I recently stumbled uppon an a strange behavior when trying to load png images in .net with bitmap(string) when the dpi of the image is ca 300. If you have the Nvidia sdk installed search for a file called : C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\SDK 9.0\MEDIA\textures\rectangles\nvlogo_rect.png Write a little program as this.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public const string constImageFile = @"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\SDK 9.0\MEDIA\textures\rectangles\nvlogo_rect.png";
        //public const string constImageFile = @"d:\temp\images\3dlabsnormal.png";
        //public const string constImageFile = @"d:\temp\images\winter.bmp";

        protected Bitmap pBitmap;

        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            pBitmap = new Bitmap(constImageFile);

            this.Size = pBitmap.Size;

        }
        protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
        {
            if (pBitmap != null)
                e.Graphics.DrawImageUnscaled(pBitmap, 0, 0);
        }
    }
}



Notice that the bitmap reports correct width but when drawing it. It will be drawn as a thumb view in the upper left corner. Is there anything here that I've missed? Should have done otherwise? The error/mistake is also reproduced with the image 3dlabsnormal.png which comes with the 3dlabs sdk. Sorry for the bad english, it't not my native language. (Sorry for not showing a screenshot but I've no place to host it so.) EDIT: Switched to using e.Graphics instead of Form.CreateGraphics().
