I'd like to attempt to make an X-mas card in Gimp. My #1 question is, what do I use for the size?! That may be a silly question, but can I just measure a regular postcard and put those in via inches, or better to enter by pixels? Anything else I should know before attempting???

Thank you!

Measure the card and size your canvas in inches. Then you need to fix the quality, click on advanced options and change the x and y resolutions to 300,000. The canvas will look huge but it will print to the right size and a decent quality.
