Opening a 300dpi JPG changes to 72ppi?
I make 300dpi JPG-s from CorelDraw. After export from CorelDraw I check the resolution once again in the Win Resource Management from file's properties and it's 300dpi. When I open this JPG in GIMP and check the Properties from PIcture> (or Image>) Properties, the resolution is 72x72PPI. Why? I have done this 10 times to check it.

I have configured in GIMP program properties that a new document will be 300x300DPI. But this doesn't help.

If I open a photograph taken with 300dpi cellphone camera in Gimp, the resolution seems to be 300DPI.

Somehow my 300 DPI CorelDRaw Graphics are changed to 72PPI. Frustrating!
