My map file is approximately one pixel = 10 meters.

I want to keep that relationship when I export the map as an image.

So I want to export it with original resolution.

How do I achieve that in QGIS 3.2.3?

  • Isn't map composer actually print composer, which takes you back to grappling with dpi's and page sizes? I've imported a GeoTIFF to Qgis, now I want to export it. The print composer launches into talking about adding legends, borders, titles, etc. Having heard Qgis was the go to GIS tool, I was expecting it to be able manipulate GeoTIFF creation. Are you saying that Qgis has no GeoTIFF export? – MapperMike Feb 7 at 20:59

Use the map composer, set the necessary size for your canvas, add a map-element and let it display anything your map will have to contain. Then export it as an image.

  • Just a small extension of @Erik answer, when you export a map as a raster in QGIS, you are able to choose the resolution/quality (dpi) which you require. – Taras Sep 21 '18 at 7:44
  • "Let it display anything your map will have to contain" How do I do that? – vvaris Sep 21 '18 at 7:56
  • By turning it on and refreshing the map --> docs.qgis.org/2.8/en/docs/training_manual/map_composer/… – Erik Sep 21 '18 at 8:50
