LOL. What a defence!

Publisher 1.9 provides the means to discover the original size of your Pixel object was 423 x 331 pixels.

Also, setting the height of the object to the incorrect 337 pixels creates particular resampling artefacts in its display representation - artefacts that are absent at the correct 331 pixels.

☛ Affinity Designer 1.10.6 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.10.6 ◆ Affinity Publisher 1.10.6 ◆ OSX El Capitan
☛ Affinity V2 apps still not installed and thus momentary not in use under MacOS

I tried to find out where this information is shown but could not spot it in the current Windows beta -- perhaps this is implemented so far in macOS version only.

  1. Select the pixel layer in the 1.9 Publisher beta.
  2. Layer > Convert to Image Resource.
  3. Select Move Tool, and look at the Context Toolbar for the image size/DPI box:

Found out another method, also available in the current release (and probably any earlier) version of Photo, also on Windows. Just scale the image until the document DPI value is shown as single value in the dpi box (at the top left):



That's an inaccurate method in general, although it does work for R C-R's example.

If the original size of the Pixel object is, say, 2000 x 1000 px @ 96 dpi, then resizing the arbitrarily scaled object to 1990 x 995 or 1992 x 996 or 1994 x 997, etc. will each result in a single 96 dpi being reported in the context toolbar.

Within Photo, I do not think that there is any development. If you can open an .aphoto file in Publisher, then you can use the Layer > Convert to Image Resource referred above and get the original size. Otherwise approximation based on manual transformation while watching the DPI value would only be available.

Thank you. i'm using A-Photo only.
