I wonder if someone can help me please.  I want to print a couple of photographs for insertion into a locket.  As you can imagine, the finished size is very small (about 15mm square).  I realise that I will have to print them on larger paper, but how to I keep them at the required size?  I'm relatively new to Affinity Photo, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Create a new document at the paper size you intend to use, and then use the Place command (found on the File menu) to add each of the photographs. You can resize a photo precisely by selecting it on the APh canvas and using the W and H controls in the Transform panel.

That's wonderful - thank you.  One subsidiary question, if I may.  Although I have changed the measurement criteria to millimetres, the resize box show inches. How do I change that please?

Use "x mm" in the 'resize box' AKA Transform Studio. Or change the Document Units to mm in the New Document dialog and start over if you are not too far along.

Or no matter how far along you are, choose ‘Resize Canvas...’ from the Document menu and change the units without changing the size.

That would be better/best. Forgot about that one.
