How do I take a high res canvas snapshot

Hi all,

I´m currently trying to take a high resolution canvas snapshot. I currently have a 2480 X 3508 canvas and when I save out a jpeg image from the snapshot the image quality is really low and all images are pixelated.

Has anyone got any ideas of how I could resolve this? Ideally I want something high enough res to print and have crisp, clean lines.

Thanks!

Mind sharing an example? Even a cropped area will do.

I don't really see what it's doing wrong. The image is about the same as my on screen display. As stated above, png will get you better results than a jpg but at the cost of a bigger file size.

Have you tried saving it as a png file?
Make sure you change the invoke download to "test_file.PNG", otherwise it will still save as a jpg.

Yea I tried PNG. Maybe I'm approaching this wrong then.

Is there a way I could get it to save the layout as some sort of image file at a resolution that's higher than the on screen diplay? I want it to be sharp enough to be printed out.

Maybe this isn't possible at all and I should do this in a totally different way :)
