Hi Robert,

I target a size at a particular PPI and that gives me, say, for a 4x6 at
100, so 400 x 600 pixels.

Right, but why does it matter how I got the number of pixels?  If I simply
take my 4000 x 6000 image, and resize it in PS to 4 x 6, I still get a 4000
x 6000 image...  Something besides the image size has to change, and would
be the resolution.
