Hi Ken,

TIFF files can have "resolution" tags (two, one for X and one for Y), so
they probably are saving the resolution(s).  It's a given that they save the
pixel dimensions, or you couldn't reconstruct the xy of the image.  They
also need one of two, either physical dimensions (as in inches)...or PPI
(Pixels Per Inch, mistakenly called DPI by some, or simply called
"resolution"), and either can be derived from the other.

OK, that makes sense.  For some reason, I took it that the comment was it
saved the resolution that it was scanned at...which it probably does when
creating the file from the scanner, but, obviously, after resizing, it
changes that.  I don't know any file format that keeps the "scanned at DPI"
information as a separate field...although one could put it in some comment
field or something I guess.

If you see something that doesn't make sense, and want to try to figure it
out, please do.
