size of background layer?
when i make a new project it says what size you want it to be set on. i want it to be set on a standard size of printing paper. so i measured a printer paper and put in the details as millimeters in the box and set the size to 100 but when i hold up a paper to the screen its not the same size its much smaller. how would i make it actual size of the paper? (8.5x11) and if it does not print the actual size how could i make it so when i print it it does not make it bigger or smaller to fit on page or whatever. i know this is very basic but its been bugging me forever and i need it to print the exact size.

thanks! Smile

RE: size of background layer?
When you create the image, you have to set it to inches instead of mm, then it still might not appear right, due to the fact it has to be re-sized as that is a rather large size
