nicephotos Posted June 19, 2012 Share Posted June 19, 2012 I hope someone is kind enough to help me with my questions: A) I am using a 825 pixel x 1125 pixel, 300 dpi photo (poker card size) which shows in the 'resize window' a printed photo size of: 2.75 x 3.75 cm. However when viewing the photo in painnet on the screen, the ruler on top, shows something totally different. A#1) Is it correct, that the ruler displayed, needs to be ignored, as it's not actual cm or inches? A#2) Is it correct, that the size of the photo will be the one shown in the resize window only? (Though I have experienced a discrepancy when printing, too). B ) On the above mentioned 825 x 1125 photo I need to place another photo. The size of that photo is in pixels: 213 x 312 pixel, 28 dpi. Now, when I place this smaller photo onto the poker card size, it's displayed, as if you place a stamp onto an A4 sheet of paper, despite of the poker size actually only being 0.75 cm wider and the height being only 0.29 cm larger on each size. B#1) Why am I experiencing such a discrepancy? B#2) Is this normal, as the computer screen displays it differently, or am I doing something wrong? My apologies for any confusion, it's difficult to describe, as I don't really understand what's going on with this, and so might be describing it wrongly or from a wrong angle. Who can help? Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
