Size of Iphone 6 configured is correct as it comes in the AD template?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been designing for months in Affinity designer with size Iphone 6, as it comes configured (375 pt x 667 pt) and today, when importing to the work table a design made in the same program in size DINA 6 , I've realized that the dimensions were not  proportional. Those of the DINA 6 in mm are correct but when passing the measurements of the Iphone 6  from pt to mm I realize that the size of this was bigger than the real.

???

 

Thanks

Hi Miquel,

 

I'm not sure if I understand the nature of your issue. I have just checked the size of the iPhone 6 screen and it is 375 x 667 which matches our template in the app.

 

What do you mean by DINA 6?

The size in pt is 375 x 667 but if you set it in mm it is 132,3 mm x 253,3 mm and think must be ( 104 x 58 mm) and i've realized that because i have compared with a imported A6 (105 mm x 148mm) in the same work table and both were not proportional

I'm probably confused with something, but so far I've been checking my work by importing jpg to my phone and had not noticed anything, but now I've gone to print the document in its original size and I realize that it prints to that wrong big size.

I do not understand what you mean by any of this. Why do you think 132,3 mm x 253,3 mm must be 104 x 58 mm, if that is what you are saying? How specifically are you making the comparison with an A6 paper size & the template size?

 

It may help to know that the length of a point (pt) has several different definitions, & that Affinity (like Photoshop & most other graphic apps) uses the so-called "DTP point" (desktop publishing point) as standard. That is equal to 1/72 of an inch, or slightly less than 0.3528 mm (0.3527777778 mm to 10 decimal places). So for example, 375 points is equal to about 132.3 mm (132.2916666667 mm to 10 decimal places), & so on.

 

"A" series paper sizes are defined by the ISO 216 standard, which of course is based on the metric system to begin with, but because they are based on an A0 size of one square meter & each subsequent smaller size A(n) is defined as A(n-1) cut in half parallel to its shorter side, which would reduce the area by a factor of the square root of two (another irrational number), the standard sizes are rounded to the nearest mm.

 

So, while an A6 sized object in Affinity is exactly 105 x 148 in mm, it is about 297.6 x 419.5 in points, about 4.134 x 5.827 in inches, or about 297.64 x 419.53 in pixels.

Thank you for your explanation, R C-R, it is simple and clear, but although I did not know how to explain the reason for my confusion, I still have some doubt.

In the screenshot I uploaded, I created in a working table, an A6  for a flier (1) and a frame for an iphone  mockup (2) .

I still did not understand why they don't appear proportional in size in the same working table.

On the other hand looking at the drawing (3) where the official measures of the Iphone are shown,  I did not understand the relation of measures between mm ( 58 x 104 )  and points (375 x 667).

I am still not completely sure what has confused you, but The Ultimate Guide To iPhone Resolutions & iPhone 6 Screens Demystified web pages may help you understand the relationship of 'native' point resolution to display resolution.

Well, don't mix up the physical phone panel sizes with their supported display resolution! - There are several small 58 x 104 mm panels available on the market with different supported resolutions, that of the iPhone 6 model supports the indicated resolution.
