No, again the image is taking up 1" of space only. Unless the image takes up 2" of space it will not look distorted

Now since the distortion depends on only 2 factors which I explained above, increasing ppi should not affect the quality of the image in any way. Note: in case the total pixels on the screen are reduced to a limit where it is less than the pixels on the image there will be a slight loss in quality. To summarize picture quality depends on the size of a pixel as perceived by the eyes.

Sorry for not being clear, distortion depends on the ratio of image size (in pixels) and the distance between the image and the eyes. By that I mean if you have a picture which is of HD quality and one which is of HD+ quality if you dont move your head the HD+ should look better. If you move you head towards the picture the image will appear more and more distorted. A good example would be the extremely large LCD display which are in the malls. They look quite clear when you are away from them but the more near you get to them the worse they look.
