b) After thinking a bit, I'm not convinced that the X and Y DPI should be made the same, particularly if the tool allows you to specify different DPI's for X and Y.
I know the dimensions of the physical page are 8.5"x11". The pixel dimensions of the page can be any value, (dependent upon zoom and how much is cropped etc) - Whatever is the aspect ratio of the picture, it is the correct value, since it correctly represents the page dimensions on the screen (i.e. looks proportional, not skewed or elongated). In other words, I don't think there needs to be any correlation between aspect ratio of the physical page, and the aspect ratio of the picture. I could be way off base here, and would welcome any correction.l
