Having a problem importing Tiff files. Please explain.
Hi again. Have been trying to figure out why my imported image dimensions are always so much smaller than my canvas dimensions, even though they are set to the same numbers.... it even says in the status bar below that the image file is the same dimension as the canvas, but they clearly are not the same size. The image is Much smaller. And so Each one needs individually resized, for every import I do. And you know- when I resize them its a bit paranoid- what IF there is loss? Why am I resizing this, is that normal? Someone should know whats going on, I will need to ask.
Then I noticed this tonight:
When I Import my images (600 dpi .Tif files) there is the option for
that can be set to
"From file" or "Default import resolution"
Of course, I have been using "From File" because I imagine the Default Import resolution is either 90 dpi, 96 dpi, or something else that I cannot set myself (And do not need to. The image is damn high quality and I want it that way right? right.) So I choose "from file"...
And the image is imported at a weird dimension. Proper ratio, wrong W/H size. Resize it. Paranoia seeps in.
So just to check, I open the same .tif in a graphic editor, check its dimensions, all good, select all, and copy it.
Go to Inkscape, paste in place. Huge image appears. Exactly the size of my canvas, everything good. Looks great.
So I import the .tif again, but this time select "Default Import Resolution" and BANG! just like with the paste, the dimensions are now correct and match the canvas as I set it up to. No resize needed.
So. Am I missing something obvious to everyone else, or should these two options be switched?
Seems like the Default Import Resolution should Not change to accommodate each image, it should be a Default, maybe even customizable by users, or at least listed in the prefs? And the "From File" option should pull the dimensions from the file- just like multiple graphic editor programs are clearly doing already, and fine enough that Inkscape accepts their pastes perfectly.
Please elucidate, thanks!
Can you help with this problem?
