    I converted the pixel dimensions (1024x768) to 9.56" x 7.47", but don't quote me, I'm old and feeble

    I cut out a piece of paper to those dimensions and it looks correct. I stare at my 'paper screen' in anticipation of April third - IM

    PS - I've already started formatting photographs for the iPad, hope I'm right....

    Well

    Well the bad news is that your pictures my be wrong. The 1024 x 768 is right but if you look at the link Apple - iPad - View the technical specifications for iPad. your dimensions are dead on for the physical size but not the viewable area.

    It looks more like 7.75 x 5.82 and that concerns me a bit. I used Screen Aspect Ratio & Dimension Calculator to determine these numbers based on Apple Spec that it is 9.7 diagonal. But I know pictures can be deceiving but it looks so much larger.

    Thumbs up Math is fun....

    You are right about 7.76 x 5.82 because you can find the Diagonal measurement by using the Pythagorian Theorem to solve for the 3rd side of a right triangle and it equals 9.7 inches.

    No need to format pictures for it anyway - iTunes is going to "optimize" them for you when you sync anyway.
    This article shows how to tell iTunes to NOT do that, FYI:

    Huh? That is for an iPod. There is no such option in iTunes for the iPad.

    Moreover, why the heck is THIS thread being revived....
