1.93: Always uses 72 DPI for calculating print size

Post by ilgaspa » Sun Mar 16, 2008 10:58 am

I noticed that, regardless of dpi set in the picture, xnview always display 72 dpi in browser "Details" and "Thumbnails + Details" view. It also always uses 72 as the DPI value for calculating print size. Opening the image in the viewer and choosing "print size" from the Image menu displays the correct value of 300 instead

Could you send me or post a sample?

I noticed now that in 1.93 the problem seems partly solved: try opening the linked image. The print size is now correctly calculated with a dpi value of 300, but if you switch to "Thumbnails and Details" mode, in the properties column the dpi value shown is 72x72

Are you sure you downloaded the original picture (there's a link on the right side of the page, something like "Download Photo") and not the reduced version? If you right click the picture and choose "Save picture as" you'll download the dynamically resized version, wich has no metadata. You must click on "Download photo" link on the right hand side of the page... sorry, I should have told that in my previous post :( If you prefer I can send it to you via email, just tell me the address :)

Yes; I sent it yesterday, at 15.13 GMT+1, with the same name as the thread as subject (1.93: Always uses 72 DPI for calculating print size). Should I send it again?
