Whenever I create a preset crop and then apply that preset to crop down an image, ie make image smaller than it is, although the physical measurements of the image reduce to the specified size, the pixel dimensions grow by almost 2.5X on both axis. This results in a larger file size than should be the case. How can I resolve this, without using the perspective crop which I have been doing as a work around?
Any solutions appreciated.
Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?
Did you enter the values as pixels?
Maybe the crop preset specifies a PPI that's about 2.5 times as great as the pre-cropped document's PPI.
For example, an initial document with 72 ppi and crop preset with 175 ppi resulting in a cropped document with 175 ppi.
In the new CS6 crop tool do you have it checked to save or delete the cropped pixels? Option in crop toolbar.
