Resizing and exporting as Jpg reverting issue when reopening

Recommended Posts

With a 300 dpi image in affinity photo, I exported as jpg and chose 72 dpi. When I reopen the document in affinity photo or in photoshop it seems to always say that it is 300 dpi. I resized it again and saved it and still the same thing. It's important that I follow the guidelines when submitting my art so I am nervous to send this as I can't figure out why it wont stay 72 dpi? 

Thanks,

Andrea

In the export options try turning off "Embed metadata." (If you export from the Pixel persona, you will have to click the "More" button to see this option.)

 

What sometimes happens is a photo document already has metadata specifying the DPI value embedded in it. Many apps check for this & use that value instead of whatever you set in the DPI section of the export dialog.
