Hi, I am looking for advice on how to properly set up my canvas in Affinity Photo for print. I have only created composites for use across web and digital content - never print. 

Few things to know:

- I do not use my own photos, only royalty free imagery from sites like Pixaby. So I never begin with a set “background”. 
- I would like to set up my canvas for large prints (i.e 24x36, 16x20, etc). However, is there a way to set up these sizes that is scalable so that I have the option to print it much smaller if I wanted, without distorting the image? 
- I’m not certain how DPI, pixel size, and resizing come into play when dealing with print. 
 

Any advice is much appreciated - thank you!

Hi MD3,

Welcome to the forums :)

In regards to your second point you would have to export the design at different resolutions and using different resampling methods depending on if you are sizing up or down. I would just create the canvas to be the size of the paper you are working with. You may want to take a look at the below tutorials.
