Image size in CM

Post by Arturas » Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:32 pm

The program shows a picture Print size in cm. Very good.

But in the table "Create Contact Sheet" is the only Image Width (inch) and Height (inch).
In the table "Print / Caption / Insert" is the only Image Width (inch) and Height (inch).

It is very necessary for the Width (cm) Height (cm).

Excuse me for my English :)

Hello Arturas,

did you deactivate Use inch for print size (instead of cm) in Tools » Options... » Browser » File List » Misc. » Details view?

Hello XnTriq,

Details view / Use inch for print size (instead of cm) -- This check box is not checked.
I can not get on my computer Width (cm) and Height (cm).

There are Pixel, not Inch.

I'd like to request that print sizes in cm be made available as variables for fullscreen info, thumbnail labels & tooltips, as well as contact sheets and web pages.

And maybe we should think about one common setting for everything?

I work for the newspaper stands.
My people need to know what is the image size in cm, when the image resolution is 300 dpi.
XnView screen shows image size in cm, but not printed on paper. Prints only the image size in inches.

» File List » Misc. » Details view » Use inch for print size (instead of cm) --> Does not work in Contact sheets or Print table.

XnView - The best program we use. To print on paper image size in cm, we use PageMaker or InDesign, but this is very expensive.

I do not know how well I understand what you say (a school learned the French language, but not learned, but have to communicate in English, who do not know) :shock: .
