I created some documents using A4 paper (297mm 210mm Landscape) with a DPI resolution of 1200.

These documents have the correct pixel resolution of 14031x9921 pixels.

Looking around i saw that in the Resize menu of the document it shows 297mm 210mm and 600 DPI!!

Furthermore resizing does not allow to set any value higher than 600dpi.

A document with 297mm 210mm 600dpi does not have 14031x9921 pixels!

 

My questions are:

1 How do i know the exact dpi embedded in the metadata of the file?

2 I believe my documents are 14031x9921 px but will they print on an A4 paper without any resampling on the printer side? In other words do they have 1200dpi and A4printing size or do they have 600dpi and a much larger printing size?

3 What is the maximum DPI supported in Affinity Photo?

 

Thanks to whomever will take the time to understand what I am saying and will try to clear up my confusion.

Hi @Yukimaru,

 

Welcome to the forums. 

 

1. You check the file info after you export it. Right click> Properties or you import the file back to Affinity and go to Document > Resize document and you will see the current DPI. 

2. 14031x9921 @ 1200DPI will be an A4 size. 

3. There is no maximum DPI. You can set it to any numbers you would like. 

 

If you don't tick the "resample" when you resize, your document size in px will not be changed. 

 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Thanks for the reply.

 

After exporting a file on the ipad you can not right click it, its only possible to long press it which gives you only limited info such as date created and file size. Is there some other way on iOS11 to know detailed information on an image? 

 

Anyway I emailed the file to a friend with a desktop computer and found that indeed it had the correct resolution of 1200DPI.

This means that there is a bug which should be dealt with!

 

As I said before when going to Document>Resize the current document DPI value shown is 600dpi while the document had a dpi of1200. So there are two issues here, first someone does not see the correct dpi value if it has a file with a resolution above 600dpi, and then people can not resize a document from a lower resolution to a resolution above 600dpi. I know is quite uncommon to work with such big resolutions but i guess fixing these issues should not be too much of a problem. Hope someone from Affinity will take care of this bug.

Sorry. I was looking at the Desktop Versions. 

 

There no build-in info panel to check the embedded meta-data. With the iPad, it seems to be a hard-coded limitation in terms of the MAX DPI on the resize menu, which cannot go above 600. If you start a document with any resolution and don't resize, it will keep it throughout. I will log this with our developers to get a fix. 

 

EDIT: Moved to bugs. 

 

Thanks,

Gabe.

I have an app called Big Photo which gives a lot of info on photo including pixel size and DPI.
