F-spot exports images to GIMP with wrong PPI
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu

Status in “f-spot” package in Ubuntu: Invalid

Bug description:
Binary package hint: f-spot

If I export from F-spot to a directory the PPI settings of the original image (like 300 ppi) are preserved. Also when I open an image with GIMP I get the original PPI. 

* But when I open an image from F-Spot in GIMP, GIMP chooses the settings for "new images". So that for instance an 300 ppi images gets reduced to 72 ppi!

This behaviour is dangerous for further editing process. The user will assume that he is editing the original settings.

I don't know which programs fault it is as both can import and export correctly when done differently.

This bug happens to me every time.
