tiled labels double in size?!
Hello gimpers,

I have a problem making labels. I designed a label (to be printed out on fabric), 5 x 5 cm, then tiled it to 20 x 20 cm (to be sent to a printing shop for a print proof), but every time, it comes out as 40 x 40 cm, with only 4 rows of 4 labels, which means that the label itself has doubled in size. I don't get it. What do I do wrong?

Thanks for your help!

RE: tiled labels double in size?!
Hey, Ofnuts, THANX! Changing the resolution worked perfectly well!

But speaking of dimensions, I have another question... As a newbie and as a European, I prefer centimeters to inches, and you can choose metric in gimp, but somehow I believe the program 'thinks' in inches... So even if I set the dimensions to 5 x 5 cm and 20 x 20 cm, what I get is 5,012 x 5, 012 cm and, for the tiled image, 19,998 x 19,998 cm. Now for the fabric I hope to design in the future, that won't be a problem, but for the labels, maybe it is. Is there a way to resolve this, or should I change to inches...?

Thanks again for your help!

Ok, Ofnuts, thanks for your explanation. Seems that I just have to get used to thinking in pixels!

Bye,
