Resolution is a hint for the real world print size and size is the
pixels you really have (assuming you are displaying width and height
in pixel units). So both have the same number of pixels, but one is
declared to be printed as 0.5 inch side square and the other as
0.25. Some people get really picky about the resolution being correct
so they know the print size without doing maths, and others think that
changing the number will do magic and give you a non pixelated print.
