DPI change in macro forces resample/resize

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

the creation of a macro that changes the DPI setting only, leads to distorted pictures where this macro is applied to. All photos this macro is applied to receive the correct DPI setting but the pixel dimensions of the recording photo are applied as well. This is where the distortion happens.

Macro was recorded like this:

  1. On loaded image select "Document" -> "Resize document" 
  2. Uncheck "Resample" option -> pixel values become disabled (800x600px)
  3. Change DPI -> in my case to "300"
  4. Click "Resize"
  5. Stop recording and save the macro

Applying this macro to a 72dpi photo with 1200x600px, the values become 300dpi with 800x600px. Looks like the unchecked "resample" setting is ignored on recording.
I also tried to record the "uncheck resample" as a single step but it didn't work either, as well as deleting meta data.

The 1 step macro is attached to this post.

I am running the following setup:

OSX 10.14.6 Mojave
Affinity Photo 1.7.2 (desktop trail)

Please have a look to this possible bug.
Or if the problem is in front of the computer, just let me know how to record this macro correctly ;-)

Best regards and thanks for building these awesome apps!
