Create and print circle of exact diameter in cm


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is it possible to create a circle of exact cm in Paint.net? I know how to set the ruler to cm. I know holding shift creates a perfect circle and I can see width/height at the bottom corner of the screen in cm. When I print the page the circle diameter is different. I assume this depends a lot on the resolution, so I've tried setting the page pixels to be the resolution of my machine. What else do I need to do to get the diameter of the printed circle to be the measurement I need?

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Try the PrintIt plugin and set there Layout->Image Size to 'Print Size of Image'.

 

It is always a good id to set the resolution of the image to the one you like to use on the printout but this has just impact to the quality of the image. The size should be correct using the above settings anyway.
