Image is pasted too big

Post by ZoltanE » Wed 28 Nov 2018 10:35

In PhotoLine 20.53 if I paste an image copied to the clipboard from a different app then it ends up much bigger on paste. The layer is like 350% in scale. Is there a way to paste in original size?

The size of a pasted image depends on the mode of the document (visible in the Document Attributes panel) in which the image is to be inserted.
In picture mode (image processing mode) PhotoLine uses its pixel dimension and pastes the image with a scaling of 100%.
In document mode PhotoLine uses the DPI of the pasted image and inserts it with the correct physical size. This may result in a scaling.

There is no way to change that aside from recording an action that
- pastes from clipboard
- sets the scaling of the active layer to 100% (for example by using the Layer Attributes panel).
Then you could use that action for pasting.

Oh thanks, changing the document mode is easy enough!
