Hello there, I have an NSImage I create at run time of an image (http://catsdorule.torpedobird.com/img/blogpix/husky.jpg) all my code works except for one small problem. The Size of the NSImage is different then the actual image, running NSLog(@”%f”,[backgroundImage size].width); shows that the width is 245.759995 when infact it is 1024.
Is there any way to fix this or to get the actual size so I can set it manually?
That is the actual size. What’s going on is that the image has a high resolution set: 300DPI both ways. This means that a single image pixel doesn’t match up with a single screen pixel.
If you want the number of pixels rather than the actual size, get the NSBitmapImageRep inside the NSImage and then use its -pixelsWide and - pixelsHigh methods.
Thank you, that worked.
Gentlemen how should one actually change an image’s size: make it 400px or 512px along the long side? pete
Use -[NSImage setSize:newSize]; EnglaBenny Don’t forget setScalesIfResized.
