Odd PNG shrinking?

Recommended Posts

In your browser, right-click on the image and select "View Image Info". This will tell you the actual pixel dimensions of the image and if any scaling has been applied.


Does the reported image size match the image dimensions in the paint.net status bar?


TIP: When you've pasted the image into paint.net, press Ctrl and 0 to set the view size to 100%.

Online images sometimes have a different DPI setting than your local computer. I notice this especially with images created by Mac users. They somehow often save their images for the web at 96 dpi, whereas your windows default scaling is 72 dpi. This results in the image being smaller on your side.
