I am working on a VS C# project using VS 2017. As of now it consists of the main WinForm and six other WinForms. All the forms will feature an image which I am dropping into a picture box. For some unexplained reason on one of the forms the image is huge. The physical dimensions are 1152 x 648. On all the other forms the dimensions are 221 x 239. The dimensions are dim so I cannot adjust them. When I browse for the image I am choosing the same one.  What is causing this one form to use different dimensions?

I will shrink this down and try again. I found it odd that all were fine except one. I see no difference in any of them.
