You've posted this in the tutorials section. I'll move it to the Paint.NET Discussion & Questions section for you.

The zoom you are using is altering the view on your monitor, not the actual image. Try using Image > Resize and setting the amount to 200%.

Next you may need to crop the image to the area you want. Use the rectangle select tool to select the area you want to keep and press Ctrl + Shift + X.

File > Save As...
