    Ideal canvas size for printing A4 image for framing?

    Hello all.
    What is the ideal canvas size for printing A4 image for framing?
    I plan on doing a series of detailed watercolors for friends and family (back in lockdown so want to make most of my free time).
    I will be using Artrage ios.

    Hello and welcome again.

    In the desktop AR some canvas presets are already installed. A4 landscape is 3508x2480 and portrait is 3508x4961 both at 300px/inch.
    Hope this helps.
    Sorry hear about your lockdown - here in South Australia life is almost normal - just distancing and washing hands. We have just opened borders with all States except Victoria.
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    When it comes to printing digital work the key thing is the number of pixels in the image verses the intended print size.
    For images to be viewed close up, which would be likely with A4, like June says I would want my painting to be at least 2480px x 3508px in size.
    However I believe at the moment the current iOS version of AR has a max canvas size limit of 2048px x 2048px.
    While this is perhaps somewhat under what I would want for an A4 print, it’s not a huge amount under. So you might still get acceptable results. Worth trying perhaps.
    Or consider printing at A5.

    See these two pages for more about printing and things to consider:

    Many thanks Enug.
    We have not long been out of lockdown but due to a number of spikes we are unfortunately back in lockdown.
    This time however I have my new iPad Pro, which has just arrived only 2 days ago. At least now I can take my time experimenting with ArtRage until I work out what does what.
