Okay, up front, I'm letting you know what I'm using. I'm on a Chromebook and I'm using the native picture editor that comes with the laptop. I want to resize one of the miniatures that come from Scarecrow's Miniature Maker. All it gives me for resizing is the pixel counts. In order to get it to 35mm to be used with the other figures released on this forum, what pixel size would I have to make it?

We seem to have opposite prblems! I found most of the figures from this site andones I've bought from several of the artists here print, without modification, to about 35 mm - I thought it was my laptop/OS/printer combination. I prefer my figures to be 28 to 30 mm and so, when printing, set the scaling to about 80%.
When you click Print, befor clicking OK, look through the print options/settings for one called Scaling. Play around with the print quality set to B&W draft (so you don't waste too much ink), until you get the right scaling. That's what I do.
Just for the record, both Adobe reader and Foxit have the facility to measure the "size" of anything in a PDF file. This assumes you are printing at 100%. It is then simple to apply a factor to get the desired result.
They do? I mean..., yes, of course they do! Perhaps you could let those sad, lonely individuals who DIDN't know exactly where to find this basic and totally normal function that we all know about already.., asking for a friend...

mproteau: I can now access my models! I think it was just waiting for me to return to work... Sketchup didn't want me wasting any of my vacation time, but my WORK time is a whole other story.

mproteau: Ugh. Just got back from vacation, refreshed and ready to make progress. I go to load my sketchup reference model (which I had done at work, so I used the online sketchup version) and... "Sorry, we seem to be having problems looking up your models."

squirmydad: I disabled the PostImage button and found a cute workaround for the broken images, things should be okay again.

squirmydad: New "Add Image" button added, not Postimage, some place called imgbb, seems to work, go try to break it while we wait on postimage to get their act together.

Vermin King: don't freak out about the edits... just cc'ing the org's

Vermin King: Well, changing 'postimage.org' to 'postimage.cc' allows an image to show (I was wondering if the codes migrated, and it works). There isn't a way to do something in the forum code making that switch forum-wide is there?

Vermin King: I wonder why postimg.cc is working and postimg.org isn't. Why wouldn't they work off the same platform, unless they changed their user agreement...

lightning: With all the problems with the new Win10 update (pics on the forum and photoshop) I really wonder how a) MS tests their updates and b) how application developers program these days that an update can have these effects?!?

cowboyleland: I am currently in the process of recovering from the latest update. I have to wonder how much productivity the averaged windows update sucks out of the world. I have no news on Tomoko coreyhaim8mydog
