I had an XP computer with 32 bit system. When I got a new PC after my old XP crashed, all my images I had were shrunk even though they shouldn't have.

Why did my Windows XP 32-bit computer display them larger than my Windows XP 64-Bit? The Pixel dimensions stayed the same, but on Windows 7 it has a decreased image size. That ruins the image by decreasing resolution. Can anyone explain this? Some of my images lost more than half their resolution, and some are 1/4 their size. Does the difference of the 32-bit and 64-bit affect images in such a dramatic way? I experienced a similar situation with certain other images online which my XP displayed larger. I use to think my images were the problem but now I know its the computer system.

Can you show some examples? I find it hard to believe that an operating system would automatically shrink your images.
