I create a document 980px wide. I then go to safari and load a website which is boxed at 980 pixels wide. I Skitch the website boxed section (980px) and copy.

When I paste it into the photo 980px wide document in affinity photo the image is much wider than 980px?

You might want to check that you are viewing at 100% (top menu bar) - just a suggestion.

Hi Paulm


What DPI is your document set to? you may need to change it to something like 96DPI to match the DPI of the image taken from the website

Thanks for helping
The document is set to 100 percent and 96dpi.
I am using a Mac 27 inch with retina screen set to display at default resolution.
If I create a document 980px wide 96dpi and display it at 100 percent, the document looks considerably smaller than 980px on the web. A document created in photo with dimensions of 980px wide exported to a website displays at the correct width using safari set to display at actual size.
