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...

lightning: That is good advice but I still wish I could create faster to get all ideas out of my head in time :-)

Papercraft Warrior: The trick is, only projects you should start, are those that you can finish in reasonable time... all others get stuck in their own personal hell.

Coyotepunc: Hopefully tonight I will get some pictures up of Striders with tentacles and my kitbashed 1940s Manchurian building. Hopefully. I might just go to bed.

mproteau: 2 of 3 pages of the Local Heroes minis are done! I'm working on some 6" cave walls right now, kinda flip-flopping between the two tasks. Should have the set's cutfiles done tonight, though.

mproteau: Finally! A little success on my cave walls. I like what happened on my desk this morning, and it led me to a few more ideas. Time to work on the grids for the tiles..

mproteau: Good lord I hope I get better at what I'm doing, 'cause it isn't all that good right now! Time to pick up another pack of cardstock to feed to the cutter... lots of failed test builds...
