It would be useful to be able to render an output image file at any arbitrary resolution. The desired resolution would most often be the original resolution of a raster layer in the project. The feature should allow selection of arbitrary areas.

Currently, a selected area is output at screen resolution. This results in a poor quality image file if the selected area has a higher resolution than what will fit on the screen.

Is this still true?

Does the below do the job, assuming the cell size is 10 and the extent as specified?

qgis --snapshot --width 1000 --height 1000 --extent 0,0,100,100

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Print composer's "Export as image" should give you these possibilities as well.

Re-open if necessary
