Ok turns out that the 'Hardness' setting of 1 was the problem... I thought that hardness would affect antialiasing of the edge of the brush, and that a one pixel brush would need to have a hard edge or it would be invisible. It seems that the edge is not within the brush width, but around it, so that a one pixel brush with an edge is three pixels wide ...

As of GIMP 2.8, the way to paint with a 1 pixel brush using the pencil tool is setting the brush size to "1" in the Pencil tool options, when painting, regardless of Brush's shape or native size. In previous GIMP versions, the "pixel" Brush which was an image one pixel in size was available in the UI. It is currently hidden, and available only for scripts ...

Pixel is the smallest form to display design for a display unit. Ex: An Display monitor consists of several pixels which form a display on your screen.

A pixel is the smallest point in an image. It has no physical size. It gets one when you specify the resolution in DPI (dots per inch) or similar unit, and render it on a device that honors this resolution. In practice, there are many occasions when the size is arbitrary because the designer or software didn't care/didn't know about display size/resolution, ...

Pixels in CSS (and not as a technical property of a display medium) are units of apparent angular width. So it is possible to convert pixels, but only to degrees, radians, etc. You can convert a pixel to an inch, but you need to know how far away the inch is. Sean B. Palmer has a nice page on this: The moon from earth is about 24.3px wide, for example. ...

There are already a bunch of helpful answers, but I wanted to maybe explain this a different way. By requesting a 1900x1200 pixel image, your client isn't actually telling you anything about the dimensions they need. Forgetting about the word "pixels" for a moment, the client is simply telling you how much detail they need (ie. the resolution). They may ...

TL;DR Do the conversion when you export your Corel Draw image to a .tif file. There are two ways to describe an image on a computer: bitmaps (also known as rasters) and vectors. A bitmap is a grid of coordinates that each have a specific colour, and each point is a pixel. The combination of all the points in the grid creates an image. Photos are bitmaps; ...

Imagine you have a light bulb that you can switch on and off. This is basically a 1x1 pixel display, where the light bulb is the pixel. Now buy a few more light bulbs and arrange them in a square 10x10 fashion. If you wire them in a way that you can switch each one of them on and off as you wish, you have a crude display with 10x10 "pixels". You can even ...

There is a computer science paper (really, fun memo) titled, "A pixel is not a little square" by Alvoy Ray Smith. A pixel is a point sample. It exists only at a point. For a color picture, a pixel might actually contain three samples, one for each primary color contributing to the picture at the sampling point. We can still think of this as a point ...

One more confusion to complete the discussion: In website design and layout, one "CSS pixel" is always equal to 1/96th of a "CSS inch", regardless of screen resolution. This was done because so many early websites used pixel-based measurements for layout assumed a standard screen resolution. In order that the actual size of text and other content ...

The term "pixel" is short for "picture element". An image has consists of pixels, which are just colored dots in a rectangle, with no size. To show the image, we use a screen that can show colored dots, and need to decide which dots we want to show where. Looking at the details, the image consists of separate dots, each with a separate color. Like when ...

If a client of mine asked for a 1920x1080px image, the first thing I need to know the intended use. Is it for the web, print, or both? In the print world, a pixel (or picture element - [pict-el]) has no meaning or definition. Pixels can not be measured in any way. They have no predefined size or unit in order to calculate their size. Therefore are not a ...

A pixel has no correlation to real world measurements. As such, there is no way to convert inches to pixels in any consistent way. It's all arbitrary and dependent on what you're doing to do with the image int he end. What is a pixel in the context of a digital image? It's the smallest unique element within the image. It will have a color assigned to it. ...

Inches are physical dimensions while pixels are screen dimensions. At the same resolution, a pixel is physically bigger on a larger screen, as the density or PPI (pixels per inch) is controlled by the screens physical size vs resolution. So when converting pixels to inches, it all comes down to what you want your pixels per inch (PPI) to be. If you want ...

Just think of pixel like Atom, Atom is a smallest particle of matter. Where as Pixel is a smallest particle of Digital Image. Atom has Neutron, Proton & Electron where as Pixel has Red, Green & Blue values :) Number of pixels per Inches or CM etc... is called the Resolution Higher Resolution means More pixels per unit of length like. If you are ...
