SOLVED THIS thank you guys <3

ok bear with me im dumb with words!!

TLDR; finished image larger than what csp ON MAC shows me at 100% scale how do fix

so when i draw in sai or photoshop, when i click to view my canvas via the navigation window at 100% scale, it shows me my canvas at that scale - 100%. meaning i see it as how it would be posted online

but when i do this in csp, while on my mac, it shows me my canvas smaller than it would be?

csp on my mac:

csp on my pc:

i dont know if i am explaining this correctly, so if this is hard to understand let me know and i can try to find a different way to explain it

Seems like it could be your resolution. 72 dpi is default resolution for print/CMYK (dots per inch). So that preview is showing you what it would look like when printed on a standard printer. My thought would be to make sure it’s RGB/digital (ppi - pixels per inch) and a resolution that’s higher than 72?

i figured it out! for some reason, with a mac, csp operates with different...pixels or something? 100% is actually 50%, so to get a true 100% scale on your canvas in csp on a mac you would need to zoom to 200%

either that, or run it in lower resolution, which would allow you to truly see a 100% scale of your image in csp, but everything would be blurry
