Maybe you didn't mean to use `size-in-pixels'?

By using `size-in-pixels', you effectively request that the image takes
on a different relative size for different size displays, because the
scale that is used depends on the display size.

It sounds like the PS drawing area is a little smaller than your screen
(in device-specific coordinates), so the bitmap ends up relatively
larger in the PS output.
