Elements 10 canvas not working with tiff images; works fine with jpegs. What to do? It does not allow me to add a colored canvas, only a blank canvas.

    Could explain more about what you can't do wth tiffs?

     

    Have you checked under Image>Mode to see if the tiifs are RGB Color and 8 bits/channel?

     

    You can post a screenshot if you feel that would help.

    Perhaps some of the tiffs are already layers.

    In other words, since jpegs don't support layers, they all ways open with one locked background layer, but the tiff format does

    support layers so the tiffs don't have to have a locked background layer and can already be a regular layer that supports transparency.

     

    For the tiffs you could add a new color fill layer below and use the color you want the enlarged canvas to be.

     

     

    On pse 10 look at the bottom of the layers panel for the new adjustment of fill layer icon

    When you open the tiffs you can flatten the image and the canvas size dialog will have Canvas Extension Color enabled

    or you can flatten the image after using layers before saving if you don't want a layered tiff file.

     

    Right click on the layer thumbnail in the layers panel and choose Flatten Image.
