A question was asked back in 2005 about precise bitmaps. I have a similar 
question with regard to Mathematica version 7.

Looking at the new image-manipulation functions in V7, I expected this to be 
quick ... I'd like to be able to create a series of stimuli for use in an 
experiment. The first step in creating the stimuli is to create a 512 x 512 
greyscale image with a white background and which contains the drawn 

I tried the following to create a JPEG image with dimensions 128x128 ...


but instead the image dimensions are 360 x 363 pixels. I had also hoped that 
I could obtain an antialiased arc but the only antialiasing option seems to 
be for Style, which then produces a non-Graphics object.

Can anyone see a simple (i.e., not very low-level programming) solution to 
the problem within Mathematica? What have I missed conceptually that would 
explain the 360x363 pixel dimensions instead of my expected 128x128? And is 
there a way to obtain the anti-aliased circle?
