I'm used to exporting objects from CaptureOne at their target dpi - so if I export a file at 105mm wide at 720dpi I know it will read into an A6 portrait 720dpi file in Affinity Designer at full size (say).

Exporting files from Affinity Photo though they seem to go out at 300dpi and need resized on import. Am I missing something - ie a way to set the dpi at output?

Using the latet version of AP and AD on Mac 10.13.5

If your document has 300dpi, it will export at 300dpi. Any DPI changes have to be done in Document > Resize Document. You cannot set the DPI at output, unless you're exporting as PDF.

It's probably too late and not relevant anymore, but I had similar issue. I found out that when exporting you can assign specific resolution for each slice. You just have to press this small triangle on the left of the slice name in slices window. There you have some options to set width, height, magnitude, etc. This solved my problem. Not exactly setting dpi, but it worked for me.

You have to be kidding me! I find out now? I'm working on an 11"x17" document at 600 DPI because it will be enlarged for large posters and needs to be shrunk for web use. It would be a terrible practice to go in and change the DPI settings of the actual document for each export. I would imagine the file will become degraded with each resizing/resampling, n'est pas? There has to be a better way than changing document size!
