  • moving photos on to a new background

    Hi, I am trying to move 2 greyscale photos onto one canvas/new background. When I try to do this the photos that I am moving appear on the new background as a lot smaller. The resolution is the same (72) in the photos and the new canvas. What am I doing wrong. I am using photoshop 6.........Thanks Val

    Hi Val:

    Greetings from "Across the Pond."

    In the bottom left corner of the "they look too small" image, check the zoom % value. Is it the same value as the source images? If not you can click in and over-type this value to whatever you like.

    See if this helps.

      Hi Danny,
      Thank you so much for replying to me, I have figured out what I was doing wrong, I needed to make sure that they were the same file size, not just the same measurements. Thank you again and I hope that you have a great new year.....Val

        I have photos taken by my Father in Japan '45 and '46. After seeing the cost of having them restored, I decided to learn how to do it myself. I work in photoshop cs, and have been at it a bit more than a year. What are my chances of making a REAL QUALITY restoration of photos such as this? I'm new...
