photoshop elements 10

Apr 24, 2012 2:48 PM

I have photoshop elements 10, when I go into file and open a new blank file I get a bar about 1/2 inch tall and about 5 inches wide in the work space. I have tried to resize the blank file, fit to screen, immage size, canvas size and scale. I have removed the program from my computer and then re-installed it. Nothing works or makes a difference. How can I fix this problem.

    Choose a different preset in the File>New>Blank File window menu. What happens quite often is that PSE is defaulting to a size that would accommodate whatever is in the clipboard. If that's a line of text you happened to copy in another program, you'll get a long skinny grayscale file. Or are you saying that if you choose, say 4x6 at 300 ppi, you still get the long skinny file?

    Just close it without saving it and make a new file using a different preset. There are plenty to choose from.

    I don't understand quite what you are asking. Are you saying you have a paper size of 9.72 X 11.69 or that your image is that size? Also are you using mac or windows? Printing from editor or organizer?

    Open the PDF file in Acrobat, choose "Print", and select "Fit" to paper size.

    That is not the paper size, but the file dimensions. In any case, what Ken suggests should do it.
