I looked at that, if you manually resize the image and make it bigger (no option to lock proportions with it seems), it reduces the MP.
You used to have a set of size options when importing the raw file, one would increase the size and MP from standard (the other options reduced it), from I think it was 22 to effectively 25 - giving an image file size of around 75 MB. but now the image size is remaining around 65 MB.
if you manually resize the image and make it bigger (...) it reduces the MP.
I'm sorry, but you lost me already. Make it bigger but reduce pixels? I've no idea what you mean.
I have absolutely no limitations here. I can set any pixel size I want.
You apparently have a landscape image, resize to 4096 px width at portrait orientation. This seems fully as expected.
Just uncheck "resize" if you want the full size.
If I uncheck then I'm back to my original issue. The raw import feature used to have a set of size options below the image, one of those sizes was actually larger than the original image size - which would result in a file size of 75MB instead of 65MB, it increased the dimensions and the apparent MP too resulting in a larger image and file all around. This version doesn't have that set of options and whatever you increase results in something else being reduced. This did not used to be the case. I've been using photoshop for over 10 years, everything else in this new version seems to be improving but I have this one specific issue with importing the raw files. I've been as clear as possible. D:o you remember the option on older versions? I gave a high quality larger file to work with direct from import. However you vary the options on the newer versions you can't get the same result. Someone else here must have noticed this?
There is nothing wrong, you're just missing the obvious. Step back and look at your screenshot again!
You have the original pixel dimensions, but flipped on the side. You're now resizing the long side to the length of the short side - hence you get 4096 x 2731 instead of 6144 x 4096.
Once you sort that out, you can enlarge to your heart's content.
You know what - I'm sorry
I'd had a crazy long all-nighter session sorting out images for a client, then decided - when I should have simply gone to bed - to set up the new photoshop. At the very start I made a silly mistake, tried to sort it out then decided to call it a day, responding to your remarks with the problem still in my head but feeling more and more tired.
Responded again to your comment earlier with the problem still in my head but not in front of me on the screen - however with a fresh head I just turned it all on, opened up PS and today could instantly see what was going on - Oops!
Thank you for being patient with a sleep deprived photographer who must have been getting annoying yesterday
I am officially embarrassed
