I am not kidding. =20
Make square image 72px width and height.
View it on your Mac.
Get a ruler and measure the square on the screen.
If it has an inch vertically and horizontally
then the resolution of your screen is 72 dpi.
DPI means dot per inch - you can translate it
to pixels per inch.
And BTW Mac was probably the first WYSIWYG system
which meant: what (size) you see on the screen
should be exactly the same (size and shape) on printout.
Windows on PC is not (in this respect) WYSIWYG system.
