Image resizing inconsistency

Recommended Posts

I have just been trying to resize some images on the latest version -  3.510.4297.28964 - and I have typed the measurements that I wanted into the print size fields on the resize dialogue. The actual sizes the program resizes the images to differ though - some look to be about right, whereas some come out much larger, but they all show the dimensions that I inserted in the canvas size box. 

I'm sure I've done this before and this hasn't happened?

Print size is a function of the dimensions in pixels divided by the DPI setting. Paint.NET uses the DPI to estimate the print size. This is pretty much the only place the DPI is used.

You need to set both fields if you are setting the image size by the estimated print size.
