    Arrow Free LScript: DPI Camera (Updated)

    Just put the finished touches to an LScript originally written by Eki Halkka.

    Changes and updates:

    - Added many more templates (US, ANSI, Arch and Photo) to the original ISO 'A series'

    - Updated the 'Bleed' setting to respect the selected document units (it was always pixels before)

    - GUI now has some basic 'intelligence', e.g. when a template is selected the width / height and units of the preset are reflected in the UI

    (Note: When a template is selected, the UI won't allow you to change the document units to something other than the presets default, this was done to avoid confusion, I may change this if it annoys everyone!)

    - Better feedback

    Although I've tested the script, please report any bugs.

    Hope you find it useful!

    Cheers
    Matt

    great stuff matt. simple but very usefull.
    It spares us the time to open photoshop, select paper format, insert dpis and then insert the pixel dimensions in lightwave.

    That's very cool Matt. I'm sure this will help a ton of people!! Cheers!

    Not a big deal but file resolution is actually PPI not DPI. DPI is really reserved for output devices like a printer, and PPI is reserved for files that are made up of pixels. That's why when you create a new file in Photoshop is asks for the PPI (or PPC) of the image, not DPI. Most people mixed them up anyway...

    I did think of calling it that, as Pixels Per Inch is as you rightly say, more correct. But I kept it DPI as most people still refer it to it as that (incorrectly). So if anyone did a search they would find it!
