  • Canvas/image size mismatch problem


    I did a slight crop around the edge of an image. Now the canvas is showing around the edge in the cropped away area. In image|resize, the image and canvas show as the same (new, cropped, correct) size. It's like PSE thinks they're the same size, but the canvas is definitely bigger visually. I can drag the image around inside the edged of the canvas with the move tool. If I resize the canvas slightly bigger, the image is ll of a sudden way way smaller than the canvas, as if it is not being recognized at the correct size. Anyone know what's happening? Thanks!

    My only guess is that when you selected the area to crop, you were outside of the image area. Photoshop will let you drag the crop boundries off of the image - which will then give you a "border" of the canvas, around the edge.

      Thanks Vikki

      I think that is what happened. Boy I wish undo's were still there after save and reopen a file! (or are they...)

        How to Shrink Canvas to Exact Edge of an Image?
        by RobertAsh
        Here's the idea:
        1. Use the Crop Tool to grow the canvas an arbitrary amount, say, a pixel or two.
        2. Now, since you don't know how much you grew the canvas, how can you get the canvas to shrink back to the exact edge of the image area like it was before you grew it (without using the History panel!

        How to crop an image without adding canvas
        by Gerald McClaren
        I've had a 4X6 photo that was enlarged to an 8X10. I had used photoshop and Bicubic Smoother to enlarge this photo. After the photo was enlarged, I cropped it to 8X10. I had noticed that I had to add some canvas to this photo to complete the enlargement to 8X10.
        I would like to know if there...

        Crop query
        by manfred
        Hello All,

        Another dumbo question I'm afraid.

        I used the elliptical selection tool to crop a person out of a photo.

        Now I'm left with an image which has about 2 cm. of white background to the right of my main image that I no longer need.

        I know I could...

        stretching inkjet canvas
        by bigkidjr
        Hi everyone. This is a basic question. Is it possible to stretch/mount inkjet printed canvas, and if so, does anyone know how it's done? i've been doing a lot of digital art but have no real experience in actual painting (by hand) on canvas, and so I'm not sure how the stretching part is done, or...

        Question about Resizing 8 x10 to other Print Sizes
        by rnbluvva
        I was wondering... I have an 8 x 10 crop of an image that I want to make into 5 x 7 and 4 x 6 prints as well. When I resize the image to make it a 5 x 7 using Photoshop there is some space left and I have to take the crop tool to crop out the extra bit. This causes some loss of the image. How do I fix...
