Photoshop :: CS6 / Why Is Maintain Aspect Ratio In Free Transform Mode Unselected By Default

Oct 3, 2012

In Photoshop CS6, if using Free Transform to change the size of a newly-made selection, you have to click 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' option every time to maintain the aspect ratio. How annoying is that! Why isn't this 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' option selected by default? Certainly in my case, there are vastly more occasions when I want to maintain the aspect ratio, and so, in my case at least, it would be much more user-friendly to have 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' selected, by default. Or, alternatively, why isn't there an option in Preferences to either have 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' automatically selected, or unselected, by default, leaving the user to toggle from this starting position, if they want?

Photoshop :: Custom Aspect Ratio Cropping

Jan 6, 2006

I want to crop a picture to fit my new 24" 16:10 monitor. The res is 1920x1200. I don't want the picture to be stretched in any way, but I'll accept decreasing the resolution to fit my 1920x1200. So my question is, can I force the crop selection to turn 16:10?

Photoshop :: "Maintain Aspect Ratio"

Feb 27, 2009

Photoshop file I have to click on the little chain link icon in the context menu, the one that says "Maintain aspect ratio". I almost NEVER free transform without maintaining aspect ratio. Is there somewhere I can set this to be "ON" by default?

I know I can maintain the aspect ration by holding Shift as I drag, but what I want is to NOT have to do that because of a disability in my left hand.

editing the registry so that this option can be ON by default?

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 :: Pixel Aspect Ratio

Feb 26, 2008

Since installing Photoshop CS2, whenever I open a file (.tiff), PS selects the incorrect aspect ratio (a custom ratio of 0.5, when in fact the file is meant to have an aspect ratio of 1.0).

1. Is the aspect ratio stored in the file as an attribute, or does Photoshop guess the ratio from some other attribute?

2. Can I force PS to open all files with an aspect ratio of 1.0?

In older versions of Photoshop the files opened correctly. When I open the .tiff in a text editor, I can't find any attribute named 'aspect ratio' or somesuch.

Photoshop :: Pixel Aspect Ratio

Nov 7, 2008

I'm running Photoshop CS2 (9) on XP pro. I have a bunch of tiffs made from scans of 36" x 48" documents. They all are coming in with a strange distortion. A box pops up: "Pixel aspect ration correction is for preview purposes only. Turn it off for maximum image quality." I know how to turn it off, but I cannot afford the time to save 144 huge files. Can this default be reset? To reset this default to "square", I have tried everything short of deleting pixel aspect ratios. I never want anything but "square". What will it hurt to delete pixel aspect ratios?

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).

Photoshop :: Pixel Aspect Ratio

Mar 19, 2009

I'm using Photoshop since the Photoshop CS versions. However I'm quite unpleased to see the following since I installed Photoshop CS4 from my university (it's a legal version).

I can't seem to draw simple circle. (Yes, I pressed in the Shift button to draw perfect cirlces and squares) I get the following:

This is not a circle and my grid lines aren't even like squares they're more like rectangles. Now some details about my monitor. It is a 15,4 (if I'm correct) widescreen laptop, at the resolution of 1024 x 768. I didn't have this kind of problems with the CS3 version (which is also legal).

So I though let's check the pixel aspect ratio, however normally I set it on "square" and this problem will be fixed. Now if I set it on square I get something like that image I posted. So I tried removing the pixel aspect ratio correction, but it didn't help, because it is disabled on square.

Photoshop :: Pixel Aspect Ratio

Feb 6, 2009

CS2 and happy with it. Newly installed HP 22" widescreen. Getting to grips with Pix Aspect ratio for first time I have found out how to set a ppi value that produces accurate "print size" previews. However, I edit down from hundreds of sport pictures regularly and want to see an accurate ratio display - it affects the dynamic of the picture IMVHO.

There isn't time to go dragging sub menus around. I'm quite happy with less display space or to use the spare for menus but am finding Win Vista has ideas of its own about what's best for me. Upsum - I want all photos to display with accurate proportions (final use - print). Any advice on screen /photoshop set-up to achieve this would be welcome.

Photoshop :: Getting Pixel Aspect Ratio Warning

May 3, 2013

I recently opened a video in PS CS4. Ever since then I get 'pixel aspect ratio' warning and some of the images I create in PS are distorted on screen or when I tile the window and move a layer form one to the other. I can't figure out how to disable or keep this from happening.

Photoshop :: Widescreen 1080p And Aspect Ratio

Sep 19, 2013

I have some questions related to the use of Photoshop for the preparation of images for projectors and presentations.
I've noticed lately that most presentations I seem to attend are presented with images in widescreen format (16:9). I have found some higher resolution projectors available in widescreen format but have some questions.
In case I create my slides with a size of 1920 x 1080, do I need to adjust anything in Photoshop for this ? Using basic mathematics I would imagine that no adjustments would be necessary. After all 1920 x 1080 amounts to a perfect relationship of 16:9. Is this correct ? Should I expect that images projected by a projector with this aspect ratio will contain square pixels and no adjustments are necessary in Photoshop ?
Is there any situation where a pixel is project as a rectangle instead of a square and adjustments to accomodate this need to be made in Photoshop ?

Photoshop :: Image Issue - Aspect Ratio

Oct 28, 2008

I have run into an aspect ratio (i.e., 1.25 vs. 1.33) issue for my images (using PhotoShop and/or Microsoft PhotoEditor):

I've created documentation for nearly ten years for an older type company using a CRT monitor. The monitor allowed me to use all resolutions when working with images without any screen degradation. Generally I used a resolution of 800 by 600 but would change, if necessary, due to the project. At this point, I've been given a new LCD monitor and am at the mercy of its native resolution (i.e., 1280 by 1024) even at a higher DPI. In other words, if I work with images and text other than its native resolution (i.e., highest resolution), their appearance is distorted and/or blurred. Since my documentation is image and/or graphics intensive, this is an issue for me to consider.

The first issue regarding this change came about this week. I was asked to revise a section of a manual I created awhile ago. Thus, I found myself saving images in a screen resolution of 1280 by 1024. The original document saved images in a screen resolution of 800 by 600. I feel I can get away with things if its only a few images. However, if I have to revise complete sections; I just don't think things look consistent. For one thing, I'm now using ClearType Font on the LCD monitor vs. the old CRT.

I would like to see if there is a way to somehow change an image saved in 1280 by 1024 screen resolution to 800 by 600 (with similar quality when revising documentation). If not, I think I'll inquire about using two monitors at my desk - using the CRT for revised documentation and LCD for new projects. Agree/Disagree with this scenario?
