I have to export files with different resolution (basically one copy at 300 and one at 72).
I can't see a dpi option in File/Export... nor in Export Persona.

Plus, about the preview when exporting: I don't find any option the view... how can I see the preview at 100% or more?

Thanks

What file format(s) do you want to export the file to? What is the end use for the files that require a specific DPI setting?

Which Affinity app & version are you using? If it is one of the two V2 apps that shows a preview in the File > Export window, you can use the same keyboard shortcuts to change the view size of the preview in that window that you would use to change the view of the document in the View>Zoom menu item, even though yoi can't use the menu for that.

So for example, on a Mac you could use CMD and a number key to change the view size.

From the Help file...

When previewing your export, the following modifier keys can be used to zoom in to areas of interest and view the results of different settings applied in the dialog:

  • Hold the CTRL key while scrolling (using a scroll wheel, if available) to zoom in and out of the preview.
  • Hold the Shift key while scrolling (using a scroll wheel, if available) to scroll left or right.
  • Press CTRL + to zoom in.
  • Press CTRL - to zoom out.
  • Press CTRL +1 to zoom to 100%.
  • Press CTRL +0 to zoom to fit.

Which help file would that be, & for which version (V1 or V2)?

The 3 'Hold the while...' items (two of which appear to be duplicates) do not in your paste show which key(?) to hold, nor do any that I have tried work to zoom in & out or left & right in V2 on my Mac.

Looks like copying from the Help file is a bit problematic and has missed out words

I have updated my post above with the missing words now added in bold

For Windows or Mac, online or builtin? (If online, could you provide the URL; if built-in, maybe a screenshot would make this clearer.)

I'm asking because neither of the top 2 work for me, not with CTRL, CMD, or Alt/Option when trying to use the scroll wheel on my mouse, although the others do work on my Mac using the CMD key.

The first one shows the Mac symbol for the Option key, the second shows the Mac symbol for the Shift key, but neither work for me with the scroll wheel in neither AD V2 nor AP V2.

EDIT: what does work if the preview is larger than what will fit in the preview view, scrolling with the scroll wheel without any modifier key does scroll the view up & down; with the Shift key held down scrolling left & right does work.

So I think the help file is at best misleading.

Best you log that as a bug or documentation error then

I don't have a mouse so can't say if it works on Windows or not

But the other CTRL key options do

CTRL + numbers works well, and that's exactly what I needed, thanks; while + and - don't work at all.
Scrolling wheel + CTRL is useless cause it's totally out of control XD (too unmanageable)

I'm using V2, and I want to export different file, depending on the workflow. The end use is to send draft to clients via mail or use photos on the web.


When I work on afphoto at 300dpi, then I usually export a jpeg at 72dpi and a sometimes a PNG (at 72 and/or 300 or 150, it depends by the job).
Another frequent case is when in afpub I need to export some of the pages as draft, in jpeg at 72

[I would also need to do it in batch, but macro doesn't works. If I record a resampling at 72dpi it will also include the dimensions, which in different further images will result as a distorsion... John Rostron macro works for that]

For the zoom CTRL+numbers is ok, while others simply don't work

Use these macros in a batch job:

John

Thank you John! It is very usefull.
A "mantain proportions" with resample option would resolve the problem, but since it's not available I think your macro is the best solution... I don't understand why resampling options are so poor... For a professional photographer is a daily tool

May I suggest to take a look at ImageMagick? For batch processing it's possible to run

for f in *.jpg; do magick $f -density 72 `basename $f .jpg`-k.jpg; done

Of course, there are tons of other options to adjust your desired results.

Command lines?! It's 2023, I'm just not considering this kind of option 😅

Then you'll have to wait for Serif to add the missing feature or live with some plugin. I'll continue with my approach and get the job done effectively. :ph34r: And if you search these forums, you'll find IM mentioned and suggested quite a lot.

For now the macro and batch are the solution inside the Affinity software, as suggested above by John Rostron, check them out!

@eeviacHi,

You are aware of the fact that on the web DPI means nothing and is only part of the meta data for print!?

So when you save for the web you don't have to look at the DPI.

David

Super smart, thank you David, my problem is resolved now
