Affinity Photo: DPI change doesn't stick

Recommended Posts

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.

HI Bauke this is an issue with the DPI in the metadata overwriting the DPI set by the user. This has been logged. You can work around this by unticking embed metadata in the more options when exporting

Hi Chris,

 

Any news on the topic? It's almost a year later and I still have to use the workaround (which isn't always desirable).

2018 08 08 I still have this problem.

Source image is 300 DPI > resize document to 100 DPI > export > image size changed but still 300 DPI.

Is this problem will be forever?
