    Strange scaling issue (1.6.4.104)

    This might be difficult to see in screenshots (I've attached them though)...so I made a video. Basically, 100% zoom is DPI scaled across screens (in this case, a 1080p on the left, and a 4K on the right)... when it's supposed to be 1:1 pixel despite moving from one screen to another. And hence, I am able to "rezoom" from 100%.. to 100% to the correct scale on each alternate screen... Version: 1.6.4.104 Affinity_Photo_Scaling_Bug.mp4
  2. System information: Operating system: Windows 10 (Anniversary Update) Dual monitor setup One monitor is a 4K screen (3840 x 2160) set to 250% scaling The other monitor is (1920 x 1080) set to 100% scaling Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Steps to reproduce: Simply open Affinity Photo in the 100% scaled monitor. Select a tool (other than Move Tool), and move cursor over your image, it will be very large and pixelate (see screenshot with View Tool, large hand icon) Other Notes: If you move Affinity back to the high DPI display, tool cursor is perfect there. Move Tool, which seems to just use default cursor does not have this issue. Otherwise, I am super impressed how well Affinity works already on High DPI displays and multi monitors, it's not yet perfect, but far far better than a large number of Windows programs and competing photo editing apps. Well done!!
  3. I have two displays...my main one is 1440p and the secondary is 1080p. When launching Publisher, images and text will render pixelated/lower resolution on the main 1440p monitor. This can be rectified by bringing publisher into the second 1080p monitor, where images and text render properly, and then bringing it back to the main monitor. Images and text will then render correctly at 1440p. The problem arises again when I use Ctrl+Shift+W to toggle preview mode on or off. Images and text pixelate again, and I need to repeat the above to fix it. I assume this will have something to do with the new adjustments in the latest update concerning multiple-dpi monitors. I am using Version 1.7.0.157. This Issue did not occur with Version 1.7.0.145 and earlier. Two images are attached to show the difference in rendering. Take note that the interface stays sharp throughout.
  4. If I change the DPI of the documente, the text alignment and the text size of the master pages also change only in the child pages.
  5. Hello I noticed that changing the DPI without resampling doesn't work in Photo 1.4.1. Example: When opening a JPG in Photo, and changing the DPI in Image resizing, I uncheck the resample checkbox because I just want the DPI changed, not the actual height or width. I then save or export the JPG and close it. When I open the JPG again and check its DPI, the number has been reset to its original DPI. I quickly tested this in Affinity Designer but couldn't reproduce the problem there.
  6. Like many people, I've struggled with PPI/DPI and how they affect print quality. The discussions I've seen here are usually actually about PPI and include the advice, "You don't need to worry about DPI unless you're talking about printing," and then they don't mention printing again. But printing is exactly what I'm interested in. I think I have a grasp of the fact that AP says DPI when it means PPI, and that I don't need to worry about what DPI AP says my image has until I'm ready to print. But when I am ready to print, I don't see anyplace to specify what DPI I'd like in my print. It's not in the Canon printer driver and I don't see it in AP's print dialogue. When I was using Adobe, I saved every image I worked with at 300 (DPI? PPI?) and then when I printed I didn't even think about it. But all the discussions here (and the video tutorial Understanding DPI) make me feel really sure that I have absolutely no idea what DPI I'm printing at. (My prints look good, but I'd still like to be clear about this; maybe they could be better.) So how does one properly print at 300 DPI?
  7. I searched the forum but did not find any relevant results. I'm on Imac of 2011 with OSX 10.13.5. I need to change the parameters of some photos for printing (type of color space, print profile, so far no problem, the parameters are stored. the correct dpi and the correct exact size, which I need in the DTP program, instead are not saved, and every time I reopen the file the settings are as before saving (for example 72 dpi). and the DTP program reflects the dpi of the file. (I use the command alt + command + i) to make the changes. I tried to use the export function too, but it does not change anything, the file is always set at 72 dpi. what am I doing wrong? Thank you.
  8. I have read the previous discussions on this topic, and none have resolved this issue for me (and from what I have read, for a lot of other users as well). I am going to try to state this as simply, clearly, and specifically as I can. I am using Windows 10. If I right-click on my target jpeg image, and select properties, it shows a Horizontal and Vertical resolution of 72 dpi. I open the image in AP, and select Document - Resize document. In the pop-up box, I uncheck Resample and change the DPI to 300, and click Resize. I can then either Save or Export (doesn't matter which) the file. Now the problem. If I check the properties of Saved/Exported file it still shows 72 dpi. I need to send the file to the end user, as well as upload the file to a processor for printing an enlargement. Both will reply the file is unacceptable because the resolution is too low. Not surprising since the properties still show 72 dpi. In comparison to Light Room, when I change the resolution in that program the Saved/Exported file properties show 300 dpi. Bottom line - how do I end up with a file from AP whose properties show 300 dpi?
  9. Maybe I am not understanding something, but one thing that is driving me nuts, is, that I seem to be unable to export smaller images (lets say for web and with a size around 200 or 300 px) in a crisp way when text is included. My results are terrible. I get that you can't fill a pixel with two colors but i can't shake off the feeling, that there is something very tricky going on with the rendering machine/ anti-aliasing setting of Affinity when it comes to exporting text and I just wish that it would do a better job there (sorry, I otherwise really love the apps). Anyway to temper with the anti-aliasing? I have Questions like why is a screenshot of 400px picture viewed in half the size (50%) crisper that a 200 px export (no resizing and lanczos3 setting)? Why can a browser show small fonts crisp and why can i not even come close to that when exporting? Latest example: 236x236px web-image, viewed in 100% in AfP looks ok I guess, too small to tell, hahah (due to my screen-resolution?). Now i see the same picture in 100% in the browser and it appears double the size and extremely blurry. Wtf am I missing? To the good people out there : Has anyone of you a best-practice for me, when creating/exporting smaller stuff for web? Can someone help with advice? Thank you very much, Hannah

    Maximum DPI ?!

    I created some documents using A4 paper (297mm 210mm Landscape) with a DPI resolution of 1200. These documents have the correct pixel resolution of 14031x9921 pixels. Looking around i saw that in the Resize menu of the document it shows 297mm 210mm and 600 DPI!! Furthermore resizing does not allow to set any value higher than 600dpi. A document with 297mm 210mm 600dpi does not have 14031x9921 pixels! My questions are: 1 How do i know the exact dpi embedded in the metadata of the file? 2 I believe my documents are 14031x9921 px but will they print on an A4 paper without any resampling on the printer side? In other words do they have 1200dpi and A4printing size or do they have 600dpi and a much larger printing size? 3 What is the maximum DPI supported in Affinity Photo? Thanks to whomever will take the time to understand what I am saying and will try to clear up my confusion.
  11. Hi all, So the export setup in Designer always treats a document as being at 72 DPI regardless of either the document setup or the slice DPI. (This is on 1.6.4). To repro, create a new document, set the type to devices, set the page preset to iPhone X (Retina), hit okay. Then switch to the export personas, go to the slices tab, and choose export slices, select a directory then hit okay. Check the created files, they're sized as though the document was set to 72 DPI (so resolution matches size in points). Go back to Designer, set the slice DPI to 216, you'll get the same result. Let me know if you need any further details for repro. (Side note as this one's likely a feature request than a bug, but it would be great if width and height in the tags for export names worked regardless of how you've set the size). Cheers, Alan.
  12. I'm building a replacement website for my 7-year-old outdated site and need to edit my photos for this new platform. 1. For a photography site that retains large files for automatically sending to the print lab and as the file can be printed at varying sizes (on paper, canvas, etc.), should I save a file at it's original size but at a 300DPI? As these are photos taken over many years with different types of cameras, some images may be 72DPI, others higher, also many are from film cameras. 2. If all need to be saved as 300DPI for optimal printing, then what is the best way to save the file without resizing the original file? (I'm new to AP.) (My site displays optimised file sizes for website speed, so don't need duplicated files.) Many thanks
  13. I have been watching a bunch of video tutorials and ended up with more questions than what any of them answered. Basically they told me the how to use but not enough info. In almost all the videos, they made it seem like this was mostly for web designers. I only work in print, can I not use this if I work at 300dpi? I have NO use for any IOS anything. If I delete all the assets that came with the program, can I later get them back if I ever find a need for them? If assets are available every time I open the program, if I had a lot will it slow down the program? Will it be using more CPU resources? I often have several graphics programs open and the web browser, so I have run my computer out of working memory before and am concerned about the impact of assets being there every time. Thanks Sig
  14. 1. Create a new document 8.5x11" @300dpi 2. Draw a rectangle filling the artboard 3. Copy the rectangle 4. ctrl+alt+shift+n to create new document from clipboard The new document is created based off an incorrect DPI of 72, meaning everything is upscaled but downsampled. Expected result is new document with same dpi (and therefore, actual size) as the original copied content.
  15. Hello guys! Not sure this is a bug but I have two images, both are 1024x768 96dpi. If I open one (via File/Open menu), it opens as 72dpi... why is that? And if I drag and drop the second one on top of the first one, it correctly opens at 96dpi. Obviously it is smaller that the first one in the Photo document. Am I missing something? Thanks!
  16. Can someone tell me how to change the DPI of an image? Can not find it in the Workbook. Thanks!
  17. I’m an illustrator. I’ve started drawing my work in Clip Studio Paint on my iPad, and CSP works best producing art at 600dpi. I was hoping to be able to use Affinity Photo on my iPad to resize these 600dpi greyscale .tiffs produced in CSP into bitmap .tiff files (1200dpi, black and white values only). Is there a way to do this? On my 2015 iPad Pro, it seems like the max dpi for an image file in Affinity Photo is 400dpi. Is that correct? Is there a way to change this? Even though 1200dpi is a very high resolution, my illustrations are not very complex. Thank you.

    Exporting DPI Issue AP

    Hi There, Just logging a possible bug...not a huge concern for me but I have noticed that when I change the DPI to 300 before exporting to a jpeg, export to jpeg, the jpg says the DPI is 350. I have double and triple checked but this happens each time? Weird one, doubt it will make a huge difference but thought I should let you know in case it is a bigger issue for others or elsewhere. Billie
  20. I have a few questions regarding images placed in an Affinity Designer file and the eventual resolution/file size: Is it best for eventual PDF file size to pre-crop images before placing them in my document? ie. does the PDF file still contain image data that falls beyond the edges of pages or masks? Does the AD crop tool achieve the above the same as pre-cropping would? How do I 'uncrop' an image? There doesn't seem to be an option for removing any crop I've applied to an image (beyond stretching the handles back out and trying to line up with the original image edges). I've noticed placing an image in my document and exporting to 'PDF for Export' without any alterations to the placed image results in a large file size (the original image DPI is maintained). However applying the crop tool (even a tiny amount) suddenly results in the image taking the DPI of the document (and bringing the file size right down). Is this intentional? Shaun
  21. The inches don't seem to convert correctly. When I set up a document to be 21" x 18" and click pixels, it goes to 6300px x 5400px It should be 3150px x 2700px I tried another way where I set up a document as 21x18", make my design, and export. It exports much larger than 3150x2700px*. It only correctly saves at the correct pixels if I type in the specific pixels, as opposed to the equivalent inches. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? *PS: I thought it might have something to do with the DPI, but when switching from 300dpi to 150dpi** (which is what I need for Spoonflower fabric printing) and toggle back and forth between pixel and inches.... it still shows as 6300x5400px Yes, I know I could just type in the pixels but I was wondering why this was happening. And being able to accurately type in inches would be super easy (not having to figure out the correct conversion) **I think the 6300x5400px is CORRECT at 300dpi... but not at 150dpi. Why does the pixel not change is essentially what I'm asking? Also, 150dpi was not one of the presets on the dropdown menu, I had to type it out. Maybe that's the problem? Does it really matter?
  22. Hi I've tried to search for this on the forum and internet, also in the help files in affinity photo, so if this has been asked before, I'm sorry. and please send me a link to the answer. I tried to ask via twitter but they havent answered me. I need to know if and how I can scan/open a new file, with more then 400 dpi. I need to send something in to a publisher and they require the pictures to be scanned in at least 1200 dpi. I've looked but I can't figure it out. if anyone can help me I'd be very grateful, even if the answer is that it's not possible. Thank you
  23. OS-X desktop version Suggestion for improvement: When using the "Document/Resize Document" menu-item, if 'Resample' checkbox is not selected, the only resizing allowed is by dpi. (and it's limited to 400dpi using the slider). It would be much more useful, when not resampling, to be able to specify the size desired while having the dpi calculated automatically. Also, changing the size to input into the size box is cumbersome: Unable to select the digits with the mouse, the cursor must be positioned just right, then must delete the digits with the keyboard, before typing in the new size.
  24. If the project document dpi is set to 300 then a tiff is exported using File > Export > Tiff the exported document has a dpi of 72. This is totally wrong. The exported document should absolutely inherit the main project dpi. I am amazed that Affinity Photo, an otherwise very smart program, does this wrong. The workarounds are clumsy and dumb. Please fix this most irksome design flaw immediately.
  25. I just found out that a full UI project I delivered was done using the wrong dpi. Thus the text objects on the exported SVGs have fractions of points (10.49999142pt instead of 14pt). There are some important topics here. 1) Changing DPI settings make little sense for Web and other UI projects since these are screen based. The obvious choice would be to use the current screen dpi; 2) The default value for all Windows machines is 96 dpi. 72 dpi is just for Macs; 3) I believe there is no simple way of changing the default values for new documents, so it's something to remember every time a new project is started. I suggest verifying the screen DPI and use it for web projects, or at least show us how to change the default values if possible.
