, 540 dots wide x 360 dots high (at least that's what I think it says). So the image should be slightly larger than 2" wide at 100%.... right?

However, when I place it on the page, it's actually slightly larger than 7" wide.

Why is this?
