Photoshop :: Should One Change The Resolution Of The Preview Photo?

Jul 28, 2009

I use PS 7 and learning fast.

The default resolution when I open a photo, is set on 72 pixels per inch. This produces a photo with not a lot of detail and my previews are not the same as the end result. I have read somewhere that it is better to work on 300 dpi. Is this correct?

And if so, how do I change the default setting?

Or should one always work on 72 and occasionally change to 200-300 dpi?

GIMP :: How To Edit High Resolution Photo

Mar 14, 2013

I recently re-installed Gimp onto my MacBook Pro after doing a clean install I was hesitant because I did not want to install X11 again. So now that Gimp is Mac native I am happily working with it again. My problem is that every time I try to edit a high resolution photo that I have taken with my Canon Rebel T3i Gimp crashes.

My MacBook specs are:

2.7 GHz i7
16GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
OS X 10.8.3 (12D78)

Lightroom :: How To Change Resolution When Exporting A Photo To Facebook

Mar 6, 2013

Is it possible to change the resolution when exporting a photo to Facebook using either the regular plugin or Jeffrey Friedl's plugin?  I can't seem to do it; I only have control over the image dimensions, not the resolution and the dimensions, as you can see in the screen shots below:

I have control over both when I export to my hard drive (or a flash drive, etc.), as you can see below:

I can't find the option to control the resolution when I try to export to Facebook.  Before I got Lightroom 4, I would create whole new low-resolution files of images I wanted to post online using Photoshop.  The image size settings I would use are a longest edge of 10 inches at 72ppi, and I would like to continue doing this.  If I can only set the longest side to 720 pixels (I can't even seem to set the longest edge to an inches value - I can only choose a pixels value) and not change the resolution from 300ppi to 72ppi, then my photos' longest edge will only be less than 3 inches long (right?).  Thus, I really want to be able to upload low-resolution photos to Facebook via Lightroom with the ability to change both the resolution and the image dimensions. How to do it without having to export to my hard drive first?

GIMP :: Change Resolution After XCF Started?

Jul 19, 2012

So I started a new xcf, but I forgot to change the resolution from 72, to 300.....

Is it too late? Is there anyway to change the resolution now?

Considering just copying and pasting all the layers into a new xcf.... it's mostly text boxes, will the old resolution affect this process?

GIMP :: Change Resolution And Print Size?

Aug 18, 2013

Just recently moved to Gimp. I like it but I am struggling. Millions of questions, but to start: How can I alter the resolution of and image without changing its physical size. I am trying to keep to a print size of 7x5", and reduce the resolution to 300pixel/inch. When I go to: 'set image print resolution' and change the X and Y resolution, the 'Print Size' changes with it. I have tried everything I can think of. I have make a new file at the correct resolution and pasted the image in, but the colors in the photos changed, so I dumped that idea.

Photoshop :: Can Change Resolution Of Photo Without Losing Quality For Retina Ready Photos

Sep 4, 2013

I would like to prepare some photos for Retina display screens (not for printing) and was told that in order to do this, I need to increase the resolution of my images from 72dpi to 240dpi.
Many of my original photos are 3000 x 1875 pixel size at 72dpi resolution. What I wanted to know is that if I uncheck 'resample image' in the 'image size' dialogue box and increase the resolution from 72dpi to 240dpi, will my image suddenly be Retina ready without ANY loss of quality?
I find it hard to get my head around the fact that you can simply raise the resolution of an image in this way with no adverse affect to the quality.

VideoStudio :: Custom Resolution Profile And Aspect Ratio

Oct 25, 2013

I have used X4 for about two years and X6 for the past couple of months. I cannot figure out how the create more rendering options under Share -> Create Video File. For example, if I want to use the MPEG codec but a custom resolution. Often custom is greyed out and not selectable. In free software such as ffmpeg or Virtual Dub I can create video as any resolution, aspect ratio, or codec. VS options seem to be very limited to these prepackaged choices. For example, some people have described moving a .DLL to the Coral folder to get custom codecs under the Create Video -> custom option. I'd rather not have to always render in VS and then recodec in another software.

My biggest challenge is the new Instagram format. It is basically 640x640 webm format. But I can import MPEG h264 without issue. My goal is to setup a 1:1 640x640 profile so I don't always have to game and stretch titles to display properly in the final version.

Photoshop Elements :: Resolution When Images Are Cropped To Preset Aspect Ratio

Mar 12, 2014

When an image is cropped using the cropping tool to a preset aspect ratio (without specifying a resolution), the resolution of the cropped image is different than the original. I'd like to be able to understand exactly how this new resolution is determined and be able to calculate it myself. The help section of the software just says, "If you use a preset size, the resolution changes to fit the preset." But I'd like to know the details of how the resolution changes.
How the resolution of the cropped image is determined in Photoshop Elements?

GIMP :: Change Red And Black Car Photo To White Car?

Jan 4, 2012

What I am trying to do is change a photo of a bright red abd dark black car to a white car.

In all cases what I seem to be running into is the fact that the programs use the existing colour as the start point and allow only so much variation from that colour (ie about 180 +/- in each primary colour) which does not get me to where |I need to be.

I also tried creating a new layer and filling it with the desired colour then changing the layer from normal to hue. The result ends up being a mix of the original colour and the new colour so for instance if I want a yellow over a blue original colour I end up with some variation of green.

Photoshop :: Aspect Ratio Change?

Jul 11, 2007

I just joined and I'm a complete newbie at Photoshop, though I'm fairly interested in it.

I was wondering if it's possible to change the aspect ratio of a 5:4 (1600x1200) image to 16:10 (1680x1050) without stretching the image or contorting it.

I've tried resizing, but all that does is screw up the image and/or make it look all crappy.

Photoshop :: Aspect Ratio Change

Jan 15, 2004

New digi-camcorder records at 16:9 (I have a w/s TV. I need to incorporate many stills. All stills edited using p'shop 6. With TV aspect ratio set to 16:9 movies are great, stills are ssttrreettcchheedd. I need to change the aspect ratio of my stills by a constant factor so they are 'squeezed' when viewed at 4:3 (ie on my computer monitor) but expanded to the correct ratio on the TV.

I use a digi still camera for pics (and no, it doesn't have a 16:9 option and no, I can't afford one that does).

GIMP :: Pixel Aspect Ratio For Video?

Jun 1, 2011

Due to that nature of Video, which I work in, pixels are shaped differently for televisions than they are for computers or print. Standard Deffinition is 720x480 pixels yet you can get the pixel aspect ratio in 4:3 or widescreen which is 16:9 yet it is still considered 720x480 pixels. Is there a way to compensate for this? I author DVDs for clients and would like to use GIMP to create menus for the DVDs. I can start a PSD in Adobe Encore CS4, save it as a PSD, open it in GIMP and work in more detail there yet when I save it from GIMP and open it back up in Encore, because of the pixel aspect ratio, the size of the image and menu is stuck at 4:3. Can I save 720x480 pixels in the 16:9 format or do I need to just change the pixels?

GIMP :: Rule Of Thirds Or Golden Ratio Tool

Mar 4, 2011

I'd suggest a tool for photographic composition that has as options the rule of thirds or the golden ratio. So you can do photo composition on the fly andcrop the image based on it.

Could be use as base Cutting tool, only the grid would be added with the Rule of Thirds and/or Golden Ratio and with an proportionallyadjustable rectangle (3/4, 4/3).

I enclose a mockup. [URL] ........

Circulates a script that generates a grid of thirds rule, but this is done based on a final picture, so there is no way to make composition.
