Paint Shop Pro-blems – Please Help!
I’ve spent three days trying to resolve the following.
Basically, I need to create an image with at least 400 dpi which is 181 mm by 55 mm in size.
When I do File > New and specify these dimensions, the canvas size created by Paint Shop Pro is FAR larger than 181 mm by 55 mm. When I do View > Normal Viewing (1:1) it is about five screen lengths wide!
When I reduce the number of pixels per centimetre/inch in File > New, the canvas size is correct.
Surely the resolution should not affect the canvas size of the image?
Anyway, the printers say I must have at least 400 dpi for the image as it is for offline printing.
Why is the canvas size coming out to far larger than I specify in File > New ? How do I get a correct canvas of the correct dimensions with a resolution of at least 400 dpi?
Any advice would be much appreciated. I’ve used Paint Shop Pro for years, but this issue is killing me…
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Are you sure you're using the correct unit scale.
I'm using PSP7 and I don't see the option for entering mm, only cm, so I entered 18.1 x 5.5 cm (which = 181mm x 55mm) 400dpi.
This gives an image which is about 75% of the screen with at 800x600.
Also, remember screen resolution is 72dpi (I think)
Hope this helps.
