    Those Pesky Pixels

    So when I take a digital picture I basically have a grid (or mosaic as Erik says) of pixels horizontal times vertical.

    Scale to Fit Media Print Option

    When I check "Scale to Fit Media" in my print options what exactly is going on? Does it get resampled? Does the resolution change? And what is the difference between using this option and setting my document size in the "Image Size" dialog box?
