Photo resolution

One fundamental difference between Xara and other photo tools is that when you resize a photo it retains the full resolution. Scaling an image to be smaller, just increases the dpi or ppi (pixels per inch). In other words no pixels are lost, they are just made smaller.

96ppi image on the left when scaled down to half size becomes twice the resolution, 192ppi.

The status line shows the resolution of any selected image. Retaining the full resolution is important because it means you can see all the detail when you zoom in, and that when printing the maximum resolution is sent to the printer. Also it means you can enlarge all or part of the image and Xara retains the original maximum quality.
