Portrait and Landscape question
Hi all,.

Probably a silly question, but when I take a portrait picture of someone, when I load it into Photoshop and look at it (sideways) it looks ok, but then when I rotate it, the picture seems to get squished and makes the person look wider and less long (puts weight on them). Am I rotating this incorrectly or is there another way to do this?.

Hope you get what I'm trying to say. .

Ive tried changing the pixel ratio but this does not seem to save when I close the picture..

Many thanks for any help...

Hard to say without seeing what's going on, but my guesstimation is you are using a LCD screen at a resolution different from it's native one..

Does it check?.

I think that's a good guess. I noticed the same thing when I changed the resolution on my screen. The max resolution is 1280 x 1024 (ratio 1.25:1), but my wife likes it set at 1024 x 768 - at which the aspect ratio is 1.33:1, so a picture will be slightly elongated in one direction by about 6% (1.33 / 1.25)..

Best wishes.

Mike..

Use any program to draw a square on your screen. Then see if it appears as a square. It will vary with the screen setting you select in your control panel monitor setup. Pick a screen resolution that makes the square appear as a square..

Also, be careful since some programs Like PSCS3 (edit/pixel aspect ratio menu option) also offer options on aspect ratios...

Do yourself a favour. Use a LCD display ONLY at it's native resolution. Not only you will avoid these kind of problems, but it will look the way it's suppose to be, sharpness-wise..

If the details are too small, increase the text and icon size in your operating system..

It's a bit silly to do photographical work, but use the display at a non-native resolution..

Will post back if this works, many thanks...
