Ok, this one is probably just a newbie question but I just don't get it yet. How can I see the real document size (in pixels)? I tested with all the zoom percentages and size options but I still can't see the real document size in affinity. I want to create a document that match my screen size, which is 2880x1800px and 220ppi (macbook pro retina display). - New document is created with 2880x1800px and 72dpi. - Go to view and select 100%. This will show the document way bigger than the screen size. - Go to view and select Actual Size. This will show the document smaller than the screen size. - Change the dpi to 300dpi. This change the actual size, now the document looks smaller on 100% zoom. - Now I change it to 220dpi just on test if the dpi has something to do with the ppi of the screen but it doesn't. Conclusion: - I had no idea what is coming on here but it seems imposible to precisely match my screen pixel size. - Why the dpi value affects the actual size? since Im working with pixels, dpi should not have any effect on the document size. Did I missed a setting? I also tried by selecting the Pixel (Retina) mode and Pixel Size mode, but neither resolve the problem. My logic says that if you set a 100% zoom it should display all the pixels of your document, and if your document has the same pixel size of your screen, it should match perfectly with it. This is the way in which Photoshop, Pixelmator and many other works. Thanks in advance!
I am trying to see on my screen my image in the actual print size -- I mean the size it would be if it was printed -- on both the Affinity Photo and Designer programs for iPad. Can't seem to find it - I found the navigator function displaying the view at 100% but I am not sure that means that it is print size? Also, I would like to be able to change the DPI of the image. I found how to do it from Affinity Photo desktop (under resize) but not on the iPad version. I am trying to have 300DPI for my image, and I need the program to resize the file accordingly as I don't know how many pixels that would be. Thank you.
Having watched the quick Vimeo tutorial I have to wonder how an image can be truly representative of the size, since although the software can determine your actual working system resolution, how can it know your screen ppi? Have I missed or misconstrued the point or is this a real matter?
