Mike,
Would it be possible to show the PTF image pixel size in the PTF dialogue when the page size and resolution are entered? I know this is shown when you "print" and save the image but it would be nice to get an earlier indication of this.

Terry,
Curious what you are looking to see.
I open P2F and I see the rez (200 ppi, my setting) and the size of the print (8 x 10 my setting).
10 x 200 = 2000 x 8 x 200 =1600.
Just curious!! You know. I usually don't get the question right even though I know the answer.  Cry

Fred,
Because I use metric units, it's more difficult (calculator needed) to set the dimensions and resolution to get a specific pixel size.
Just looking to make this process easier at the initial stage rather than having to check in the print-save dialogue where the pixel size is given.
Edit: just to be clear I want to see 680x480 pixels, or whatever the page size & resolution result in.

Terry,
Don't you think it's time you learned English units like inches and yards and miles.?  Smiley

I can actually use both but for a simple soul like me, whole numbers of mm are easier than 3 decimal places in inches.
British Thermal Units are my favourites, useful in a cold Winter.

BTW you got it wrong,  Shocked it's mm please, M is for metres = 39.370079 inches

Just to add why I was prompted to ask this - someone the Yahoo forum asked about floating text on e-mail copies
To achieve this, you have to use Print To File so to make it a little easier to size the PTF e-mail copy, a readout of the image pixel size on the PTF dialogue would be a help.
