Hi there!
I want to make some custom overlays and backgrounds and I would like to know what size I should use for a new page in paint.net to fit exactly on a picture taken in portrait mode.
Thank you!

    NOTE that size for Portrait style is
    1200px Wide X 1800px High at 300 DPI

    Other software uses a size that has a bleed over
    and if you ever use a purchased layout from one of them
    make sure you create a NEW layout using the 6X4 DNP size
    when you select the paper in the NEW layout screen.

    I figured out myself that the answer is 1200x1800 :) so that's why I thanked. I make my own work with pain.net as is in your tutorials, why purchase from others?
