2nd, if your pictures are the correct size, simply open in Photoshop and resave is the fix I have read (can't remember if you have to remove the pictures from the project and reimport)
This bug is fixed in Premiere Pro CS5.5.
The workaround, as stated above, is to open the images in Photoshop and resave them without making any changes, and then import them into Premiere Pro CS5.
Guys - thanks for all our help, it is appreciated.
1 question (and I have tried hunting it down - honest) - but how do I automate the opening & saving of a file.
I have tried looking at actions, and also the auto batch system. Just cat see how to Open & then close it. I have a number of folders, but if it means running it for each folder that is fine, I can do that.
Sorry for being really simple - and it is probably staring mne in the face, but I cant see it for the life of me!!
I think you need to ask Photoshop questions in that forum (or Photoshop Elements forum, if that is what you have)
posted on photoshop forum, and for the benefit of those who hae a similar issue and may come accross this thread, it was resolved as follows;
With Photoshop you could use:-
File > Scripts > Image Processor
fairly self explanatory when there, and has worked, Thanks to all those who help both on this thread and the photoshop one.
In John T's first link, "Photo Scaling," there are steps for using Automate>Batch and an Action, to Scale entire folders of Still Images. As with many operations in PS, there are a few other ways to do it, such as using Scripts. Still, that would be a great starting point.
