Why is my Canvas Size PPI Inaccurate to the Print?

Recommended Posts

I've got an image that I want to be life size. I've got the canvas set to 300 PPI and the image is said to be 2.14" x 3". I print it and it is the size of the whole page. It appears the printing options are "Fit to whole page" and then preset sizes on down from there. I don't want any preset sizes but the actual size. I want this card to print exactly the size it says in the Canvas option.


What am I missing here?

Paint.net uses the basic 'Print Pictures' wizard that is built into Windows.


If you need more extensive options, like printing actual size, you can use the Print It plugin.
