Print-out size-problem
« on: July 12, 2006, 06:47:08 AM »
- i take an screen shot (300x300dpi) with v2.18.03
- i crop it
- i have a 100% preview

- i wanna print this shot

- but the size of the picture are either to small (normal)
or to big (fit to side)
or i must set the size my self to get an reasonable print out.

Do i smtg wrong ?
How can i get an reasonable print out without tweeking the settings?

abterix we miss seeing more of you here :)

ok can you explain a bit more about what you mean about a reasonable print?

so the print modes of norma, stetch, fit are not satisfactory -> what would you like instead?

maybe this hint will be useful:
use mode "fit to page"
and set larger margins (top panel).

a reasonable print? - yeah i don't know how to explain.

Maybe smtg like
"if the screen shot width and height is the half of the SC screen (maximized)
then the 'normal' print out should use the half of the paper too".

i.e. the 'normal' print out should print in a size as the 100% screenshot preview is big.
(If the screenshot is bigger than the SC screen, than 'autofit' it and print this on an paper)
{just an another idea is to print larger shots on two papers, but that's an other story}

I know there is dpi and resolution, DIN A4 and letter too, i have no glue how to code this.

wrt your hint... 'cus of the small print preview i don't see if the quality is good enough.


Is this understandable?
