  1. I think the app is missing a tool, or I can not finding it, to know what's the DPI of an imported image into a document (or even the real size of the image file in pixels, its resolution). I found that if I important an image I can not tell if the image has the dpi needed for good quality depending of the size it is placed in the design... the only way I can know that is using some math, with the size of the image in inches in the document compared to the resolution of the imported image, but that takes time when there should be some kind of bar, tab or tool where one can see DPI and other relevant info of the images in the document.
  2. I'm unsure whether this is a bug or expected behaviour in v1.7 but it is a change from v1.6 so I'm raising it as a possible bug. I frequently copy and paste images from Affinity Photo to Affinity Designer. The images in Affinity Photo are always by default 144 dpi (because they are screen grabs from a Mac Retina Display). By default when I open the screen grab in AP the document defaults to pixels as its unit of measurement (which is fine). I then have an AD 'print' document set to 300 dpi and by default use mm for the units. In version 1.6 when I copied the AP file/layer and pasted it into my AD file, AD would 'honour' the pixel size of the AP file regardless of the difference in dpi between the two documents, so e.g. if the AP file/layer I'm copying is 2,000 x 2,000px, when pasted into my AD file it was pasted as 169.33 x 169.33mm, i.e. 2,000 x 2,000px, so no conversion took place to account for the difference between the different dpi settings between AP and AD. In version 1.7 this is not the case, taking the same scenario as above, AP document at 144dpi, default units set to pixels, AD document at 300dpi, default units set to mm. When copy/pasting between the two, the 144dpi file/layer pastes at 352.78 x 352.78mm which is 4,166.67 x 4,166.67px, i.e. it has resampled the pasted layer to honour the pixel resolution of the AD document (2,000px at 144dpi = 4,166.67px at 300dpi). However, if before pasting the AP file/layer I change my AD document from mm to px units, maintaining the 300dpi document resolution, when I paste the same 2,000 x 2,000px layer from AP, it is pasted into AD at 2,000 x 2,000px and not 4,166.67 x 4,166.67px which seems a little odd, so it is ignoring the difference between the two document resolutions. So my question is this, is this 'expected' behaviour in v1.7 or a 'bug', as in, shouldn't pasting the file/layer honour the conversion between the two different document pixel resolutions and adjust accordingly or should it paste at the same original size regardless of the difference between the AP and AD dpi's and document units which is the way it worked in v1.6, i.e. in v1.6 with the same set up as above, when I pasted the 2,000 x 2,000px file/layer from a 144dpi AP document with units set to pixels into a 300dpi AD document it pasted at 2,000 x 2,000px regardless of whether my AD document was set to mm or pixels.
  3. 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!!
  4. If would be nice, if AF photo displays the resolution of an image at a specific size like PS do it in the bottomleft of an imagewindow. So you can decide on one look if the image is printable. The image in the sample isnt (72dpi on imagesize 224 x 338 mm).
  5. I've got a bunch of files exported from Affinity Publisher that have all come out at the wrong DPI (all exported images are 96 DPI despite the documents being 72 DPI). As I can't seem to find a solution to that, and I've already exported a bunch of assets, I'm attempting to fix these images via a macro and a batch process. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like that's going to be viable either. The only way I've found to change the document DPI is through the resize document method, but this is unsuitable for use in a macro. When you run the "resize document" as a macro, it attempts to replicate the exact settings of the recording. This means instead of adjusting the DPI, and resizing the document in relation to that DPI change, it sets the DPI and scales the document to match the original documents size was at the time of recording. Is this intended behaviour? Could there be another way of approaching this?
  6. I would like to print at 600 DPI which my Xerox Phaser 6180 printer supports but I cannot set a DPI higher than 400 in Affinity Photo for MAC OSX. Whether I create a new blank document or load a 6000 x 4000 pixel image, the only values available to me are: 72, 96, 144, 192, 300, and 400.
  7. Hi, so when I resize my pictures to 300dpi and then save the picture and then export it as a jpeg, when I upload them to a photo printing site, they are only uploading at 99dpi!!!!!! what am I doing wrong here ???? please help, I am so frustrated!!!
  8. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.257. When I change the document DPI, some things change but others don't. Consider the attached document. The first image shows the document at 300DPI. The second image shows the same document at 144DPI. The visible size of the corners of the rectangle increase - the absolute sizes in the context bar have also increased - and so has the visible width of the paragraph decoration - but the sizes in the Paragraph panel are as before. However, the thickness of the rectangle stroke is the same, as is the size of the text and also the height of the text decoration. Why do some things change and some others don't? Is this expected behaviour? DPI-change.afpub
  9. I have a png with a transparent background that I’ve imported into Designer on my iPad Pro. Original dpi was 150. I need to upload it to an online vendor that only accepts 300 dpi files. (I know.) Changing the dpi in Designer only seems to work if I uncheck Embed Metadata in the Export screen — but when I do that and save as png, the resulting image has a white background. If I leave the setting checked, the background is transparent but the dpi remains listed as 150. Is it possible to change the dpi of the saved png to 300, but retain the transparency? edit: I’ve discovered that I can make this work if I first create a 300 dpi document and then use Place Image to add my image. I can then turn off embed metadata and retain transparency. Still not sure why I can’t start with an existing png, though.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. Can someone tell me how to change the DPI of an image? Can not find it in the Workbook. Thanks!
  25. 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.
