dropping image into an open file | size issue (dpi)


Recommended Posts

Awesome feature, will use this a lot!

 

But if you drop an image into an already opened file, it imports it much bigger.

If you drop it into Affinity's homepage it works fine.

 

Steps:

 

  • Create a Affinity file size: 5411 x 2516px (size of the image bellow)
  • Open this via safari: https://unsplash.com/photos/QqSlW0a2Dwg (click the download button from here - it opens the high res image in a new safari tab)
  • Drop image in affinity
  • Check the imported image dimensions in the "Transform Studio" on the right pane
  • (update: and if you try to resize this layer to the original dimension, via the Transform Studio, it freezes the app)

 

Someone with iOS beta 8 could try this? and from other sources besides safari...

 

Thanks

 

 

Stuff:

  • iPad Pro 12.9 (2015)
  • Affinity 1.6.5 (Beta 1)
  • iOS 11 beta 7

4.166 is that "golden" ratio of 300/72

Whenever you see that ratio you are dealing with one image that has been created at 300dpi and one image created at 72dpi, which is why you see an unexpected sizing issue

Unfortunately I do not use Affinity on an iPad so I cannot help any further (especially with the freezing, when trying to resize.)

If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Probably not the best choice of adjective, Carl! The "golden ratio" is widely understood to mean 1.618:1 (or 1:0.618, which is the same thing). ;)

OK, call it my "special" ratio which whenever I encounter it I know it's due to a mismatch 300/72 dpi issue

OK, we can call it your special ratio if you like, although it does sound a tad proprietorial! :P
