 I am working on an image , and when I ask it to show print size , the rulers scale is incorrect. I have a 21" monitor , and I was wondering if that is part of the problem ... ?
   My inches are coming out to be about 1 3/8 " -- and it is driving me crazy . I want to be able to see the actual size of the image as it will print ........... any suggestions would be appreciated .

What resolution are you running?  Say if you're running 1024x768 try changing it to 1152x864 or higher.  You might also have to manually adjust the screen size of the monitor and take measure to see if the ruler scale is correct.
