Mind-boggling image size issue
So I'm working on a CD booklet and using the GIMP CD template, which of course defaults to the appropriate size.

However, although the canvas size does indeed display as the correct dimension, the image is huge. The magnification % window on the bottom toolbar is at 33% when the image is displayed correctly on screen.

Printing it on my home printer results in correct CD size, BUT when I sent the Kinko to Kinkos they confirmed it was indeed poster sized.

The image is also ginormous when posted online.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm attaching a screenshot which shows that while the canvas size info appears to be correct, the magnification window is at 33% while the image is the the (intended) actual size on screen.

RE: Mind-boggling image size issue
The first thing I notice you are set to 300 pixels per inch. So my question would be what does Kinkos set their printers resolution? For example; 600 ppi would make this image half the size while 100 ppi would end up being "huge" 3 times the size or 28.5 x 14 inches.
