Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0
I would like someone familiar with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 to try to answer a question about resizing photos. When I go into quick or standard fix and bring up a photo that I want to resize, I go to the click on the Image icon, then resize. I then enter the pixel or dimentions that I want, this will then give me the desired resized photo. I then go to the File menu, click on Save As, enter the required info. Then when I want to exit, it shows the original photo being edited. At this point is where I have a problem, it will only save it as the original, not the new size.

Every other change that I can make, croping, eraser etc works, but not the resizing function. I have tried it with another picture, same thing. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?.

Thanks,.

Merrill..

.. the box labeled "Include in the Organizer," just below the pull-down menu for file type? Try unchecking that box, and see if anything changes..

One does not achieve success by being at the right place at the right time, but rather by being ready when the right place and time present themselves for your inspection...

Thanks Charlie for your help, but the only thing that changes when I deselect that box is that I lose the original. Everything works great up to the point that I have to exit the photo. The screen shows the photo resized, this is after I Save As and at this point I try to exit the photo, then it will show the old photo with the red line horizontal saying Editing Photo. When the edit is done I end up with the original photo. I know that I must be doing something wrong, but cannot figure it out. Can you go thru the steps that you would do when resizing a photo?.

Thanks,.

Can you say exactly what you do when you try to resize. Do you have the resample box ticked?.

Also, why are you resizing - to print, for e-mail, etc?Chris R..

Yes, I have the resample box checked. I usually want to move in on the photo, that is zoom closer to the subject. I bring the photo I want to resize on the screen and go to edit. I go to the Image icon and then to resize. I change the dimentions, either height, width, or pixels to get the desired resizing. The photo with then change, if I like want I see, I then go to File and Save As.

Now the photo still looks like I want it, and this is when I have a problem. When you exit, either by closing the photo at the X, or go to file and close, it with then show the old photo with the red horizontal line saying edit in process. When that is done, you end up with the old photo, and if you go into version sets, you will see the edited photo which ended up the same as the original. So for some reason the resizing did not take..

Chris, thanks for trying to help,.

I have PSE 3 rather than PSE 4, but I have tried to recreate what you did. The only difference is that I never get the "edit in progress" message that you get when you try to save it. (I also never use the organizer.).

If, with Resample ticked, I change one of the resize box dimensions downwards the number of pixels in the image reduces. When I click back to OK the displayed image shrinks because there are fewer pixels. If I save the file and reload it will increase in size because my default display is "Fit to Screen", but the image has the reduced number of pixels..

Are you saying that when you reload the file the number of pixels is the same as before you altered the size? If so this is very strange and you may have a software error related to the "edit in progress" message..

Do you get the same problem if you do further edits after resizing? Do you get the "edit in progress" message if you have done some other edits but haven't resized?Chris R..

Evidently I was resizing in the organizer, so I opend the edit window and did the same procedure as before, and I did not see the Edit in Process. Once I saved the resizing I went back into the new photo and the pixels etc did change. The only problem is the edited picture look the same as the original. If you then go into the version set and compare, there is no difference. Would it make any difference if you took the picture in the 16:9 aspect and not the 4:3?..

"I usually want to move in on the photo, that is zoom closer to the subject.".

Sounds like you want to CROP the photo to get closer to a particular area (face, building, animal, etc,,,)...

I wouldn't expect to be able to see any difference unless you resize downwards drastically or view the two images at full size (when the "full" sizes will be different.).

Would it make any difference ifyou took the picture in the 16:9 aspect and not the 4:3?.

I cannot think why there should be any difference. Taking in 16:9 ratio simply crops in the camera rather than on the computer.Chris R..
