In depends on whether you're creating a video that is to be shown on a widescreen or 4:3 LCD. It appears you may be creating a 16:9 image.
Steve this is very nice of you to help. I am creating a 16:9 video from
pictures that are 4:3 It appears that the 16:9 crop in quick
fix is not the size I need when I get to Pre. What size should I use in
Pse 7 to get the proper results in Pre 7. any help would be great. sgh
As I said, it depends on the aspect ratio of your final piece.
In your first post you described unwanted letterboxing. That makes me think you're creating 16:9 photos for a 4:3 project.
"What is the correct settings for Photoshop Elements 7 to transfer"
For the transfer out of Photoshop Elements:
Some people have said that the following will work to give you 16:9 on the transfer from PSE to PRE. Now I am not totally convinced that it will always work, but I think it is worth your trying it.
-- In the Photoshop Elements Slide Show Editor Preferences, CHECK the box for CROP of Landscape photos. Do this even if you have already cropped the photos to 16:9 aspect ratio (which I think you have)
For the processing in Premiere Elements:
Steve's post referenced the probability that you are not using a Premiere Elements project setting with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
To fix that problem,
I recommend that you open Premiere Elements yourself and make sure that an appropriate (SD or HD) 16:9 aspect ratio Premiere Elements project is open BEFORE you send/transfer that slideshow from PSE to PRE. (In other words do not rely on the automatic starting of PRE when the slideshow is sent.)
Note: If you did extensive pan or zoom in making the slide show in Photoshop Elements. there may be some additional steps in Premiere Elements that can improve the final image quality. But I suggest that the aspect ratio problem be solved first.
A totally different approach would be:
consider doing the entire slide show in Premiere Elements, especially since it is a widescreen slide show. You may wish to consider that approach if the above suggestions do not give you what you want.
