Hi all,


I'm using paint.net ver. 2.6.

I'm trying to measure length using the grid and viewing the image in its "actual size", but 'm getting a wrong value (e.g. 3cm instead of 1cm).


Is there a correct way to measure length in paint.net?

Hi Ariela, there is a strict rule that this forum does not support old versions of Paint.NET (see forum rules). So please update to 3.5.11.


In general if you are getting bad values in measurement then the DPI setting of your image is not correct (so check the value in Image->Resize... and adapt it there).


If the DPI settings are correct then you may also use the MeasureSelection plugin.
