Elements 11 photo orientatation

Feb 22, 2013 1:40 AM

Tags: #11

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?

    Could you please attach a snapshot showing the behavior between Organizer and Windows explorer?

    You do know you can push the zoom slider to the right to increase the size of thumbnails in Organizer?

    Please upload a snapshot of the Elements Organizer showing the incorrect dimensions.

    It looks like it could be the camera settings as the aspect ratio is 1.33. Most DSLRs use 1.5 e.g for prints 6 x 4 inches.

     

    Both photos have a pixel dimension of 2736 x 3648

    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.
