I make a sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 plain and simple.  I want to drag and drop a picture onto the new sheet and when I do the image gets a lot smaller, what's going on?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

your document aspect ratio is higher than the image which is 72 dpi.

a new document with the size you mentioned is default to have 300dpi

try creating new document with the same sze and reduce the resolution to 72 before hitting ok button
