[Solved] Can't figure out required dimensions!

Postby AnimeOtakuDrew » Thu Feb 01, 2018 2:43 am

I'm trying to create a simple banner to use for Channel Art on my YouTube channel. I wanted to use the same thing I have on my Twitter, but YouTube promptly pointed out that the artwork is not the right size. It then proceeded to tell me that the recommended size for Channel Art is 2560 x 1440 pixels. The trouble is that I have no idea what that equates to in real measurements, or how to make OpenOffice show the pixel dimensions. I tried searching this forum, but couldn't understand the hits that came up (not even enough to tell if they were relevant to what I'm trying to find out). I've been using OpenOffice for writing for a few years, but I haven't done much which the Draw program, so I don't know the finer points. I'm also not really in the know when it comes to current tech jargon, so if any responses could be worded plainly, it would be much appreciated. Thank you all so much for your time and any assistance you may be able to provide!

Using this converting tool https://everythingfonts.com/font/tools/units/px-to-inches I come to the result:

2560 pixels = 26.666667 inches

1440 pixels = 15 inches

So drawing a box, just a bit smaller than, of 26 x 15 inches would give you an impression of the size in Draw.

You will probably have to put the page in Landscape to let the 26 inch fit.

You can set the ruler at the top of Draw to inches by right clicking on it and choose for Inch
