Hi Glup,

Some formats don't specify the resolution. I am not sure what you mean by this. A file should be saved in the same resolution it was read. For example, a tiff file should be saved in the same resolution as when it was read.

I'm still not quite sure I understand you. The resolution (which determines the aspect ratio, if X <> Y ) is important when scanning and printing images. The only case I have seen that XDpi <> YDpi is with low res fax images. What kind of implicite transformation would you see? The only thing I can see is to resize images when they are read or scanned, if XDpi <> YDpi, and force the resolution to be equal. When saving, the original resolutions would be changed though.

Best regards,
