Importing pictures

Recommended Posts

Sorry I am a nube and am missing something that is probably obvious....


With that said I am attempting to create a collage of passport pictures that are already sized 2X2.  The problem I am having is when I open them up the properties show they are 2x2 but when I attempt to paste them into a canvas that I have set at 4X6 it sais the picture is bigger than the canvas??  I know I can reduce it after I paste it in but I am not sure how to make it exactly 2x2 after doing so.

Hello Sutty - welcome to the forum,

Have you checked the resolution of the two images?
A 2" square picture at 300 dots(or pixels) per inch is larger than a canvas at 96 d.p.i  with minimum side 4".

Have you read this?http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/17049-dpi-and-you-understanding-resolution-for-print-and-web/
