  • How to change Default image size in PS Elements12

    Hi, when I scan a JPEG image into Elements 12, the file size is 8 wide inches x 24 high inches which is much too large to send be as an email attachment so my question is, how do I reset the default size of the a JPEG image that I scanned into PS Elements 12?

    Thank you

    It has nothing to do with PS. Read your scanner instruction. If you want to resize go to Image-resize

      Thank you Tulack, I'll check out the settings on my Brother MFC-7460DN Multi-Function All-In-One printer.

        • After scanning the file save it as JPEG.
        • Open the scanned image in PS (File-->Open menu)
        • Go to Image menu -- >Image size (Adjust the document size as per the need)
        • After resize, go to File menu-- > Save for web option(Select JPEG) and reduce the quality

          Image Size

          What ho one and all,

          I'm working on some tiff images, the originals being NEF files. They are saved as approx. 5000 x 3400 pixels (A3) and the file size is listed as 99.6mb. That is usually how I like things.

          But these images take forever to load, and even longer to...

          How to size things in Photoshop?
          by sirrduke2010
          I used to think it was easy to size in Photoshop and then I discovered that the images I resized in Photoshop weren't the size I sized them for. In other words I resized an image to 100 kb only to find out that the image was 10kb after the sizing. Checking the size of an image in Photoshop for me...
