Info - add Image Y DPI tag

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.6.1 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Info - Image X/Y DPI tag
unfortunately its not possible to get Y DPI for Image as existing {DPI} tag shows only X value


Suggestion

Perhaps {DPI} can show 1 value when equal, and the 2 values when different?

tbh, I'm not a fan of hidden logic/magic behaviour
when you expect single value, eg 72 and get 72x144 as a result it is a bit strange
  • A - min changes
    - change DPI to show 1 value - min or max of X Y. Not sure how practical it is.. guess not much
    - add DPI-X
    - add DPI-Y
  • B - max changes
    as analogy to {EXIF:X-Res} / {EXIF:Y-Res}*
    - rename DPI to DPI-X
    - add DPI-Y

* I would also rename ..-Res to Res-.. (guess it was influenced by exiftools' XResolution/YResolution), but,
imo, for all commands/terms its better to go from big-to-small, from general-to-detail

Where is this displayed?

Image > Set DPI... displays X and Y values and that is necessary, in particular for the rare case of editing values when they are, or required to be, different.

Image > Properties... in v1.6.4 shows DPI 72 x 72 which seems fine to me as it is, no obvious reason to change.

Are you discussing another displayed value?
