1.3 Creating New Images

Figure  1.11

Figure 1.11: Creating New Images
Figure 1.11

shows the New Image dialog.  This is invoked with the New  function, found in the Toolbox:File menu, or the Image:File menu, or by typing C-n in the Toolbox or image windows. The most important aspect of creating a new image is the specification of the Image Type, which can be RGB or Grayscale, and the image resolution.   The image resolution is set by entering values into the Resolution X and Y entry boxes. The default values are 72 pixels per inch, which corresponds, approximately, to your computer monitor's screen resolution. If the final version of your image is to be output to a high-resolution printer you should choose values corresponding to that output device's capabilities.
