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.

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 Pixel Size Doesn't Match Grid Pixel Size

Dec 6, 2012

I'm using Photoshop CS5 and as you can see on the picture below, when I set my grid line to every 1 px, grid doesn't match canvas pixel size.

Now I'm not able to draw sharp shapes using pen tool because even if I hold shift key everything gets blurry.

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 :: Canvas Size For Web Page

May 14, 2009

I need to design my first template using photoshop. the content area of the web site will be 980px ( width ) ..

I like to add border to each side ( left and right ) .. i seen many sits using background image that spans the entire screen and has left and right boarder added to the background , which effectively looks like border on each side of content area.

however, i was not able to figure what would be the best canvas size for this . as each site i looked at , background was set to different size ..

my main content will be in center of the monitor .

Photoshop :: Canvas Size Keeps Redoubling Whatever Is Inputted

Sep 13, 2013

I have been resizing images for the web, and applying a background canvas border, and have been doing this for days, including today... then, all of the sudden, changing and doing nothing at all, I go to add the Canvas Size, I am importing the images, directly from Lightroom, adjusting the Image Size from the full edited resolution file, to like say 9" long at 108ppi.  And then, I open up Canvas Size, and am merely adding a small border of .125" to the width, and .25" to the bottom so as to apply the image's title and a logo icon.  And like I said, it has been working normally up until a half hour ago, where for some stupid reason, it is making like a 6.125" x 9.25" input and creating a 12.25" x 18.5" canvas!
One thing I have noticed when it started doing it, the image's dimensions all of the sudden were not displayed aleady in the input fields, but just showed 0's.  I have closed out and rebooted the program a couple times, to no avail... and even went in and updated that, apparently same 14.1 update that keeps popping up every single day, and nothing has changed.

Photoshop :: Difference Between Canvas And Image Size

Jun 8, 2006

I've resized a photo in Image Size but when opening Canvas Size, the dimensions have changed slightly. Why?

To get the printed size I set in Image Size, do I have to alter the canvas size or do I not need to bother with it?
