When you open and resize a picture that has a resolution that is greater than 640 x 480 pixels in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, the Original Size that is shown in the Resize and Crop panes is incorrectly shown as 640 x 480, not the actual original size of the picture.
This behavior occurs in Picture Manager to enhance performance by displaying a thumbnail of the picture at a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.
When the picture is edited, the full image is then loaded. If you look at the zoom ratio, you will notice that it changes from 100% to 50%. This change indicates that the original picture was downloaded.
