    Default Gimp size confusion

    If I create a image in Gimp using the dimensions for paper size A6. I will be using it Landscape, but that's not important. The dimensions are
    148 x 105 mm

    Now check your view is 100% and check the actual dimensions. It doesn't seem to add up to me.

    And if you create a New Image from Template > A6
    Check the difference when viewed 100% size

    Or am I just mixed up about something

    You might have to set something up for DPI in your settings in GIMP. Edit-
    >Preferences->Display is where I found the configuration.

    It fine here. if opening a new template like what you said below

    And if you create a New Image from Template > A6
    Check the difference when viewed 100% size
    It opens as portrait (104.99x148.51), just rotate it 90 degrees.

    Edit

    I checked both sizes that you mentioned at 100 percent and it seems to be right here by looking at the numeric on the side of the image
