Think about printable media (not just images for the screen). There are
many printers that can print at different densities in the horizontal
and vertical direction (e.g. 720 x 1440 dpi or 1440 x 2880) as there
highest dot density. So if you were trying to work precisly, pixel-for-
pixel, you might want to set the resolutions appropriately.
