Hello all,

I experimented with the resolution settings in the gimp --> scale image

The resolution does not seem to have any effect on the rendering of the image
on a computer screen. 

It has no effect on file size either.

I checked this by scaling and saving the same image in 3 different
(but no other changes):

72dpi, 300dpi, 600dpi.

When opening them again all were rendered at the same size on the screen.

I concluded that the dpi setting is only used by printers.
Is this correct?
