PS CS6 How to drag a layer into another PSD file at-size?
I have a file A that had been previously cropped with DELETE CROPPED PIXELS UNCHECKED
When i drag a layer from file A where the layer appears correctly sized,
the resulting layer in file B has the original pre-cropped size i.e., the cropped pixels reappear
how can i set a mode for DRAG LAYER or otherwise achieve to be the cropped-size = IMAGE SIZE from file A
and not have it restore the cropped off pixels on the edges?
i'd rather not re crop all the A files with DELETE CROPPED PIXELS.

>Open "My Computer" from your desktop. Double-click your hard drive.
>Open "Documents and Settings."
>Open the folder labeled with your user name.
>Open "Local Settings" followed by "Temp."
>Scroll down to the files beginning with "Photoshop" ("PS" for older Photoshop CS builds). This will be followed by a series of letters and numbers.
>Double-click each "Photoshop" ("PS") temp file to open them in Photoshop CS. This is the only way to identify which temp file contains the project you wish to recover. Luckily, because when Photoshop shuts properly it deletes its temp files, there should be no more than three or four.
>Select "Save As" from the "File" menu when you find the temp file you want. This will make the file permanent.

I don't think I've ever seen a PSD file corrupted on disk myself. Often it's a sign of system instability. Did you have a crash or power failure while it was saving (keeping in mind that it may appear to finish before it's actually all the way saved to disk)?
Are your disk hardware and file system healthy? Look in your event logs for any indications of failures.
Try some repair tool: PSD Repair Kit is the ultimate Adobe PSD repair tool that is a must-have for any digital artist, photographer or other professional working with numerous PSD files.
I'll give you a trick! it has a large file size because of pixels, so you need to minimize it.
Open the file with mspaint and crop"
1. right click the file that you want to minimize file size, then choose " open with " then there's a option of program, choose the mspaint . 2. then once the picture was already open with mspaint, goto toolbox and choose the Crop tool.. 3. Crop the picture..then open a new mspaint, then paste the cropped picture into it, then save afterwards.. 4. then its done.
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.
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.
In photoshop 7.0, open two files that need merging. Create new file with required resolution, size, etc. Then drag the layer of first photo, then second photo to the newly created PSD file. You can edit each layer on the new file by croping or cutting.
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.
To crop or straighten images in Camera Raw In the Camera Raw dialog box, select the Crop tool or Straighten tool . (Optional) If you want the crop area constrained to specific proportions, click the Crop tool icon and choose a proportion from the pop‑up menu. Choosing Custom opens the Custom Crop dialog box, where you can specify the proportions or the dimensions of the crop. Click OK. Do one of the following: To crop the image, drag the Crop tool over the image. To straighten the image, drag the Straighten tool in the preview image to establish what’s horizontal or vertical. (Optional) To adjust the crop area, do one of the following: To scale or rotate the crop area, drag just outside the bounding box handles. To move the crop area, click in the bounding box and drag. If you selected several images in the Camera Raw dialog box, they are all cropped to the same size, with the crop applied in the same position. Note: To cancel the crop operation, press Esc with the Crop tool selected or click the Crop tool and choose Clear Crop from the pop‑up menu. To cancel the crop and close the Camera Raw dialog box without processing the camera raw image file, click the Cancel button or deselect the Crop tool and press Esc. Click Open, Done, or Save to apply the crop and process the camera raw image file.
Most digital cameras have an aspect ratio of 4x3.
35mm cameras have an aspect ratio of 3x2.
6x4 photopaper also has an aspect ratio of 3x2.
Therefore you don't get cropping when printing from 35mm film.
To make the picture fill out the 6 inches, the digital footprint has to be 6" by 4.5".
So .5 inches is removed in the process.
If you can find a processor that will print 5.333 x 4 on the 6 x 4 paper, there would be no clipping necessary.
Since you have Photoshop, you can crop the photo to a 3 x 2 ratio. That way you control what is cut.
I use Photoshop Elements and when I use the Rectangular Marquee Tool, I set Style to "Fixed Aspect Ratio" and Width to 3, and Height to 2.
