Not directly but if you are using them as wallpaper you should set them with the Center (not Stretch) option from the Position setting. But in that case their resolution must be smaller than that of the monitor or the photos will be chopped.

I need to make copies of my little brothers highschool football pics to send into the coaches at colleges, i try to scan the image of a 5x7 to 4x6 photo paper but it ends up cutting the image in half...


The images need to be re-sized. It's important when re-sizing to keep aspect proportions since a 5x7 print is a vertical or portrait print and a 4x6 is a horizontal or landscape print. Therefore, when re-sizing if you check off keep aspect ratio, you may get either 4" tall or 6" wide but not both or you'll stretch the picture distorting it. Picasa by Google is a good and easy to use photo editing program that should suit your needs and is a free download. Picasa Best of luck with your project and please post back with any other questions.

I just bought a new monitor and I don't know how to adjust monitor so the photos don't look stretched out.


Display a picture somewhere in the middle of your desktop, as it is now. Go to Windows' Display Settings->Advanced->Adapter->List all modes. Choose one that has the first number much greater than the second (eg: 800 x 600 pixels is a 4:3 ratio for a regular monitor) so that the ratio is higher, closer to 1.6:1 (eg: 1280x768 pixels) and apply. Try several ones until you get the desired proportions of the persons/objects in the picture. Once you're satisfied, Apply all the way out of the windows until you're back to the desktop.
Good luck!

How do i resize picture to square aspect ratio ? that is to resize 640x480 pixel to 600x600 pixel without stretching the photo or changing the aspect ratio


Well, you can't. The best you can do in a photo-editing program such as Photoshop Elements, is to crop the picture to square dimensions.

22'' LCD monitor aspect ratio is off.


Set resolution to the native 1680 x 1050. Then, using the buttons on the monitor, go into the monitor's menu. go down to "Image Setting", go to "HDMI Mode", then select "PC Mode". This should help everything fit on screen correctly.

It is obvous that the aspect ratio that you are watching the program in is the native mode if you see the proportions correctly. If the native mode was in 16:9, it would not stretch when you change to this mode.

The broadcaster may be down converting all their video to 4:3 because the majority of sets in his area are still on the old aspect ratio.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
