Hi all,

I have a question in regard to how Pixelmator Pro exports PDF's and JPG's

I have a project with following canvas size 1729px x 4407px @ 300dpi

When I export to PDF the file size states it is 415 x 1058 and when I export to JPG the file size states it is 1729 x 4407 (see screenshot)

Why is the PDF not exporting to the correct pixel size. This project will be printed onto a 1500mm x 610mm banner so I want it to be the correct pixel size and dpi.

Can anyone help me please.

Hey Scott, could you try opening the PDF back in Pixelmator Pro and let me know what size you see when you choose Image > Image Size?
