I think the app is missing a tool, or I can not finding it, to know what's the DPI of an imported image into a document (or even the real size of the image file in pixels, its resolution). I found that if I important an image I can not tell if the image has the dpi needed for good quality depending of the size it is placed in the design... the only way I can know that is using some math, with the size of the image in inches in the document compared to the resolution of the imported image, but that takes time when there should be some kind of bar, tab or tool where one can see DPI and other relevant info of the images in the document.

Hi manthx,

Welcome to the forums :)

If you select the Move tool, then select the embedded image you should see the images physical size, as well as the DPI on the context toolbar in the app. I hope this helps!

Dan, if you useResize and or Metadata studio, the side sown does not reflect the selected layer in current release. Can do screen recording if needed.

if you resize by dragging with Move tool you get a tiny window that shows size in pixels. No context menu. Is that what you are referring to?

My sincerest apologies, I was referring to the desktop variant having not read the ticket correctly.

AFAIK the Resize option has never reflected the selected layer, however I'm not certain about the metadata studio. I'll check this is correct with our Photo expert :)

In terms of viewing the DPI of a placed document on the iPad, I don't believe this is currently possible, so I'm moving this thread to Feature Requests for our devs to see and consider!

Ok, thanks... This would be very useful as many times I have to deal with images that may have or not the required DPI for best quality design. Having that info at hand would make keeping track of the quality of the images easy.
