      How do you turn off the pixel aspect ratio in CS6

          The only time it is on is when you use one of the video presets from file>new or you purposely turn it on manually.

           

          You will find it in the View menu under pixel aspect ratio.

            Well, you can't "turn it off".  

             

            Pixels have to have some aspect ratio or another, otherwise they wouldn't exist in the first place.

             

            You can select or delete an aspect ratio here:

              Some FAX files also enable aspect ratio correction automatically, since they come in as 2:1 aspect ratio.

                Some VueScan files also display the wrong aspect ratio, mostly b&w and Text files.  The developer didn't know why when asked about it some 4 years ago:

                 

                 

                Hi Rrrrr,

                Unfortunately, I just don't know the answer to this - I've never used
                Photoshop.

                Subject: QUESTION re Pixel Aspect Ratio  of some VueScan files opened in Photoshop
                 

                Hi Mr. Hamrick,

                Would you have any advice on  how to prevent certain VueScan files—mostly b&w and Text files—from  opening in Photoshop with the wrong pixel aspect ratio? 

                Not a  big problem, of course as it’s a trivial matter to fix them in Photoshop by  going to the View menu > Pixel Aspect Ratio > Square, but I just  wonder whether there’s a preference somewhere, either in VueScan or in  Photoshop, that would circumvent this small extra step?

                As it is, I  practically live inside Photoshop and VueScan, and I’m embarrassed to admit I  have not found a workaround for this tiny, insignificant issue.

                Thank  you for your generosity and dedication.

                Best  wishes,

                Rrrrr
