My problem in editing photos is about the pictures graphics


When editing photos the key thing to remember is that the resolution is high. For example if you are re-sizing an image that is small in image size, you are going to get some pixelation.
A neat trick in trying to fix this is by going to: "Image" > > "Image Size" >> And then you'll see something called resolution. if its on 72dpi, change it to 300 dpi
*Remember if your'e working with something for print then its always better to work in CMYK Hope this helps

I created a collage in Shape Collage and saved it as a psd and opened it in Gimp. I can actually choose a photo and move it around but I cannot choose a photo when I just want to rotate it. What am I...


Hi phib577,

You mentioned that you created a collage in Shape Collage and opened it in Gimp, yes you can choose a picture but cannot rotate anymore since the Shape Collage has already formatted the picture as part of the Collage and if Rotated then most likely it will not rotate.

If you want that picture rotated then you will need to use Shape Collage again to be able to edit and rotate the picture that you need to rotate.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

HOW TO RESIZE PICTURE AT ADOBE??


To resize an image with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 you first need to open the image. After opening the image you will select Image---> Resize---> Image Size. If you select canvas size the image itself will not change.
At the Image Size menu, make sure that the "resample" check box at the bottom of the menu is selected. Then enter the desired resolution and width/height. For printing an image, a resolution of 300 pixels/inch or more is desirable. When images are intended for computer or web display, 72 pixels/inch (sometimes referred to as dpi) is sufficient. You can set the image size in pixels (at the top of the menu) or in inches (at the lower part of the menu). Once the desired sizes are entered you only need to press "ok" for the change to be made.
Photoshop Elements also offers another method of resizing an image. You can use the "crop" function to resize your image quickly. The crop tool looks like a small square with overlapping edges and can also be accessed through the Image menu bar at the top of your screen.

Once the crop tool options bar opens, select "custom" and then enter the desired height/width and resolution. To crop to specific pixels you must enter the letters "px" after the size number in the width/height boxes. If only one dimension is important you can enter information in only one box and let the other dimension be determined purely by where you place the crop line.

After entering your preferences you will click and drag the crop tool across the image to select the part of the image you wish to keep.

How do I put a person from one photo into another photo with some one? I have a new Photo Explosion Deluxe.Thank you. Bud


For shifting embeding one pic into another you need to first crop the initial image which you wish to move. While moving you shall keep in mind about the back ground in both the pics hence you should select the persons pic whose pic which you want to move very closely through the body. For that you can use either wand which would not be of too much help you will have to manually select the area for cropping so increase the visual limits of the pic and use the select manually tool and use control or alt key for minor adjustments. After selecting the image just copy and paste on the new picture and move as per your requirement.

Crop the photo in diffeent shaps like heart.


The crop tool will not let you crop in shapes like elements cookie cutter tool will. However, there is a work around to do what you want to do which indecently is the same as you would have to do in Photoshop CS4.
1. Create a new document file or press Ctrl + N.
2. Open an image you want to crop.
3. Press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C to copy the image.
4. Select the new document file you created and press Ctrl + V to paste the new image in a new layer.
5. Select the Rectangle tool or press U for the hotkey.
6. Move the mouse over to the Rectangle Tool and hold down the left mouse button and select Custom Shape Tool.
7. At the top of the menu you will see a Shape: icon with a pull down option. Left Click on the arrow to expand the window to select the shape you want. If you want more shapes to choose from when the shape window is displayed click on the arrowhead with a circle around it and select a new library or all.
8. Use the mouse to draw the shape to the size and location you desire.
9. The shape will be in a new layer with a mask which will cover the image. Hold down the Ctrl key and left click on the Shape 1 layer in the layer window. This will mask the shape and only the shape.
10. Press Ctrl +Shift + I to invert the mask selection.
11. Use the Select pull down menu to Feather, Modify, Contract, Expand and Border if you want apply those effects around the edge of the mask.
12. In the Layer window click on the eye next to the Shape 1 layer to hide the image.
13. Select the image layer you want to crop and press delete which will delete everything outside the custom shape you created.
14. Do not forget you can right click on the image layer and select Blending Option to add drop shadows and other special effects for the cropped shape.

Need to get scanned photos to between 300 and 600 dpi


What I saw first off is that although the resolution indicates 96 DPI, the file size itself between the 2 examples are drastically different. You are putting raster images into MS Word for publication work, and that is a NO NO. Word was not created for any kind of high resolution printing. It's a glorified text editor that people seem to think is an option for printing. YOU WILL NEVER GET 300 or 600 DPI images out of Word. Ever.
To create your project for printing, you need to use software more suited for the task. InDesign and Quark are examples, but they are very expensive. In my opinion, Publisher would be better for this kind of project and I hate myself for saying that.
Talk to your Printer, find out his specifications for Applications and Linescreen for Printing. The minimum requirement is 280 DPI, but if the image is placed at 100%, 600 DPI is overkill.
Oh, and try to never scan a scan... you are looking for trouble... a little thing called a Moiré pattern comes into play, and it will make you images print NASTY!
I could go on about your post all day long, but if there is anything else I didn't explain, please post again.
