Subject description: Screen proportions change on different computers
 

Say I do a screen capture.

Then I take the screen capture and cut out a part in GIMP. I paste it as a new file, then export it.

All is fine so far.

Then I put the file on a USB stick and load it into a different computer. Looks squashed.

Is there a setting in GIMP I can activate to avoid this from happening? Or any other strategy?

Set the dpi consistently.
If you have a high resolution monitor that uses 120dpi and your picture looks OK, then you change to a Laptop screen that shows 60dpi, the picture will be twice the size - and vice versa.
