GIMP :: Canvas Size In 2.8

Sep 6, 2012

HAving just installed 2.8 after using 2.6, I find all scanned images and existing jpeg files I created in 2.6 are displayed at ridiculously large dimensions. In 2.6, all scanned images were loaded on screen at their actual A4 size, regardless of scan resolution. In 2.8 they are loading up on screen at around 5 times the actual size - it seems I have to scale the image back down to A4 before I can start editing it? I tested this on A4 jpeg files I created on 2.6, and they also load on screen at massively enlarged sizes. how to get these images to display at their actual sizes?

GIMP :: Canvas Size Is Wrong On 2.8?

Sep 7, 2012

I'm having problems with gimp 2.8 I've just installed on my new laptop. I'm an artist and use scanned images to colour in GIMP, and in version 2.6 these were displayed with the actual canvas size (A4) and scan resolution. I work with these images and often need to increase the canvas size. In 2.8 the scanned images are displaying with a canvas size around 5 times larger than A4 - I think this is because GIMP is saying the resolution is 72ppi, whereas I scan at 300-400 ppi. My finished jpeg files all display on 2.8 at larger canvas sizes aswell. how to get GIMP to recognize this automatically so that the actual canvas size is shown?

GIMP :: Resize Canvas Size To Selection

Mar 16, 2011

I have to use the Image > Canvas Size option to resize the size of my canvas to a wanted size. However this means a lot of trial and error to get the canvas size the same size of my current selection. Is there a quick function that would resize the canvas size to my current selection?

GIMP :: Process To Convert Canvas Size On Many Images?

Jun 9, 2012

I have a folder of 50 images. The images are all different sizes and dimensions (ranging from about 400x600 to 1600x900).

Separately, I have a little design on a canvas in HD dimensions (1920x1080).

The end goal is just to be able to lay out all the photos on the center of the canvas as 50 new individual images (with the HD dimensions of the background canvas).

Obviously, to load in 50 unique images and then export each of them would take a long time. So I was hoping that there is a way to both (a) automatically combine multiple unique images to a common background, and then (b) export them all.

GIMP :: Print / Canvas Size - Picture Cut Off (4x6 Paper)

Dec 20, 2013

I used scale image to make a 2.314" x 3" image to print so it'll fit in a frame that I have for that same size. When I print it out the size looks great but it's over on the edge of the 4x6 paper and most of the picture is cut off. I tried, I should use print size and not canvas size but when I change the print size to 4x6 it also changes my canvas size back to 4x6. I still have my original so I can do this again but what I want is a 2.314"x3" image to print out on my 4x6 glossy paper.

GIMP :: Automate Canvas Size Change - Alpha Layer

Dec 26, 2013

Is it possible to automate the following: I have a directory of about 50 jpg files. With each file I would like to:

- make the image square, by increasing the canvas size of the least dimension. ie if the width is less than the height, increase the width to the value of the height, or conversely if the height is less than the width

- add a transparency layer

- save to xcf

GIMP :: Unable To Scale A Selection To Match Canvas Size

Mar 7, 2013

I'm trying to scale a pattern to fit the entire canvas without tiling it over the whole layer. To try to do this, I made a rectangular selection box, then dragged and dropped a pattern into the box. This created a new layer called "clipboard". I right clicked the clipboard layer, then left clicked "Scale Layer". Then I entered a width and height in pixels that matched the size of the canvas. The selection does expand, but it doesn't fill the entire canvas.

Photoshop :: Canvas Size Will Constrain Image Rather Than Cropping Canvas

Feb 23, 2012

I just got CS5.1 at my job. This must be a preference, but when I adjust the Canvas size, it will constrain the image, rather than cropping the canvas. The Anchor in the Canvas Size menu appears outlined (highlighted?) which indicates that this is something in preferences that I can adjust.

Photoshop :: Difference Between Canvas Size And Image Size?

Aug 28, 2013

1. How do I connect, collapse and disconnect windows (tool bar, property manager, etc.)? They get stuck together and I can't unstick them.  

2. What's the difference between canvas size and image size?  

3. Which tools are only for web design (i.e. tools I can ignore if I'm not doing that)?  

4. What's the subselection tool do?  

For Photoshop:  

1.Why is the original layer always locked?

2. Whats the name of the property inspector in PS? And is it called inspector or manager in FW?

Photoshop :: Canvas Size + Resolution= File Size?

May 14, 2003

Can someone please explain to me about file sizes and image dimensions. I have to put together a collage which is 165mm high by 258mm wide. If I click file new and choose default resolution (72) then the file size is ok, if I type in 300 dpi the image becomes huge.

If i chosse 300 dpi then the images I was going to use seem tiny on such a vast workspace - Im confused why does the canvas become so large when changing resolution?

Photoshop :: Image Size, Canvas Size...

Jul 19, 2009

I have a created a new PSD that is 8 1/2 x 11.The canvas size is the same 8 1/2 x 11.I want to put a border around the picture (say 1/2 of an inch all around), and put the finished picture in a Picture frame.  After it is in the frame, you would be able to see the entire picture plus the border.Q.  Should I change (reduce image size) of the PSD to (for this example), 8 x 10 1/2.      Then increase the canvas size to 8 1/2 x 11.  After I increased the canvas size, do a  Paint Bucket fill with white (to create the White border)?  then print the changed size PSD on 8 1/2 x 11 paper so that it will fit into a 8 1/2 x 11 picture frame I realize I could have just created the new PSD to be 8 x 10 1/2 in the first place.

Photoshop :: Canvas Size Bug

Feb 28, 2008

I was trying to add 5mm around the canvas, when i noticed something strange.

I changed the measurement to cm, then added 1cm to each, Height and Width, then changed the Width measurement to mm (which changed both displays to mm) but only one of the setting changed to mm; the height still had the same value it had when displayed in cm.

This only happens when both Height and Width are changed.

Photoshop :: Reducing Size Of Canvas

Sep 22, 2012

I have designed a billboard and used various photos. Due to changes in the positions of the layers, I ended up with a canvas bigger than the photo. So I need to remove the extra canvas. How do I remove the extra canvas?
I can use the marque tool to copy/cut and paste the photo unto a new file, and hence get rid of the extra canvas. If this is the way forward, is there a precise way to get the marquee tool to the edges of the photo? Is there a function to snap the marquee to the edge of the photo?

Paint Shop Pro :: Canvas Size On X4

Dec 13, 2011

I've been using PSP for a long time now (fisrtly PSP7 and now PSP9) and I wanted to buy the new version PSPX4. I downloaded the free-trial version and I saw that it is impossible to generate files bigger than 10'000x10'000 pixels. In the canvas size menu, it's impossible to give a higher number. The problem is that a made bigger files with PSP9 and I'd like to keep on working on it without resizing them.

So my question is : Is it only a limitation of the trial version or is it simply impossible to work with bigger images than 10k x 10k ? I hope there is a simple solution because PSP9 encounters some problems with Win7...

Photoshop :: Canvas Size Question

Jan 29, 2009

I have a strange problem when i send my photo i created with photoshop to a company to make a print.
In photoshop i create a canvas with the size of 20x30 (300ppi). I put some photo's on it so it fit almost the hole canvas. Than i have a little space for a nice border around it. Finished. Send it to a company and when i receive the photo i check the size of it. It is exactly 20x30, so that is not the problem.

The problem is that i now miss some peace of my border. So if i wanna keep the border i have to send a photo with a canvas size around 19x29.
