Resolution Problems

I am currently using Gimp2 for Windows. I am trying to find a way to accurately determine an image's DPI using Gimp. My problem is that when I look at the resolution (in DPI) for a particular image in Photoshop, it doesn't always match what it says in Gimp. The pixel count is always the same in both programs, but the size in inches can differ dramatically. Is there a way to get these two programs to match the way they read resolution?

I also want to use Gimp to change the resolution (again in DPI) of an image. It seems to work within Gimp, but when I open the newly created image in Photoshop, the DPI has not changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

DPI stands for "Dots Per Inch" (If I remember correctly). An image does not store its size in inches; it does in pixels. The resolution of the image is unchanged; I think what you're viewing is the default DPI for each program when you resize according to inches. Unless you're printing your images, you don't need to worry about inches; just stick to pixels!

That's what I was afraid of. I was hoping that the DPI would be something consistent within the file. Thanks for your help.
