Info text / drag and drop to folders
« on: June 05, 2007, 01:56:58 PM »
Hi,

1. When in Preview I get this as H/W of the photo:
Size: 1869 x 1791
Resolution: 300 pixels/inch
Filesize: 3.4MB

Is it possible to have the H/W in cm?

------------------------

Is it not possible to drag and drop photos from desktop or other into a folder in PM. When trying to do this nothing happens. I can drop into the main window when the folder is selected but not in any other folders in the folder tree.

Did you set the "Resolution units:" preference to "pixels per cm" in the Files tab of the Preferences dialog?

It works for me.  I just dragged a file from a folder in the Finder to a folder in the Favorites pane.  It was copied immediately and appeared as an image in the Contact Sheet I was viewing.

Yes it is set that way. I would like to get this: Size: 1869 x 1791 to be 18.69 cm X 17.91 cm, is that possible at all?

The variables you're using are just pixel values.  To do what you want, we would have to add two new variables that would use the image's current DPI/CM and convert the width and height into the preferred units.

Hi,

I would like cm instead of pixels. Can I do that somehow?

No.  I need to add new variables for you.  Until then there is no solution that I can think of.

No promises, but probably.

I talked to Dennis about this and he reminded me that there are variables that already do this very thing:

{printsize}
{printsizecms}
{printsizeinches}

I think {printsizecms} will fit your needs well.
