Image: test1.eps

Format: EPT (Encapsulated PostScript with TIFF preview)

Class: DirectClass

Print size: 2.68667x2.86333

Units: PixelsPerInch

Colorspace: CMYK

Type: ColorSeparation

When I convert to PNG the result is equivalent to the base geometry. So what is the point of the geometry which is so different.

It appears that the Geometry is the equivalent size when using the default density of 72. Is that a correct interpretation?

3580*72/300=859
