why does 11 show portrait photos as almost square, 9 did not. Even after cropping to 4x6 they still look as if sat on, -they print fine but display in Organiser and Editor as "sat on" How do I correct it?
but why is the left hand photo not shown as tall and thin, makes editing difficult. autocropped in Elements 11 for printing on 6x4 paper to give correct height but onlycentre part of width, 2/3 of trunk on left tree andabout same on right missing
Just checked printing dialog box, autocropping off gives same photo, rotating 90 gives more, but only full picture printed when selecting 7x5 on 6x4, but then has white border top and bottom
It may be worth checking your monitor settings. Go to the control panel and check dpi scaling under Appearance or Display.
It’s not uncommon to see a setting of 125% or higher to improve screen readability but PSE requires a dpi of 96 or 100%
This often affects menus. Whilst the Editor Menu will appear at 120% to 149% the Organizer Menu (and the advanced button in downloader) won’t. Sometimes the mouse or tool cursors are distorted. Images could be affected
Try a setting of 115% to 120% otherwise use 100%. A common display resolution, notably for notebooks/laptops, and netbooks is 1024 x 768 but PSE requires a screen height of 800 for full functionality. If your height resolution is out of the range 768 to 800 try experimenting with the slider/settings.
Sir, you are a star! That`s fixed it, trouble was new Desktop didn`t have VGA out so wouldn`t use old monitor,so went to a different one with DVI, but not used before - this one uses 16:9 or 4:3, so using 16:9 have changed to 1280 x 800. They now look better, and not as if sat on. Think it`s time to persuade the Banker(wife) that a new monitor is needed
