I'm a web developer who occasionally does design work, though I'm trying to accomplish something else today.
I'm laying out a room and want to be able to create to-scale pieces of furniture. The room itself is 200" x 150".
Currently, I've made a document that I consider a "workable", 5x proportional size - 1000px x 750px. Each time I create a piece of furniture, I have to multiply the dimensions by 5 to keep proportion. That being said, you can imagine when converting multiple dimensions for dozens and dozens of pieces of furniture, it becomes a time-consuming process.
The simplest solution would be to just create a 200unit x 150unit document, that way no conversion needs to be made. But, replacing that "unit" with
points either creates documents too small to work with, or too large to work with. Of course, zooming is an option, but then you run into scaling issues.
Is there a way to define my own scale? Or perhaps manipulate DPI so that a 50x50 square in Photoshop appears more like 200px x 200px?
I'm looking for a solution that only has to work on my monitor, not paper - this will not be printed. Using Photoshop CC if it matters.
Thanks in advance.
