Change default resolution

Recommended Posts


When I open a new file, the default canvas size is 800 x 600 pixels with a resolution of 96 DPI (~37.8 DPCM).

However, my 27", full HD (1920 x 1080) screen has a pixel pitch of 0.311mm (~0.012244").

(Yes, I know this is generally considered 'low', but as a long-time-glasses-wearing, mid-life-crisis kinda-person, it's plenty crisp enough for me.)

Now, with Windows 10 display settings natively set to 100%, my real-world DPI is ~81.67 DPI, so quite a bit lower than the default 96 DPI; 21.59%, in fact.

Of course, I can manually set this in Canvas Size each time, but I'd prefer to set it as a default setting... if it's at all possible.

Is it?

Many thanks
