    Smartwatch Faces 11th Aug 18 at 12:27 PM
    As I think I mentioned before, I had a Diggro Di06 smartwatch for my birthday. I've just got into creating my own watch faces. A lot of it is copying existing apects of watch faces, and editing them. One thing I have trouble with is the sizing of letters and numbers. Since all letters and numbers, are stored as .png files, they are not easy to edit. I know it can be done in a graphics editor, but I wondered if anyone has ever done this, and knows a better way than just trial and error. I'm working on one watch face, and the Day font, is coming out larger than the date, so again I'm guessing on the size of the .png file.

    Thanks. I have joined the forum, but can't see many threads for my type of watch.

    Why are the PNG files not easy to edit? Almost any paint program will edit PNG files.

    What are the width/height dimensions of the opened file in pixels and
    how many pixels per inch?
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    Probably didn't make that clear. I can edit PNG files, but if I wanted to start from scratch, without copying, you can't tell from existing PNG files, what size font was used. It seems the only way, is to copy other peoples, and adapt them. A work around, rather that solve the problem.
