So, I'm messing around with Manga Studio (Debut) 4, and I'm having a problem. Anything I import is really small. Too small. So then I tell the dan program to get the picture to fit the page. Of course, this leaves the image wa distorted. How can I stop this? Note, this is importing from Paint. Not importing from my scanner.

My guess is that what you're trying to import is at a much lower resolution than your Manga Studio page, and so when you import it, it imports it in at that size,which is gonna be pretty small compared to your page.

Paint is a raster-based drawing program (as opposed to Sai or Flash or Inkscape, which are vector-based) and thus exports everything in raster formats. Raster formats cannot be upscaled perfectly. All you can do is make the pixels bigger, and that's always going to look distorted.

So, either draw your stuff really, really big, or trace over it in a vector format that can be resized.

So, would importing from my scanner help? What you said make it sound like it would?

When you scan something you probably do it at 300dpi or more, that's dense enough to look well if you print it even. I don't know what resolution paint uses as standard, but I bet it's not higher than 72-the standard of screen wiewing. So importing scans would give good results, or if you want to use paint try too change the document preferences or create a huge canvas...

@Bacon: Are you scanning something into Paint and then loading into MS, then? If so, you can adjust the DPI Paint scans at by clicking on 'Adjust the quality of the scanned-in image' in the From Scanner or Camera dialogue - try setting it higher and re-importing.

Also, it looks like Paint's standard DPI is 96... don't see how to change it anywhere.
