GetThumbnail size vs GetHeight and GetWidth

I've been playing around with container types and contents, and there is something I don't understand.


I have a script that imports an image into a Temporary container field. (To be deleted later)

I have another MyThumbnail container field that is 5" x 5" (360 x 360 pt) on my layout.


After an image is imported into the Temporary container field, the script also sets the MyThumbnail container field accordingly:

Set Field (MyThumbnail);

GetThumbnail (Temporary; 360; 360)


I have two other text fields:  GetContainerWidth and GetContainerHeight. These are calculation fields:

GetHeight (MyThumbnail)

GetWidth (MyThumbnail)


The original image (as opened in Photoshop) is 1314 px X 306 px (resolution 72 ppi). If I create GetHeight and GetWidth fields for the Temporary container, they also show 1314 px X 306 px. But I was surprised that the GetHeight and GetWidth fields for the MyThumbnail container show the same. Since I used GetThumbnail and specified 360 px, shouldn't the GetHeight and GetWidth for the MyThumbnail field show a smaller size?
