Scaling = Resizing ?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My Paint.Net is just a few days old and upgraded to 3.56.3972.42619 :-) one hour ago. As far as I remember the previous

version had a 'scaling' option. If that's true it must have been replaced by 'resize' now. Anyhow it should do the same.

The problem I'm dealing with however is the following:

1) I drew and printed a square of 100x100mm

2) with 'picture adapted to the frame' ON (translated from my Dutch version) the printed size was 97.5x98.0mm

3) with 'picture adapted to the frame' OFF the printed size was 97.0x97.0mm

4) but when I started with a NEW drawing of 21.17x15.88 (standard ?) instead of my previously changed 210x290mm (A4)

the printed area was 130x128mm.

Apparently the size of a printed figure is depending on the seize of the frame ? How can I make an A4 to my standard basic ?

And what happens when I resize the figure ? I will give it some tries, but I do like to be sure and certain before throwing away

heaps of A4 sheets. boltbait.hmm.png

Yes, I know Paint.Net is not a vector package, but I 'm almost sure it can be used on constructing cardboard models. Don't you ?

Greetings from a freezing cold Amsterdam area,

Gerard

Try this:

Download and install the Printer+ plugin.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Open a new file, set canvas size to 210x290mm.

Place the 100x100mm drawing in the center.

Print using the Printer+ plugin effect set to A4 paper and zero margin size.

No features have been added or removed in v3.5.6.

Hi Sarkut,

I still do not obtain the correct print-out. What is wrong in the way I'm doing it ?

There is a step missing after Step 3.

Thanks Sarkut, thát works fine. Forgot to check the A4 size after resizeing. It's exactly 75mm now!

So I can try to draw a simple model (finding out how to mutually connect all curves and straights properly) and then use it as an example on the cardboard modeling-site I'm working on. Thanks again.

@ Sarkut: Image dimensions & file size? boltbait.hmm.png

Edit: gerard1938 - that goes for you too. Maximum image dimension should be 800px (not 2338 pixels) as per Rule 29

Please resize your images accordingly.

I've got a 404-error on this link:

Missing 'www' in de readme.txt file of "how to install plugins" -> http://paintdotnet.f...php?f=16&t=2023 has to be http://www.paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2023.

All links to the Forumer site are obsolete. The thread you want can be found here: Installing Plugins.
